France 2021 

Why join us?


We love the continuous feel of the rivers in the French Alps. Hopping from eddy to eddy, with clear pools every now and then to stop and take in the stunning scenery. Within an hours drive of our base we have over a hundred kilometres of world class white water of all grades to choose from. This course is aimed at those who are comfortable on grade 2/3.

What can we expect?


6 days of boating in the Hautes-Alpes
Fluid and dynamic leadership
1:6 is our maximum ratio
Appropriate progression through the grades
A mix of coaching and guiding to suit the group
Demo boats from Silverbirch Canoes
Photos and video footage

Where do we stay?


Staying near what we think is one of the best boulangeries in France is important to us, this is why we choose Camping du lac “les Iscles” on the banks of the River Durance. This site boasts its own lake and fantastic views of Mont Dauphin. It’s also slap bang in the middle of a white water boating Mecca.
