Allier: de Prades à Langeac

by Thomas Weyn I did this with my ONAK canoe

A trip for a little more advanced users. The river in general flows at a steady pace, but two points are quite a little bit more challenging.

For this river, it is most certainly recommended not to use the V-poles of the ONAK. The river is fast enough not to care about the speed, and the extra stability you gain by doing this is absolutely useful.

Point A

At this point, there is a so called "S-turn". It is feasible, of course, but you'll need to know what you're doing and investigate the turn upfront. Only a few people from our group managed to do this!

Point B

Here, you'll find a "barrage" with a specially crafted pathway. Watch out though, eventhough it is made for canoes, it is a very challenging passage and can be quite dangerous. Portage your canoe if you're not comfident about the situation.
