Robson is excited to team up with Darren Joy from Fluid Skills to offer a week of Whitewater Canoeing in the Southern French Alps. Enjoy fantastic scenery and incredible rivers with us and stay in our lovely self catering apartments.
The week is aimed at open canoeists who are looking to be led and coached on grade two and three. We will look at improving your skills and confidence as we explore the best of the Ecrin classics.
During the week as well as paddling a number of different rivers we will look at the following:
- River Paddling Techniques for Alpine Water
- Tactics to Safely Leave Grade II Behind
- Reading the River and Decision Making
- Group Paddling Strategies
- How to Choose your Favourite Ice Cream Flavour
Is It For Me?
This is suitable for paddlers who are comfortable paddling as part of a group on grade II rivers and want to improve their skills & push their abilities whilst under the watchful eye of expert coaches.
Many people choose to drive and take their own boats and equipment but we can make things easier by supplying a boat for the trip or by taking your boat there for you. This allows you to fly over and hire a car in country.
