Malgrès de la pluie sur le début du parcours, nous nous sommes vraiment bien amusés. Les paysages sont suberbes. Une activité vraiment agréable à faire (et à refaire) entre amis ou en famille.

Paysage superbe et descente pleine de surprise et d’arrêt possible sur les berges, pleins de gens fun croisés sur d’autres embarcations

Très agréable, mais l activité est un peu trop calme pour des jeunes qui ont l habitude de faire du sport.
