Hydrospeed is unknown to you? Then come learn! This white water sport consists in swimming down a river equipped with a float made of reinforced foam. Slalom between the waves, enjoy the pretty sceneries and relax in the fresh waters of the Pyrenean rivers.
Tour programme- Preparation:
We welcome in the heart of the village of Belvianes-et-Cavirac. This is where our rafting school is located and therefore where we will provide you with the equipment. After meeting your guide, he will brief you on the safety instructions and tell you more about hydrospeed. We will then depart for the starting point on the river aboard our bus shuttle. Our driver will follow us through the journey and be there to take photos - which you will be able to purchase at the end of the excursion. - Tour:
Once these steps are completed, it’s time to dip into the water! The Aude will be our playground for the next couple of hours. We will slalom, swim-surf on the waves and let ourselves slide being carried away by the flow of the water. Hydrospeed is a very fun activity and the hour in the water will pass as in flash! We guarantee lots of fun for those who have never tried the activity before.
The beginning of the tour is the same as for the “Sporty” course and both groups start together. However, the people taking part to the “Discovery” tour will be picked up after an hour not to face the more difficult part of the river.- Return:
Both groups will be brought back to the base afterwards and enjoy the picnic area. Photos of the tour will also be on sale at the base.
