White water rafting:These activities are organised by qualified professionals and are at your own risk
Negotiating rapids in my own boat. The best time is early summer when the rivers are swollen by melting snow water, but at any time of the summer it’s still a fun activity and the people who run these activities are always friendly and highly professional. Alll the equipment is provided and there are shower and changing facilities and even limited refeshments on site.
Canoe and Kayak adventures
The Pyrenees has a multitude of rivers ideal for kayaking and canoeing. Amongst spectacular scenery, a ride down the Gave d’Oloron, Gave de Pau, Ariege or Garonne is always exhilarating, if not challenging.
Canyon river swimming
There are also canyons to explore were you can skinny dip in the pools and slide down some of the waterfalls.
