Canoeing Holidays

Paddle through the gentle waters of Lake Garda or take in the beauty of scenic mountains close to a lake.

Choose from a fantastic selection of parcs with private lakes, seaside locations or turquoise waters nearby such as the Gorges Du Verdon, or even take a organised canoe trip at parcs such as Le Moulin de Paulhiac, Dordogne.

Regions perfect for Canoeing include the Dordogne where canoeing is a very popular way to explore the river and gorges here, with many organized excursions to choose from.

The Ardèche

The Ardèche is most famous for the wild river that runs through its limestone terrain and perhaps the most beautiful gorges in France. Canoeing and white water rafting are incredibly popular here, and many visitors will hire boats or join organised trips at Vallon Pont d’Arc, in order to enjoy the best possible view of the magnificent Pont d’Arc, a natural limestone bridge that spans the river near the head of the gorge.
