Tour programme- Preparation:
The meeting point is fixed individually
with your instructor, based on the level of the river. We will meet at the meeting point of the chosen route and we will provide you with the equipment. Then, we will organize a carpool together to drive to the start of the route. Once there, the group will carry the equipment to the river. It will be a short, 10-minute walk to the river, where you will inflate your high-quality canoe before embarking.- Tour:
We choose the route according to the conditions of the river:
- Fier River
: from Lovagny to Vallières, this is a descent that requires a lot of manoeuvring due to U-shaped gorges and class 2 rapids.
- Chéran River
: from Alby-sur-Chéran to Rumilly, our certified guide describes it as one of the most beautiful courses in France for its exceptional natural scenery.
- Guiers River
: in the Pont-de-Beauvoisin area, you can admire its old stones and hanging gardens, before escaping into bucolic scenery.
The three courses are sporty descents with several rapids. You will be accompanied by our qualified instructors for your safety.- Return:
At the end of the tour, we will take you back to your car using the carpooling vehicle used to get to the starting point.
