About the activity

Rent a canoe and enjoy a family-friendly excursion in calm water or whitewater in the Gave d'Oloron from Sorde-l'Abbaye!

Hire a canoe and enjoy a family excursion on the Gave d'Oloron from Sorde-l'Abbaye!

With friends or family, explore the Gave d'Oloron in the Pyrenees on a calm water canoe trip of about 1 hour 45 minutes or a white water trip of 1 hour 30 minutes or the whole day.

The Gave d'Oloron is a river formed in Oloron-Sainte-Marie by the confluence of the Gaves d'Aspe and Ossau. It flows for 80 km and joins the Gave de Pau upstream of Peyrehoarde, forming together the "Gaves réunis", 149.1 km long.

For the white water descent, you will be transported to the starting point and will take advantage of some rapids and white pebble beaches to picnic and swim. You will also discover the "little Amazon" on the final part of the course.

On the site, the food truck "le canotier" is set up on the banks of the Gave in a quiet area. It offers fast food at lunchtime and in the evening during the opening period of the canoe base.

A picnic area and a free car park are at your disposal.

Really good fun

Für die 9 km haben wir lediglich 2 Stunden benötigt. Der Fluss ist sehr ruhig und von Wildwasser kann gar keine Rede sein. Die Strecke wäre langweilig wenn es nicht einen Streckenabschnitt "Little Amazonas" gegeben hätte. Dieser sehr schmale Seitenarm neben einer Insel ist wunderschön, glasklares Wasser und vollkommen zugewachsen. Dafür hat es sich schon gelohnt.

Parfait, bien organisé. Seul bémol, un peu d aide pour soulever les canoës très lourds pour la mise à l eau .

Excellent rapport qualité prix avec une bonne communication. Dommage qu’il y ait si peu de rapides sur le parcours.
