1 – How does it work?
We offer 3 courses in calm water (without rapids) on the red river 8, 12 and 23 km, these are descents that are done in complete autonomy, so without a guide. Departures are from here and depending on the chosen route we will pick you up at the end of the journey with the minibus. We will explain the routes before your departure.
The length of the trip may vary depending on the flow of the river, your pace and breaks.
- 8 km: 2h
- 12 km: 3h
- 23 km: 6 hours
The times indicated correspond to the duration of the descent with a regular rhythm without calculating stops. We suggest taking 1-2 more hours if you want to stop for a picnic, swim or simply take breaks.
