Paddle in the heart of the Loire region during a 15 km kayak & canoe hire on the Loire River. This river, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is ideal for adults and children from 5 years old in search of peace, quiet and discovery. Alone on your kayak or with several people on your canoe (up to 4 people), this descent is perfect for nature lovers who want to recharge their batteries.

Tour programme
- Preparation:
We will meet you at the base 10 minutes before the reserved time. Free car park is available on site. Then the small group will take the shuttle bus for a 25-minute ride to the starting point of the descent. Once there, we will provide you with all the necessary equipment, and give you a short introduction to the activity.
- Tour:
You can start paddling your kayak or canoe in the direction of the stream, and why not stop at a beach by the water. You might even see beavers and freshwater fish!
- Return:
After 3 hours and 15 minutes of descent, you will arrive at the base, where you can enjoy the park and the restaurant.

Recommendations for 15km Kayak & Canoe Hire on the Loire River - Adventure Tour

RUTHAugust 18, 2022verified1 day (4.5 hours/day)

Friendly organiser, suitable equipment, life jacket provided and dry container to put all our belongings in. There was no rush to the adventure and you can choose whether to launch from the start then be collected further downstream, or get a lift upstream and meander along the river back to the start. Our 'instructor' was must friendly and spoke enough English for us to be able to understand the action plan. The scenery was plesant and very the water very serene and calm all the way along, with only the passing under one bridge mildly choopy. We cruised with a 6 year old and an 11 year old, in 2 kayaks, stopping at a beach along the way for our picnic. A very enjoyable and memorable day. You don't have an instructor with you throughout the day - you go along on your own down the river.
