You can choose to travel the rapids by canoe, single kayak or double kayak, which you can take out on the water for four to five hours. You can also opt for a mini-raft or a stand-up paddle (SUP) when the water levels are high enough.
Once you’ve passed the first part of the descent – 5 kilometers into your journey – there are rest areas along the sides of the river where you can take breaks and enjoy your surroundings.
