Have fun and discover canoeing and kayaking

You can go canoeing or kayaking on the Creuse, Anglin, Gartempe  and a bit on the Claise.


The Creuse (downstream Argenton-sur-Creuse)...

...wide river where a lot of castles are reflected in its still waters Beyond the Blanc, it becomes more  of a sunken river with cliffs which anyone can have access to by canoes, (you just need to carry them a bit in some places).


This slow flowing river runs through woods and forests in all peacefulness Downstream from saint-Hilaire-sur-Benaize, it forms like a mill pond of swirl- less current (accessible to all canoe lovers with only a few places when carrying is needed, and a few dam bars).
