We invested a lot of effort and a lot of money, but little by little, we took the camping forward at a time when the internet was starting to become pretty powerful.
The competition was tightening.
Until about fifteen years ago a local company began offering canoe descents along the Sella River.
Yes, the wonderful river that flowed right in front of our campsite!
We were worried about the possible overcrowding of our rural environment but, we once we saw how happy customers arrived after having made the descent we decided to include it in our list of recommended activities.
With time, we began to give it some thought.
Why depend on other suppliers when we have a pier and direct access to the river Sella ourselves?
Would not it be more logical for us to offer this activity when we already have all the necessary facilities?
And so it was that one fine day, we made a decision that we have never regretted.
That day we bought a van, a trailer, 20 canoes and all the equipment our new clients would need: vests, watertight boats, paddles …
And that day we created our new business: Canoas La Chalana
We were so nervous!
