We loved this kayaking experience and would strongly recommend it. We did not book and were lucky that they could fit us in as they were very busy (August) so it would be best to book in advance. Stunning scenery and very pleasant kayaking with some gentle 'rapids', although we are pretty useless and still managed to go backwards at on point. Facilities are not great. We thought there might be toilets and a cafe but there is just a car park and you put your gear in a watertight container to take with you. Efficient bus service back to base at the end. Overall, great fun and a memorable day!

Montana seems to be one of the best choices, with good service and a fabulous 8km route from Ganges to Saint Bauzille. Was challenging, yet suitable for families with older children, with many rapids and the 'slide' at Laroque was great fun. Highly recommended!

We did the 15 km trip first day after a closure period because the water had been too high. It was a great trip and a beautiful area, but we woud like to warn that there is one part during the first 7km that is very rough with high water and therefore rather dangerous. It may be fine in summer, but now there was a lot of water pushing through the small canyon. We flipped over in the rough rapid, we just managed to get to the shore but be very careful when going with children. Behind us, a group accompanied with trainers took out the canoes on that part.

It would have been good if we were warned before for that part. Although the people from Montana were nice, we did not get good instructions before considering the speed and roughness of the water. Nevertheless, the trip was great, the second part (9 km) was much easier, but please be aware of the rapids in the first part of the 15km and ask for good instructions for heavy rapids.
