TOUR DESCRIPTION

We offer 2 types of kayaking courses for beginners . These courses take place over 5 days (half a day of navigation per day).

Depending on water levels, we propose you to paddle either in Annecy area (Haute-Savoie, on the Fier or the Cheran river), or in the Tarentaise valley in Savoie (on the Isere river).

The “Introduction course- Level 1” is aimed at people who have never kayaked before and allows them to become familiar with the activity and to acquire the basic techniques of river navigation. The objective at the end of the course is to be able to navigate on class II/III courses.

The “Introduction course- Level 2” is aimed at people who already have experience of kayaking on flat or easy whitewater. It allows to deepen the technical fundamentals and to refine the techniques of navigation in whitewater. The objective at the end of the course is to be able to navigate on class III courses.

All courses are open and maintained from one person registered.
Possibility to come with your own paddling gear.
For more information on our “Introduction course-level 1 & 2” courses, ask for our technical sheets.

To practice river kayaking, it is mandatory to know how to swim.
