The different stretches

9KM - 3h30 / Le Poujol -> Tarassac
A course that is both fun and progressive. The Orb flows between gravel pits and sandy beaches. The river accelerates after a little after the rapids of Colombières on Orb.

Family descent. Open your eyes, you will certainly be able to observe gray herons & black kites who offer themselves in spectacle above the river.
10KM - 3h30 / Tarassac -> Ceps
You leave the base of Tarassac, certainly the beginning is sporty, but it is to get into the bath directly! The fast mill of Tarassac will offer you nice surprises. The suite is quieter but very friendly; between each fast you will discover beautiful beaches for sunbathing to enjoy the sun and the river. Along the water you will cross the authentic villages of Vieussan and Ceps. To add some sensations, the cliffs of Camps will allow you to make some well deserved dives. A real cocktail of beautiful landscapes to enjoy your descent.
