The Drome open Canoe Festival is one of the most popular canoe festivals in Europe.
This year we are offering an event package to get you to the festival.
Dates 27th-30th April 2018
We will be offering an event package including
Boat and paddle rental (from our school fleet)
Pfd / Helmet rental (from our school fleet)
Tent, Foam sleeping mat rental
(Basic Sleeping Bag can be offered for an extra €10)
Hop on a flight from Dublin to Lyon from here we will collect you and transport you and your friends to the festival .
These are our recommended flights with AerLingus from Dublin. If you want to fly from another airport please send us a message to see if it fits logistically.
The weekend is a mix of workshops and free paddling with some of the best coaches and instructors on hand to offer advice and information.
Accommodation for the weekend will be camping or if you prefer chalets can be booked (Extra cost), we will provide tents and foam sleeping mats (sleeping bags can be arranged at €15 extra) we will provide gas stoves and cooking equipment also.
Once the awesomeness has ended and we ‘pry’ you out of your boats and ‘draw’ you back to the bus, before you ‘brace’ in and we make the return ‘voyage’ to Lyon Airport for your flight home.
Festival registration this must be completed online after 1st January HERE (ENGLISH)
This is a great opportunity to head over to the festival with minimum ease.
If you would like to bring your own boat I would advise Aer Lingus may not be so impressed but paddles can be bundled together and brought as a single bag between the group. Otherwise our rental paddles are available to use.
