The Pont d’arc – descent 8 km


The 8 km canoe kayak course is the ideal little trip with family and friends!

This course will take you about 1h30 of paddling time but you have the canoes as long as you want. The goal is to make this descent quietly while taking advantage of the various beaches, in particular the magnificent Pont d´Arc beach.

Whether it is in the morning in the cool, at noon with a picnic or even in the afternoon under the summer sun, this course will be an excellent moment even for the less athletic.

At a jointly agreed time, our teams will pick you up at the end of the course to bring you back to the starting point where you left your vehicles.
