What a great time! This is the perfect activity for active people who don't mind a bit of exercise, teamwork, in a gorgeous setting that doesn't present great danger. There are some slight class IV spots, but mostly class III, and if you go on a day with some water volume, it's a good bumpy ride! (we learned that the river sports operators in the area have a deal with EDF—the power supply company in France—who manages the dam upstream, and they release water during the high season so that the river increases in volume. Then EDF uses that water to manage the morning peak electricity usage. Win win. This also ensures excellent chances of good conditions when you go. An interesting example of public/private sector cooperation). Anyway, there are spots you can jump off of boulders, float down the current, you can even tip the boat and all go in hehe. Very nice people, very well organised, good equipment, all in all we had an excellent time. Thanks to all the people at Evolution 2!
