Rivers ideal for white water sports

Come and discover the famous Isère River through fun and enjoyable sports. This is one of the most famous sites in the world, host of the kayak and canoe world championships for both slalom and classic racing. The 24-kilometre "Integrale Run" is one of France's longest runs – spend half a day discovering it at your own pace. You can also discover another beautiful nearby river : the Doron De Bozel - this river is untamed and free of any human alteration. Other rivers can be navigated but it will require more organisation and advance warning.

And remember : the wetter, the better !
All activities are subject to change depending on the river water levels.
