Whitewater Skills Week – An adventure away to rural France

This is a week-long residential kayaking trip which takes you on an adventure to rural France. Our camp based accommodation will be in the forests alongside some of the best rivers in the region to perfect you skills. We will also have the opportunity to explore the locality and its innate charm. The main rivers we use will be Le Chalaux, La Cure (the upper section) and a small creek called Le Saut de Goloux. The rivers are all dam release so, unlike most of the UK, there is guaranteed consistent water even though it is mostly warm and sunny…perfect!
