French Alps 2018 paddling trip

Day 12 Lower Guil by Sarah Jones

We had an earliest start at 8am and the get in wasn`t far away. It was going to be a busy day with 3 sections of the river to do. I was told it was an easy paddle with good views but still felt a little nervous getting on the water. We got in at Eygliers Bridge, spitting into 4 groups of 4 or 5 people. I was in the last group with Keith , Sara and Ron. Thy all helped guide me down the river, catching some eddies on the way.

In between the trickier sections we had a chance to admire the views, a high waterfall, Mont Dauphin Fort, tall pillars of conglomerate rock and high cliffs. There were no dramas on the river and after about 7km we arrived at Eygliers Bridge to get out and onto the next section. I did really enjoy this section of the river and to my relief I didn’t swim. It is one river to put on my list for next time.
