This summer it’s camping and canoeing!
Summer has finally arrived, and with it that irresistible urge to conquer the crystal waters that border your campsite! On holiday on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, treat yourself to a mini-cruise as you explore the famous calanques, those delightful rocky creeks so special to the area, and dive head first into the turquoise water!
The Atlantic Ocean may be internationally renowned for its surfing, but the Landes also hide innumerable small lakes just perfect for paddling your canoe. Their calm shallow waters are particularly recommended for children enjoying their first time out with a paddle!
Those with a little more experience are certain to opt for a camping stay by the riverside where the panorama takes on a wilder look and the rapids add an extra thrill to a trip down-river in a tandem kayak or canoe. The gorges of the Tarn, Verdon and Hérault offer endless possibilities for canoe trips adapted to all levels, where the exceptional scenery is literally close enough to touch. Flora and fauna that have remained intact, ancestral châteaux and villages steeped in character; it’s hard to find a better way to discover such unsuspected treasures!
