April 13 / 9 h 00 min - April 14 / 2 h 00 min

On the weekend of April 13 and 14, 2024the USMB sports department is organizing a kayaking course on Lac du Bourget.

A two-day self-guided tour, with a night's camping on the water's edge. Carbon offsetting on the return journey will be achieved by collecting waste along the river.


Day 1: Saturday 13/04

Kayak loading and equipment logistics. Departure from Le Bourget beach, for the lake crossing, cruising along the wild coast and the Lamartine and Raphaël caves. Picnic break at the foot of Hautecombe Abbey. The afternoon brings a change of scenery, as we finish crossing the lake and reach our campsite via the SaviÚres canal. Check-in and overnight at Camping des Iles in Chanaz.

Day 2: Sunday 14/04

Short hike to discover the small port village of Chanaz, and climb to the belvedere. Uninstall camp and load kayaks, to continue the itinerary through the launes and meanders of the Haut RhĂŽne, and the Balme gorges. Return shuttle at the end of the day and pack up.


Meals: Everyone is responsible for their own meals during the trip. Lunch will be taken on the river. Provide snacks for the day. Everyone will be looking for foods that require as little disposable packaging as possible.

Equipment: kayak equipment provided.

Bring your own equipment: camping gear, sleeping bag and steward's kit, clothes for sailing and for the evening, meals, headlamp, hiking boots, sunglasses, cream...
