Recommended Level 3 Open Boat Guides Ardeche / Tarn / Allier

Post by andy lynn »

Hi All,

I am desperately seeking an english speaking Level 3 open boat (or equivalent) instructor for an 8 day expedition in the Ardeche region.

I am hoping to paddle various sections of the Ardeche, Tarn and Allier. mainly grades 1-3 with a group of approximately 6-8 adults.

Paddling starts on the 26th May and finishes on 2nd June. We are bringing all equipment, so just need a guide!

Are there any british guides in the area who are available for hire and come recommended?

Secondly, are there any english speaking french guides (Must have 'Moneteur B.E' qual!?) that you would recommend?

Thirdly, Could you provide some sort of rough idea of how much i would expect to pay per day?

My french is useless and i am struggling to wade through all the results provided by google, so i would be grateful for any guidance you could provide.

Time is short and i would appreciate any help you could provide.
