Trip overview

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 in 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.

The trip

  • 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.

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.
