Secret Gardon gorges by canoe

The Gardon river, of rare clarity, quietly follows its course between two bluish cliffs from which the incessant song of the cicadas escapes. There, the “natural” South offers a grandiose setting for your vacation. Relax on its shaded beaches. Heaven couldn’t taste better…

Come and descend the Gardon in a canoe and kayak and explore its gorges. Accessible to everyone as long as they know how to swim, it's an opportunity for an exciting outdoor day with family or friends. On the program: canoeing, swimming, picnic at the water's edge, discovery of a classified and protected site.
