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.

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 the silence. When it's crouded, I wouldn't recommend going really. The staff is pretty depressing, like they don't like there jobs. Specially the girl at the counter. We think it is very expensive, 10 euro should be the right price. But, it is a nice trip.

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... very disappointing and untruthful.

Staff was very unfriendly at the desk (Miss M.) and unhelpful during the trip (not helping the kids/wife at all to cross the "barrage").

Overall: Don't lie, be friendly, give all info and this is a 5* experience. Now... rip-off for 45€, sorry.

We really enjoyed the kayak trip with our two daughters (ages 10 and 7). The river was gorgeous, the scenery beautiful. I would strongly recommend reservations and getting there early in the morning. Parking along the road was very chaotic. They are cash only. It was a lovely, shady route and our kids loved it.

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 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.
