11 Exceptional Places for Canoeing and Kayaking in France 🛶

If you're looking for thrills, a communion with nature, and breathtaking landscapes, you've come to the right place. Thanks to Funbooker, discover several destinations to explore by canoe or kayak!

The Dordogne: the Ultimate Canoeing Destination in France

Canoeing on the Dordogne is a must if you love kayaking, whether with family or friends. In Dordogne, you can navigate from various sites, each more beautiful than the last.

We'll highlight kayaking at Eyzies on the Vézère: the Vézère is a tributary of the Garonne located on the border between Dordogne and Corrèze.

You can enjoy numerous routes with varying difficulty levels, ranging from 4 km to 30 km. Departing from Saint-Léon-sur-Vézère, you'll have the chance to admire castles or even the troglodyte city of La-Roque-Saint-Christophe.

The Verdon Gorges: Sail Among Turquoise Waters

The Verdon, a famous river in the French Prealps, is one of the favorite tourist spots for French and foreign tourists alike.

Here, you'll have the chance to paddle among the turquoise waters of Verdon, generally between the towns of Castellane and Esparron-de-Verdon. Several routes are available in different gorges, whether by canoe or kayak: the lower gorges, the Baudinard gorges, or the Grand Canyon of Verdon.

Don't forget your picnic for a relaxing moment on one of the beaches of the Verdon Gorges.

Cassis: Kayaking along the Cap Canaille Coast

If you're visiting Cassis, take the opportunity to enjoy a kayak ride on the Mediterranean Sea from this fishing port.

Departing from a pebble beach, you can admire the famous Cap Canaille, one of the highest cliffs in Provence, within the Calanques National Park. For a peaceful ride, we recommend renting a sea kayak.

Vallon Pont d’Arc and its Famous Pont d’Arc

The Ardèche Gorges is a protected natural area perfect for a day of canoeing and kayaking. Vallon Pont d’Arc, the gateway to these gorges, is one of the most beautiful places in France. It's the most renowned spot for canoeing in Ardèche. You'll even have the chance to pass beneath the majestic Pont d’Arc.

As a side note, Vallon-Pont-d’Arc hosts the International Gorges Marathon, a kayak race with 2000 participants. After your kayaking day, you can visit the Chauvet caves, the oldest decorated cave in the world.

The Loire and its Majestic Castles

Discover the Loire castles during a canoe trip; it's a must. You'll paddle on the Loire, the famous French river that passes through Nantes, starting from Blois to visit the most famous castles in France.

You'll pass under the arches of the famous Château de Chenonceau or see the Royal Château of Amboise from the Loire banks for an extraordinary experience.

Collias and the Famous Pont du Gard

The Pont du Gard is certainly one of the most beautiful monuments in France. With its 3 levels, it overlooks the Gardon River. Departing from Collias, you'll head into the Gardon gorges for a canoe or kayak ride that can be punctuated by swimming.

Here you can admire the flora and fauna of southwestern France, including Bonelli's eagles or beavers. For fishermen, you can try to catch pike or perch!

The Grand Morin in ĂŽle-de-France

The Grand Morin is the most convenient spot for canoeing in Île-de-France. Located in Seine-et-Marne, the Grand Morin is a tributary of the Seine and passes through the village of Crécy-la-Chapelle.

Here you can paddle among the typical landscapes of ĂŽle-de-France and the Marne for a good time with family or friends.

Marseille and the Calanques National Park

One of the greatest assets of the city of Marseille lies in its calanques. During this kayak trip in the bays of Marseille, you can embark on an expedition amidst coves, caves with views of beautiful cliffs.

You can also head around the islands in front of Marseille, with superb spots like the Calanque de la Crine or the Calanques de la Plage de Sable.

The HĂ©rault Gorges and the Legendary Pont du Diable

The HĂ©rault Gorges allow for many aquatic activities, including canoeing or kayaking on the HĂ©rault River.

We particularly recommend the trip from Saint-Guilhem-le-DĂ©sert near the famous Pont du Diable, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Lake Annecy in Haute-Savoie

It's hard to imagine a more beautiful place for a kayak ride on Lake Annecy. Departing from Annecy, you can glide on the clear waters of the lake with magnificent views of the surrounding mountains.

You can especially admire paragliders flying above the Tournette. Lake Annecy has many shores for relaxation breaks!

Kayak Trip to the Ebihens Island

The Emerald Coast lives up to its name with its turquoise waters. Located in northern Brittany, Ebihens Island is an absolutely stunning spot for a kayak ride.

Departing from Lancieux Beach, you'll paddle for about 8 km to reach this archipelago located in front of Saint-Jacut-de-la-Mer. Once on the island, you'll have a superb view of Saint-Malo and the splendid mansions of Saint-Briac, Saint-Lunaire, and Dinard.
