Secret gorges of Gardon by canoe

The river Gardon, of a rare limpidity, follows its course quietly between two blue cliffs from which escapes, incessantly, the song of the cicadas. There, the "natural" South offers a grandiose setting for your vacations. Relax on its shaded beaches. Paradise cannot have a better taste...

Come down the Gardon in a canoe kayak and discover its gorges. Accessible to all as long as you know how to swim, it's an opportunity for an exciting day of outdoor activities with family or friends. On the program, canoeing, swimming, picnic by the water, discovery of a classified and protected site.

The routes and rates for canoe rental and kayak on the Gardon

Whether it is by descending the Gardon from Collias to the Pont du Gard, a majestic Roman aqueduct, under which you glide silently in your canoe or your kayak. Superb ! Or upstream from Collias, when the gorges become more secret, towards the Pont-Saint-Nicolas (12th century) passing by the Baume, a ghost village, where only a few ruins remain (mill, inn, chapel...) but where tenacious memories linger.

Rates are in Euro per person, all taxes included.
These rates include: canoe rental with paddles, vests, one canister per canoe (or kayak).
Special rate for children for a "third or fourth" place in a canoe.
