We take the upmost care and pride in the quality of the equipment we offer you.

Quality equipment which is maintained, checked and replaced regularly.

We favour shorter travel where possible and choose suppliers who are close by and equipment primarily made in France:

Canoes and kayaks are made by Rotomod in Ardèche (Canoë France is actively involved in developing professional models)

  • Specially adapted starting spots to allow you to launch easily while exploring the Chassezac
  • CCC workshop undertakes maintenance and repair work to keep the equipment in tip top condition at all times.

Life jackets: (a model crated exclusively for Canoë France made in the Lot region of France by MACK)

  • especially adapted for your height and shape.
  • designed especially with children in mind.
  • washed and disinfected after every use
  • Paddles are made exclusively for Canoë France, and made in Charente par Egalis with recycled aluminium.

Our transport vehicles are kept well maintained and clean, for your comfort.

More than 50% of our vehicles are Euro 6 and Crit’air 1 compliant, lowering our carbon footprint.

Eco-responsable avec Canoë France

With members of the “Canoë France”, every year we reflect and introduce solutions to transform the way we work and minimise the impact of our activities:

– Optimising our shuttle services and streamlining transport

– recycling equipment

Selling our equipment so it can continue to be used
Recycling our life jacket foam

“Canoë France” is patron is the Fab Unit which runs a project to integrate our out of service canoes into the recycling industry.
– participation in annual river bank clean-up campaigns.

– Information on the flora and fauna that is found in the Cassezac Gorges and the Païolive Woods. (Signs at the beginning of the descent, organisation of guided descents with river guides)

– Encouraging good practice

  • Selective sorting area at the base
  • Pocket ashtrays offered at the beginning of the descent, and cigarette ends collected in this way are recycled by Mégo
  • an awareness-raising sign about sun cream and its effect on the environment
  • A freshwater fountain available for filling reusable water bottles rather than disposable plastic bottle
  • a Canoë France app with details about the natural and historical heritage along your descent, along with further information and stories.
