Owner description: Discover or rediscover the canoe on Sorgue of the 3rd weekend of April at the end of October! It is of the resurgence of Fountain of Vaucluse where famous Sorgue in the color water emerald so crystal clear and clear pours having been the source of inspiration of numerous poets for centuries when they are called Pétrarque or René Char … Come to discover in family, this beautiful river in our company, a warm welcome is reserved for you. Of Fountaine de Vaucluse until Isle sur la Sorgue, KAYAK VERT began to make you taste the enjoyments of the canoeing and proposes you a descent of Sorgue of 8 km.

This was the highlight of our week in Provence, with friendly staff greeting you and both French and English safety instructors. We headed off in our Kayak and passed beautiful fields, woodland and even a camping site along the way. The journey takes an hour and a half, and you get close to wildlife: we saw a water vole and Kingfisher. At the end, you are taken back to where you started via coach: a very picturesque trip.

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 set up is well organized, but they can be victims of their success, and it can be VERY busy.

Our campsite recommended this place to us and it was amazing. They picked us up and took us to our kayaks. We spent approximately 2 hours on the water. It was so peaceful and chilled. The Kayak Vert signs are easy to follow down the river so you don't get lost and there are people to help you over the locks.
The finishing point was right next to our campsite so we didn't even have to travel when it was over!
Thoroughly recommend for a peaceful spot of kayaking.

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. The river is tree lined on both sides so there is always shade to be found. There are 3 or 4 little sections of rapids that are fun for the kids. Kayak Vert let's you go at your own pace (1:30 if you rush, 2h if you laze) so consider stopping 2/3 of the way where there is an overhanging tree with a Tarzan rope; and if you are feeling adventurous, you can climb the tree and jump into the frigid water from 20 feet up.

My wife and I stumbled across this town by accident and we are so very thankful that we did! La Sorgue is the most beautiful river we have ever seen! Water fresh off the French Alps, an abundance of wildlife and scenery fit for a postcard!

Kayaking down La Sorgue was awesome. The water is so pure and crystal clear. We could see the otters, the fish and other wildlife beneath the surface of the water.

Most of the journey was quiet and peaceful, although we did encounter a large group of youths who were quite loud and who were smoking, so we paddled ahead of them so that we could have our own space on the water.

I strongly recommend kayaking with Vert Canoe for an awesome experience.
