8 km :
One strolls in the most wild part of the river. It will be appropriate more particularly to the children, nature lovers and those trying canoeing for the first time. This is the best itinerary for a family group, covering a good varied section of the river with some small rapid stretches along the way. Here you will need to count a paddling time of 2 hours or 4 to 6 hours with stops thrown in.

7 km and 15 km : here we have two itineraries which require a little more hard work on the canoeing side and we recommend a minimum age level of 11 years.

The Thaurac itinerary has a number of "fun" stretches for canoeists, small rapids, downward passages etc. The trip can be covered in around 1.30 or 2.00 hours but leaving aside time for stops or picnics, you should count a total trip time of anything from 3.00 to 5.00 hours.

15 km :
For those seeking a more challenging itinerary, we recommend Adventure. You will need to count a paddling time of around 4 hours. Adding in the stops you can expect a total trip time of 6 to 8 hours in other words "a day on the river" . Adventure is an excellent combination of the sporting challenge and an opportunity to take advantage of the beautiful river scenery.
