Canoeing on the Loire river

From the town of Amboise you will be transported in an old bright yellow school bus for a canoeing trip. You can choose the distance to paddle back from. We had a lovely canoe with a padded back, excellent paddles and a waterproof container for valuables. We had a picnic on one of the beautiful little islands in the Loire river: Île de la Chaumine. We experienced some great rapids and enjoyed nature around us. A river to fall in love with.
