French Alps River Skills

This Rock the Boat Alpine Adventure will take you to the heart of the beautiful French Alps. We will base ourselves around Briançon, which is in the Hautes-Alpes department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region in Southeastern France. At an altitude of 1,326 metres, it is the highest city in France. The perfect location to find crystal clear Alpine water and some of the best, continuous White Water Europe has to offer, our team of experienced coaches will help you develop and progress your Alpine White Water Kayaking skills.

Although being part of a group, this trip is tailored to suit you as individuals on and off the water.

Remember this is a holiday! You’ll have as much time as you need to enjoy the gorgeous, mountainous scenery and local alpine towns.

Once off the river, there will be the opportunity to take advantage of the coaches who will be more than happy to share their knowledge and help you to experience more of the local areas before we dine each evening.

Meals are not included in this package so it’s down to you as individuals or as a group to organise your meals. You’ll have a kitchen in your accommodation as well as a dining area so home cooked dinners are always an option. It’s been our experience that evening dinners as a team are always a treat and are a great way to unwind after unforgettable day on the water.

To make your travel even easier, our team are happy to take your boat and paddle over so you can fly in, hire a car and relax knowing your own boat is ready for you on arrival. (Subject to dropping off at RTBA HQ in Dorking, Surrey).
