Descente de l'Isère en Kayak

The Tony Estanguet of the Alps

Kayaking, like mountain biking or trail running, is a real outdoor sport: fulfilling, jubilant, demanding. As always, La Plagne is only too willing to help. For kayakers, the Isère is undeniably one of the rivers to “tick off”, so why not try it? You can progress from beginner to advanced level step by step, starting on calm water, then on a section of the Isère and finishing in the foaming rapids!

A calm start

When you start kayaking, it’s reassuring to be in calm water: learning to steer the boat, feel the movement of the water and follow a line. Minimum age 6 and able to swim. The sessions are organised on the lake at the Versants d’Aime activity park.
La Plagne Eaux Vives propose des prestations diversifiées pour s’adapter au mieux à vos attentes et à votre niveau de pratique. En kayak rigide, gonflables (1 ou 2 places) ou en stand-up paddle, vous pourrez débuter (libre ou encadré) sur les eaux chaudes du plan d'eau devant notre école de pagaie.

All pumped up

Then comes the moment when you have to plunge into the river! An inflatable kayak, also known as an airboat, has certain advantages: it’s light, unsinkable and more stable, so it’s perfect for beginners who will be able to control it easily and gain the confidence they need to throw themselves into the river. The minimum age is 12, but the most important thing is to have an instructor to supervise you while you learn.
