Le Poujol - Roquebrun | 2 days | 25 km | Cool trip

From 64,00

Day 1 : Poujol-sur-Orb - Tarassac=>10km/ 3 to 4h on the water

Meeting point in Roquebrun. On the way up to Le Poujol-sur-Orb, our shuttle stops at Tarassac to drop off your car with your bivouac gear. Once the car has been dropped off, our shuttle will take you up to the start of Le Poujol. Thus, the navigation is facilitated, you leave with the strict minimum.

You navigate gradually between gravel pits and sandy beaches. TheOrb takes its time, at least at the beginning. Arrival at the Colombières dam, at the foot of the Caroux, first adrenaline sensations, with a 30 meters slide!

4 kilometres later, you will see the blue and yellow suspension bridge of Tarassac, you will arrive on the most manoeuvrable rapids. Be careful when passing the rapids of the "grille" and the "moulin", you will lose 10 metres of height difference.

300m further on, the rapid of the campsite on the right bank could surprise you, on the left bank watch out for the bathers on the beach of the Tarassac campsite.

Overnight stay
Those who have chosen to spend the night at this campsite stop here (take your paddles and waistcoats back to your tent).
For those who go to the bivouac, there is still 200m to go, on the right bank you will pass the mouth of the Jaur, it is from the Jaur that the EDF releases. 100m after on the left the beach of Tarassac where you bivouac.

Day 2 : Tarassac - Roquebrun =>15km/ 5h on the water

On the second day, we advise you to be in the water by 9 a.m. at the latest, so you can enjoy the awakening nature.

After a 200 meter stretch of water, the river splits, go through the left rapid, on the right the rapid may be under water in case of an EDF release... and you will finish on foot.

3 kilometers after your departure, you pass under the submersible bridge of Drouille. The mountainous landscapes, with large green trees, give way to vineyards and olive trees, but the course of theOrb will be punctuated by rapids.

2 kilometres later you cross the village of Vieussan, passing under its bridge and then its footbridge. On the left bank, you will notice the water level scale which indicates its submersibility at a height of 5 metres of water, i.e. 600m3/s. Impressive, isn't it?

You will admire the Gorges de Vieussan with the cliffs of Camps, climbing site and inhabited by beautiful raptors. Be careful to avoid the rock, follow the signs. At the exit of the Gorges, be careful with the left rapid, possibility of tie, you will see on the right bank the field of Razégue, breeding of goats respect the herds.

2km later you arrive at the village of Ceps with a first rapid to negotiate under the bridge on the left. The course becomes more bucolic but a few rapids could surprise you, the Aqualand rapid and the S rapid followed by the hole rapid and its washout!

You will then arrive in Roquebrun. When you arrive at our base, we will take you back to Tarassac to collect your car and your camping gear. Keep your rubbish bins which you can deposit on arrival in our selective sorting.
