The more the merrier!
There’s plenty of merriment to be had at the 24-Hour Kayak event which takes place there every year in the spring. In the form of a relay, the goal is to do as many laps of the white-water park as possible, on a fully equipped course. An unforgettable adventure to be experienced as a team and in complete safety. This unique event in France brings together more than 1000 participants on the water (135 teams).
