Kayaking for Free in Paris? 2 Addresses to Know by Heart!

by admin


June 27, 2012

The practice of water sports is not given to everyone. There are however two places in Paris where it is possible to have fun kayaking, canoeing, rowing or windsurfing. I tested and I tell you.

Do you like water sports but live in the capital? No worries, there are also nautical bases in Paris. And the best thing is that these bases offer free sessions for beginners or experienced. So I let myself be tempted.

I come from the province and I clearly need a change of scenery and nature on weekends. Finding myself in the middle of the Bassin de la Villette has become a bit like a refuge for me.

It’s calm, I’m away from it all, hhhuuummm, and I can relax without spending anything.

To be sure not to be disappointed and not to travel for nothing, I book still always a week in advance either by phone or on site from one session to another. But in general, reservations are only useful for rowing.

Don’t forget the big day: your identity document, proof of address, 2 photos and a 25m swimming certificate (it’s free and it is done in 10min with the lifeguard in all the pools).
