The natural setting of Goumois is very well known by kayakers, fishermen and other natural lovers.
This part of the river is the frontier between France and Switzerland. We have brought the necessary infrastructures to this natural water stadium for its good functioning and for the organizing of high level competitions. The beauty of the site has nevertheless been respected.
We have been reprofiling the path of the river bank, laying out and creating embark stages, building a cottage for race logistics, pruning and cleaning of the surrounded forest and making it possible to install audio, video and computer links during competitions.
