From the 3rd to 10th of June 2018 Nomad Kayak club in conjunction with Kayak Campo is running a week’s trip to sample grade 3-4 Spanish Pyrenees whitewater similar to this video.
We’ll be picked up by Kayak Campo from Zaragoza airport where our Ryanair flight from Stansted lands and who’ll provide English speaking guide(s) and transport for 4 days on the rivers Esera, Cinca and Ara, depending on water levels. Accommodation will be half board in a 3 star hotel in the village of Campo and boats are available for rental from Kayak Campo at €32 per day (see rental boat list at the end).
The trips is currently limited to 8 people with 6 places taken so far. Please contact Matt Greenshields as soon as possible if you’re interested.
The total cost will depend on final numbers and whether you hire a boat, however the fixed costs are as approximately as follows, assuming 8 people:
Accommodation: €38.50 per night x 7 nights = €269.50
Airport transfers: €186 / 8 = €23.25 each way x 2 = €46.50
Guiding and transport: €1000 / 8 = €125
Second guide if >=8 people: €500 / 8 = €62.50
Or about €500 (£440) plus airfare
Flights from Stansted to Toulouse are currently £74 return for the trip dates and there’s an extra charge to transport a kayak as ‘sports equipment up to 20kg’ of £50 each way, which needs booking in advance.
Therefore if you take your own boat the total cost is likely to be around £614
A deposit of 30% of the guiding and transport costs is required by Kayak Campo and there will be an additional deposit for the hotel, which we’ll be booking directly.
