You dream of kayaking on the isere the packraft allows you to do so!

PACKRAFT INITIATION

Packraft on the Isère, a new outdoor activity!

Packraft gives an autonomous approach to sailing with a flexible choice of routes. With family and friends, it is an off-the-beaten track activity, giving you a real sense of adventure and excitement. (More info on the packraft in Bourg-saint-Maurice)

 

Who is the packraft initiation for? An outing that can be done with the family, or to get your bearings in independent navigation. The aim is to navigate quietly in a beautiful part of the river of levels I and II. The boats are single-seaters and it is also possible to go in a two-seater. 

Description of the packraft descent:

After having equipped ourselves with our backpack containing our packraft, we start with a short hike in the middle of nature along the river, which will lead us to our launching place. Then the guide teaches us some useful gestures for our navigation: learning to go straight, to turn as well as to stop in the counter-currents.

We will have to manage our boat while remaining attentive to the advice of the guide. A quiet start where we will take our bearings and then...glide along some incredibly beautiful stretches of river!
