What people say

A very professional and friendly welcome…Magnificent descent on the Sorgue with sumptuous landscapes…the water is 13 degrees but given the heat it’s a pleasure. 👍🏻

Laurent B.

A magnificent walk on the Sorgue. Quiet, calm course. A few emotional passages but very well supervised by the two guides who steer the canoe so that we are well in front of the descent.

Delphine J.

An experience I highly recommend! We love to go with our family 😊 Enjoy a magnificent stroll on the Sorgue, all in a green setting.
