Canoe and kayak rentals,

Initiations, courses and improvements,

Descents with canoeing, kayaking and rafting.


From 8 to 77 years old, you just have to know how to swim!

We offer you an exceptional discovery of the river Drôme, among the cleanest and wildest in Europe. Renting a canoe or a kayak at Yvan's means benefiting, in addition to a boat and modern and adapted equipment, from the welcome and advice of the most experienced certified instructor of the Drôme river.
Going down is good, but learning is better. Yvan Loisirs is also a real school with initiations, advanced courses, and accompanied descents, for individuals and groups, from 7 to 77 years old, for all levels.
