Colombières-Roquebrun

The tour starts upstream of the dam of Colombières. Once you‘ve been given the instructions, enjoy the flat water to practice a bit.
You will then start with a 30 meter long waterslide.
When you see the suspension bridge of Tarassac, get ready. You will be passing the most technical rapids of the tour, “Grille” and “Moulin”. During the next 600 meters, you are decreasing elevation (10 meters).
After having passed the point where the river Jaur joins the Orb, you will reach the departure point of the 15 km tour. From now on, the river is larger and the rapids less technical.
Watch out! Some rapids may surprise you all the same, all the more if there is a water release from the power plant.

Good to know...

We recommend this tour only if you are resistant and know how to steer a canoe / kayak.
Be careful to keep your distance in the rapids !
You will canoe in the Natural Park of the Haut Languedoc.
Please bring back your garbage in the container we lent you.
As you will spend the whole day on the water, don’t forget to take enough to eat and to drink with you. You can buy picnics at our snack bar.
Respect the swimmers and fishermen.
Nearby Tarassac, the river Jaur joins the Orb. In case of a water release from the power plant located on the Jaur, the level of the water may increase at this point.
