The kayak is a paddle-driven boat and an essential water sport. Originally used by the Inuit for hunting and fishing, the kayak has been democratised to become a tool for both beginners and those seeking extreme sensations. The Southern Alps are considered a modern mecca for the world of canoeing and kayaking, with enthusiasts coming from all over Europe to paddle the region's legendary rivers.

This activity, practised on the pond at the Orcières-Merlette leisure centre, will allow you to discover the basics of balance and propulsion in calm waters, in the best conditions for a gentle learning experience. On the programme: games and exercises to help you discover a new talent for paddling and feel the beginnings of the incomparable and addictive sensation of gliding. Ideal for a family outing, this activity is an excellent prelude to a hot dog on the Séveraisse.
