After an explanation of how the Packraft works, we embark and paddle on Lake Castillon. We sail on a part of the lake very little frequented with in landscapes incredible cliffs. We cross the lake to reach coves inaccessible from the road. We take advantage of these small beaches to swim and enjoy this magical place before returning to the port of the small village.
At the end, we arrive in a small beach where we finish the packraft. We deflate the boat. We start a small hike of 20 min to return to the first village where we start !
