In the Heart of Queyras

Château Queyras is the center point of the Queyras Natural Park, a unique place for outdoor enthusiasts.

Our base is located at the put-in of the most beautiful whitewater section of the French Alps. The Guil gorge is a perfect trip for those who are in love with wilderness and inaccessible places with gorgeous landscapes and and never-ending rapids (3 hours of grade 4 rapids)

 

 

The Guil, a river like no other.

At the bottom of the medieval castle, a magic river drags us into its univers. Here, it’s all about playing with elements ! The gorge is perfect for quiet breaks and secret spots only accessible by raft.

It takes about 4 to 5 hours of intense paddling to go through all the sections of the Guil. Meaning a good teamwork where each paddler has to give its best to succeed ! With its 20 km of never ending rapids (grade III-IV-V), the Guil is a gem for whitewater enthusiasts !

In this beautiful and wild place called Queyras, where people like to hike, the descent on the Guil is both a challenge and an inspiring experience through the wilderness of the Guil Canyon. Kayakers come from all over Europe to paddle this famous river and enjoy this place that can only be reached by water.
