The Walk

A Nature moment to share with family or friends: Go down the river by canoe, in complete freedom, to Chancia. You can swim throughout the walk and enjoying (and respecting) its exceptional environment. This course, open to all, does not present great difficulties, the only thing is to know how to swim.
