The best of both worlds

Our Two Centre Adventure is our most popular overseas course.

You'll be amazed at just how much you can pack into one trip and how much your students can learn; how much they can achieve; how much they can grow - in just a week out of school.

With your time split between the Ardèche and the Mediterranean, this course offers even more opportunities to learn new skills in stunning surroundings.

Your students can benefit from the BSAC, BCU and RYA awards and enjoy both the river and the sea.

Take in the dramatic landscape of the Ardèche and enjoy all the watersports activities on the Med.

You’ll get an action-packed experience, with the very best in instruction.

It’s a dream combination.

So why wouldn’t you?

Activities

Two Locations

You can visit either the Ardèche or the Mediterranean first, where you’ll spend around three-and-a-half days at each location, with a three hour coach journey between resorts. Most groups make the most of the transfer day as an excursion opportunity.

Ardèche River Adventure

A two to three day, 19 mile, canoe descent through the spectacular Ardèche Gorge; return to base at the end of each day or experience the optional overnight bivouac.

Mediterranean Watersports

In a full watersports programme, your students will learn to sail a range of craft including catamarans, windsurfers and sit-on kayaks.

Fun-Packed Evenings

The day’s activities may be over, but the fun doesn’t stop there; our centre teams lead evening entertainment sessions to keep everyone busy - including a nightly disco.
