Description of the Sports Course 7km

Life vests are well put? 

The helmets adjusted? 

Closed shoes? 

Ok, we take his paddle and we embark for 7 kms downhill canoe kayak. 

The 7 km sports course, from Ganges to Saint Bauzille de Putois will make you discover an atypical environment. 

At first the Herault is narrow, the descent begins with two small rapids. You are refreshed. Now the river widens, the vegetation takes over. The greenery is omnipresent, you sail on a calm water level, a succession of small currents will take you to the lake of the medieval village of Laroque. If you look at the bottom of the river you will see the mother rock. Impressive rock slabs, shaped by the erosion of the current.

Come on, you chose the sports course, we attack the hostilities ...

The crossing of the Laroque slide is approaching, synonymous with the beginning of the rapids. The frame will change, the river is tightened, the vegetation fades, the rock takes over. You arrive at the big S, the most impressive passage of the course. We pass one boat after another, with a lot of speed. After an intimate passage under trees you will arrive at the entrance of the gorges of the Hérault. Open your eyes wide, the show is great. Cliffs, large slabs of rocks that plunge into the river. The perfect place to take a break, swim, have a picnic, sunbathe.

Continuing the descent, the environment changes. There is vegetation and an enlarged river to a final fast before the Suspended Bridge.
