What you'll do

You will have an appointment on the Oxygen Aventure activity base in Belvianes-et-Cavirac. After introducing ourself you will equip with neoprene suits, vest and helmet to be ready for the activity. Then we will take a shuttle by minibus until the sta of the course 14 km upstream of the river. We will spend a briefing time for everyone to understand how to snowboard raft. It is I who will give the instructions to manage the raft in the river all along the descent. The route begins with 3 km of turbulent wild gorges of Saint-Georges, upstream Axat. Then, calm crossing of the village of Axat where we will pass under the old bridge, then in the village of Saint-Martin-Lys. Then follow the gorges of Pierre-Lys where are linked the most beautiful rapids. This part is reserved for experienced people and comfortable in the water (from 12 years). The less sporty participants will be picked up by our shuttle which will allow them to observe certain passages for 15 minutes, then to board again to finish all together to the base. It will then be necessary to un-equip, rinse the combis and finally get dressed to meet around a cool drink to discuss your experience.
