In Aveyron just like in Tarn, the white waters are great for canoeing: accompanied descents give you the opportunity to pass rapids in complete safety.
The Lévézou Lakes are quiet, calm ideal areas for learning to canoe or for family outings. The Pareloup Lake is especially pleasant to explore: its multiple meanders, islands and cut shorelines provide a vast and varied terrain to navigate. You can go on long excursions there or simply get used to the discipline. We also practice the unusual activity of canoe sailing.
Several routes adapted to all ages (adults, children) and all levels (initiated or occasional sportsmen) are available from Saint-Antonin to enjoy the joys of canoeing with family or friends in the Aveyron gorges. If you choose the 10 km route, you will discover during your navigation the bridge of Bône, the cliff of Capuchins, the Rock of Manjocarn, the Jump of the Wolf and the mill of Cazals. Want to paddle more? Choose the 17 km descent and continue to Penne-sur-Tarn. You can also take a 7 km canoe trip from Cazals (landing in Penne-sur-Tarn).
The Gorges du Tarn are a real paradise for whitewater sports such as canoeing, an outdoor activity that combines sport and the discovery of magnificent landscapes with the whole family during a stay in Aveyron. Several companies offer canoe and kayak trips for beginners and advanced riders of 8, 11, 13, 17 and up to 32 km (half a day to two days). Depending on the route chosen, the start can take place from the Malène bridge, Saint-Chély-du-Tarn, Sainte-Enimie or near Montbrun. You will sail along the river admiring the cliffs and geological formations sculpted by erosion. At the end of your trip, you will be amazed by your visit to the Canyon des Détroits and the Cirque de Baumes.
