Malgrè les averses, une très belle descente dans une eau fraiche et vive . Un guide patient et très impliqué sachant partager un bon moment . Franchissement surprenant avec de bonnes sensations : ça brasse ....une petite halte pour des sauts de 5 mètres et un passage sur un tracé de kayak . Bref très sympa .

À refaire sans modération
