of this activity

Meet at the former “Pont de Gueydan” train station (see access map) at 10:00 am or 2:00 pm, By the meantime, you can visit the area (the fortifed town of Entrevaux, the Daluis gorges, etc…) .

The guides will welcome you there. They will hand out your equipment and give a brief safety talk. Then, we will embark on an cano-raft descent of the Var river that will take you from the Gueydan Bridge down to the take-out beach, about 500 m after Entrevaux (a 8 km ride which takes approximately 1 h30).

The current is very continuous and this trip is punctuated by small rapids of easy to medium difficulty. We will have plenty of time to learn how to manoeuver this inflatable canoe smoothly.

As the water of the Var is quite warm in summer, we will stop in two places to jump, if we wish, in the river.

At the end of the trip, we will run a fun rapid just below the beautiful medieval city of Entrevaux. The town itself is worth the trip to the Var, and you may take the opportunity to visit it.
