Weekend adventure - Packrafting the wild
Travel dates to be announced soon
Packrafting the wild Weekend
On our packraft adventure weekend, we are not limited to the land, but we will also discover the wonders of the water! We use the river to cover distance and rest our legs.
Get ready for an adventurous trip through the French forests and over a beautifully winding river.
We leave the well-known forest roads behind and map out our own route with a map and compass.
In addition to the tips and tricks you will receive during the trip, you will be introduced to the comfortable and maneuverable packrafts. This way you can rest your legs, and we also explore the water landscape. It is as if a new world is opening up to you. The quiet river carries you deeper into nature.
Here we camp in all serenity, and enjoy each other's company at the campfire.
We do the camping expedition-wise under a tarp with a bivouac bag. Exciting if it's your first time!

Where are we
Surrounded by French deciduous forest, we find a beautiful winding river. The twists or meanders in this river are a natural phenomenon that causes the bends and exact location of the river to change over time. An idyllic tree along the outside bend one weekend becomes an adventurous obstacle the next.
Here we are really iin the green heart of mother nature. An environment that becomes completely silent at night and where you wake up with the sound of the birds and animals.
Day 1 - in the morning at 8.30 am we gather near Vouziers.
Day 1 and 2 - we walk through the beautiful forests and packraft on the idyllic river.
Day 3 - we packraft the last meandering kilometers.

Do you have more questions? Let us know through the contact form or ask your questions through the chat.
How sporty should I be?
Anyone with a healthy physique can handle the intensity.
How heavy is my backpack?
The packraft weighs only 3 kg and the four-piece paddle 1 kg. We keep your backpack very light by helping you pack. You will receive a Packraft manual and packing list to guide you in your packing process.
Is my backpack large enough for this trip?
Since the packraft you take with you is no bigger than a thick mattress, this is possible. However, we ask to bring a backpack of at least 60 liters. 50 liters is the absolute minimum size, but you will need to compromise on the personal items you can bring on this trip.
