Or with Canoë Evasion

Canoë Evasion is a team of dynamic and skilled enthusiasts, all state-qualified instructors, led by Joël Bettin, an Olympic medallist in Seoul. They came together in 2004 to offer escape, relaxation and fun in total safety in the Loire Valley.

Canoë Evasion offers:

  • Rental: hire 2-, 3- or 4-seat canoes or single- or two-seat kayaks and paddle independently for half a day, a day, a weekend or a week
  • Guided trips: for families, school parties and clubs, in large Canadian "Rabaska" canoes
  • Outdoor days: for large groups of up to 130 people, clubs, associations, works councils
  • For families: relive the journey of an Indian tribe on board the Rabaska (supervised); become a real Sioux (special service for groups of 6 to 10 children); take your parents on the Loire in a canoe.

Canoë Evasion also works with four partners, all equally passionate about the Loire, to offer customisable day or weekend tourism products.
