The packraft and airboat, are extraordinary boats to discover and descend the rapids of the Gorges du Verdon. Less stable than rafting, you will be closer to the water and it is you who will steer your boat in the rapids! Depending on water levels, it is recommended to have a first kayak experience (even on a lake!). You have to know how to go straight, turn and stop. We sail on class 2, 3 rapids.
On the Verdon, we have a dam. When it is open, we can do the 8 km route. When it is closed, we go to make the last part of the Gorges. Both courses are with class 2/3 rapids.
