12 km canoe trip

3h paddling time Fun Perfect for the family



A little longer than the 8km trip, while remaining very easy, the 12km tour is ideal for families with children or friends.
The first 4 kilometers of this descent take place on very calm waters, interspersed with 4 slides specially adapted, for the biggest pleasure of everyone! About one hour after passing the last slide, you will reach the majestic Pont d’Arc, a magnificent swimming area located about 30 minutes away from the finish line.
