French Alps Kayaking Trip
The French Alps has long been a popular destination for white water kayakers. You will be based close to Briancon in the Southern Alps, which is surrounded by some of the finest whitewater runs in Europe and boasts over 300 days of sunshine a year. Your accommodation will be a very spacious self-catering chalet a few miles from Briancon in the village of Le Monetier Les Bains which has a spa, swimming pool, shops, bars, and restaurants.
On this French Alps Classics Grade 3/4 trip our expert guides/coaches offer a friendly experience on and off the water, giving each day structure and guidance on the aim of the day. As an individual there are opportunities through the day if you want to push yourself or want a break and a chance to sightsee in this beautiful historic area.
Our French Alps Improver course is a excellent introduction to the Alps and for those wanting to explore the region, with lots of coaching thrown in to improve your confidence skill set to get you looking like a pro on up to class 3 water.
Skill Level: You should be happy on grade 3/4 for the French Alps Classics course, and happy on grade 2/3 for the French Alps Improver course.
