I stumbled on this one quite by accident, and what a stumble it was! Based near the very pretty village of Fontaine de Vaucluse, Kayak Vert runs 1.5 hour canoe trips down the river and then shuttles you back to the start point. There are...More

The river is beautiful, there are no real rapids, so you mainly just go down the river slowly. You need to be very slow and maybe stop sometime to get a 2 hour trip. We where with a small group, luckily, so we could enjoy...More

Very nice trip in itself. Beautiful clear water and nice surroundings. But..., It's only 5km (4,85 exactly), not 8km as mentioned everywhere! Even with 2 small kids and going very slowly, we arrived after 1hr15. Just when you think to take a break, you're finished......More

Very nice and calm river. But kind off a rip off as they told us it was 8km and the stop was already after 5km. We finished after 1hour and didnt rush at all.

This is a great activity, for any age, especially on a hot day. The water is translucent and cold. The trajectory mainly in the shade. The current sufficient, but not dangerous. During the summer holidays, it can get very busy, so best to book the...More

Great break for the kids and the kids at heart from visiting the medieval villages of Provence. And since the water is 13C or 55F even in the heat of summer, when it's 34C or 93F outside, it's also a great break from the heat....More
