Where: France, Drome river, Mirabel et Blacons
Europe’s Premier Canoë Rendez-Vous .
After only 3 years, the Open Canoe Festival is today the biggest Rendez-Vous dedicated to canoe lovers from Europe’s four corners. In 2012, 500 participants came from France, UK, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium and the Netherlands.
During 3 days, the lovely village of Mirabel-et-Blacons (located between Lyon and Avignon, 30 Km from Valence and the Rhône Valley) becomes the European Canoe capital. The Festival is organized in a charming 3 stars campsite located on the bank of the Drôme river. All the meals and parties are sheltered under a beautiful giant teepee giving a very special look and atmosphere.
The Festival proposes 3 days of technical and safety clinics, boat tests, manufacturer booths, free tasting of local specialties, concert and parties, prize lotery and of course some fantastic runs on the turquoise waters of the Drome river, which offers more than 30 Km of easy and scenic paddling at the gates of the Provence area.
The 2013 schedule brings a lot of new workshops dedicated to many outdoor themes and activities : outdoor cooking, art of bivouacking, photography, canoe fishing, art of knots, fire camps, kayak clinics for the kids, camping tips and tricks...♦
