Rent a canoe and spend a relaxing day along the water, between sunbathing, swimming, and discovering beautiful landscapes.

You will also pass under the famous "Pont d'Arc" arch. It is the perfect option to take your time, and to enjoy yourself by taking the time to tan, to bathe or have a small picnic! No experience needed, this river section is suitable for everybody. So, take your family or friends and enjoy descending the river at your own pace.
