There are various ways to practise canyoning, this discipline involves several sports. Either in a canoe a kayak or hiking, beginner or the experienced. There’s sure to be one that suits you !
Canoing is a sport practised by one or two people. One needs to kneel whilst paddling your canoe with a single-blade oar.
The kayak which has seating for one person is practised sitting down and is propelled by means of a double-bladed paddle.
These two rather physical sports allow you to develop arm and abdominal muscles, especially when in turbulent waters. It also very good for developing good balance skills, teamwork and coordination…
Canoeing can also be done in tranquil waters, on a simple hike. It is a very pleasant way to discover a region and the landscapes at your own pace just as the water flows 🙂
Most of our Le French Time campsites propose nautical activities.
