New regulations on the Lesse !


Strict regulations now govern the practice of kayaking on the Lesse. An initiative of the authorities to protect the beauty and biodiversity of the valley, which we fully support.

Prepare for your visit by carefully reading the regulations on our Environment page and on your booking documents. By this way you will avoid any unpleasant surprises, or worse : a fine as a souvenir of your excursion.


Environment - Protection and regulation




The Lesse is still navigable, unless we display the opposite (a pop-up appears as soon as you arrive on the website) or we publish a warning via our Facebook pages : Dinant Evasion or Descente de la Lesse

The Lesse is a river of low difficulty, so children are normally allowed to embark from the age of 5 if accompanied by adults. They can do kayaking in single-seaters from the age of 12.

This age restriction may vary according to the water level. Always check the conditions of the day in our news section before setting off.

No, it isn’t. However the number of places is limited, so we strongly recommend that you make a booking as we are regularly sold out.

(No prepayment required online - Cancellation is always possible)
