The Devil’s descent in canoe (unguided)

Contrary to what the name may make you think, the river is rather calm, despite a few rapids, allowing you to paddle along at your own pace. It’s a chance to admire the landscapes, each one different from the last, and to get your fill of fresh air. From the mountains to the river, you can have a picnic and get some sun along the sandy banks.
