This hydrospeed descent is an extension of the “Discovery” tour for those who would like to enjoy a longer activity time. With this activity, you descend the Aude river directly in the water, equipped with a float and fines. The extra kilometres we swim are more challenging and will definitely fulfil your inner adrenaline junkie.
Tour programme- Preparation:
The meeting takes place at our base in the centre of the village of Belvianes-et-Cavirac. Your guide will welcome you and provide you with the necessary equipment for the outing. He will also give you an introduction to safety instructions and the basics of this special type of white water swimming. Of course, after theory comes practice! We will reach the starting point on the Aude thanks to our transfer shuttle and take on the water.- Tour:
The tour lasts about 2hrs. It will lead us down the Aude and will make us take a certain number of rapids. Strong sensations guaranteed! And beautiful scenery too. Indeed, we will pass through the gorges of Pierre-Lys, famous throughout the Aude by its impressive rocks and beauty. The World Hydrospeed and Canoe-kayak Championship took place in this portion of the Aude, so thrills are guaranteed!- Return:
The end of the course will be directly opposite the base. There, you will find a picnic area and enough space to rest before taking the road again. You will also have the possibility to purchase the pictures of the excursion and bring all those memories home.
