“Great Fun”

Club Saumurois de Canoe Kayak
Reviewed 13 June 2016 via mobile

I've done this several times with different distances. With small kids, the start near Villbernier is best but as ours got older we started in Montsoreau then further up river in La Chapelle sur Loire. Each time has been really enjoyable.

Your are given barrels on each kayak to store your bits, so take a picnic and stop off on one of the islands/ sandbanks for lunch.

You don't need to do much, just let the river push you along at a really gentle pace. It is so peace on the river and you get to watch the wildlife do its thing. We spent fifteen minutes watching a bird of prey curcling then diving into the river before it got lucky.

You will enjoy this day out.

This was such an easy trip to book and do - because of the great staff, turn up, get the kit, get delivered to the launch site in a nice MPV and paddle back along the lovely Loire. So good I took some friends there a week later and I'm heading back again ASAP. No admin/ I.D/passport/ deposit/ training course nonsense. Just a simple form, short instructional- on with the trip !
Great receptionist & driver too!

Used this facility a few weeks back. Booked a 1 hr trip. Were driven upstream and given paddle, life vest and map! Pushed off into water and didn't really need to do anything, just drift downstream with current! Lovely way to see the sights! Very relaxing and great value!

Does what you would expect- staff fine, equipment fine, obviously not a challenging river. We did the three hour option.

Club Saumurois de Canoe Kayak were extremely helpful. We had pre booked for Thursday but it rained so turned up Friday morning instead and were immediately driven to our drop off point, no waiting, just completed the insurance form, were fitted out with life jackets and we were off. Had a wonderful two and a half hours canoeing/drifting down the Loire from Montroseau back to Saumur.
I can highly recommend!
