“What a fabulous day out for the family”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We had an absolutely great time. Colias down the river under the Pont du Gard. Such a lovely thing to do as a family and such beautiful scenery.
We all loved it.

“Great days activity”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Really enjoyed kayaking with this company - you park your car and get bus down to river to pick up your canoe. We were 5 so had a canoe for 2 and one for 3, it takes about 2hrs 30 mins but lovely to take longer and stop to swim or have picnic en route. Scenery is stunning and river beautiful and fresh, some very small rapids but really good fun and mostly quite shallow ,safe water. Our kids aged 13 and 11 loved it, not too strenuous but very good exercise. At the end you pick up bus back to car so very well organised and enjoyable

“Kayak Vert have all the bases covered.”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We spent a glorious morning paddling downstream from Collias to the landing area 2km on from the Pont du Gard. Allow about two and a half hours cruising time, as you'll want to stop and stretch your legs, as well as taking in the view of the Roman aqueduct before you paddle beneath it. Kayak Vert handled the booking process well, and (praise be) the coach for the return journey arrived exactly at the advertised time. Take a small picnic and enjoy.

“The beauty of the gorges.”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

I did the Collias - La Beaume - Collias parcours with my sister, father, nephew and niece.
It took us about 2 hours to get to the turning point in La Beaume (going upstream).
We had to get out of the canoe several times because the current was too strong.
Going back was more fun but still hard.
The surroundings were amazing, the gorges are hard to reach on foot so it's very quiet there.
Make sure you leave on time and put on plenty of sunscreen.
The girls (and boys) of Kayak Vert were very friendly and helpful.
One of the most beautiful canoe trips I have ever done.
