Complete descent (12 km): 

The supervision of the Canoe-Kayak Club Beaurainvillois is strongly recommended for the crossing of Hesdin, which includes some passages for experienced kayakers.

You will cross the city of Charles V, with its 7 bridges and its rich historical heritage: church, fish market, Abbé Prévost's house, old breweries. Information panels provide the public with information as they cross the town. 

The route then continues in a green setting punctuated by eddies providing some sensations to the riders. This section is also equipped with various educational panels that raise awareness of biodiversity and respect for it. 

Boats can be hired from the club.

The river is a shared space. Please respect the recommendations of the French Canoe and Kayak Federation and the National Federation of Fishing in France:

Respect sailing or fishing conditions and times (contact the Beaurainvillois CK Club)

Use the embarkation and disembarkation areas provided for this purpose

Be prepared for meetings between fishers and kayakers: 

- fishers must bring their lines back to the bank

- kayakers must pass by seeking to avoid excessive downtime

- communicate with friendly signals: a simple "hello" can change everything! 

Do not cross private property (unless authorised), croplands or grasslands

Practise your activity with mutual respect for other users and local residents

Practice your activity in compliance with legislation and with respect for aquatic biodiversity

Do not litter (paper, cans, plastic packaging, hooks, metal lures and nylon threads)

Do not throw anything in the water

Shrubs or any other riparian vegetation must be respected and must not be cut or clipped if they interfere with your activity

Important to remember:

Water and Aquatic Environment Act (French LEMA Law) – Art. 1: "Water is part of the nation's common heritage. Its protection, enhancement and the development of its usable resources, in respect for natural balance, are of public interest. The use of water belongs to everyone."
