There has been a bit of interest so it may be worth putting some more details to it.
For those who have not been out there it is very close to paddling heaven! The sun melts the glaciers in the afternoon giving almost guaranteed white water with rivers at whatever grade you fancy paddling. So after a lazy morning mooching around picturesque French towns in stunning surroundings you can then paddle all afternoon before swapping stories in the evening while sipping an endless supply of French wine. You might fancy a gentle float down the grade 2 Durance while looking up at the jaw dropping scenery one afternoon or push yourself on the grade 3, 4 or 5 sections of the Ubaye; there is literally something for everyone.
