Walk in Autonomy on the river, discover the Forest gallery and its biodiversity throughout these 14 km by canoe or kayak (for a duration of approximately 3, 3:30 navigation).  

During this course you will have to head to avoid the natural obstacles of this calm but Wild river. At the start of Saugnac, you will be calm, within a lush and verdant nature.  

This large bowl of Eyre will allow you to rejuvenate, before arriving at Belin-Belit, the end of the adventure.

How it works

-Appointment at the Pont de Mesplet (GPS Coordinates: 44.492169,-0.807045), at 8:45 am or 13:30 pm

-Support: Signature of contracts, possible regulations, assignment of equipment,... 

-Shuttle: Depending on the number of participants, either you leave your vehicle and we will take you in charge to get you to the starting point, or you will follow us to the point of departure and we'll go up the drivers to the vehicles after the activity. 

-Briefing: from 10 to 25 minutes depending on your level and knowledge of the environment.  

Topics : Positions on the boat, use of the paddle, steering techniques, rules of safety and respect for the environment, information on places of interest at the landing places. 

Descent: You will embark on the level of the Pont de Saugnac for a descent of 15 km. For almost 11 km you will have no particular landmark, you will be plunged in the midst of the verdant nature of the Leyre and its forest gallery. Only the bridge of the Passage, at the 11th km, will tell you that you are only 3 km away from the arrival. 

Arrival: At the Pont de Mesplet, you will land on the left bank and after a short rinse of the equipment, we load the boats on the trailers. Depending on the case, we will either reassemble the drivers to the cars while you can enjoy the sandy beach located on the right bank, or your vehicles are already there.
