This was a great adventure for our group of ten. Nathan and Antoine showed us all sorts of fun options to play in and on the river. They also pointed out the geology of the area.

Well organised, good equipment, beautiful sceneries(!!!) and Robin, our guide, was excellent (patient, gave clear instructions in both French and English, friendly). The guide in all-yellow outfit in the other raft (don't know his name) was very helpful as well. Highly recommended.
