Thank you to all at Canoe Collias for helping to make my 40th Birthday.
Advice on the river which was running fast, comfortable canoes and a quick pick up service. Of course the amazing view of Pont Du Gard is a highlight but this is...More
Highly recommended! What a superb group of people that work here! Everyone is super friendly and always helpful. They really seem to enjoy their work.
Kayaking is reasonably priced and makes for a great day out with the kids or a group of friends.
We arrived with no pre-booking as late as 3pm on a very hot day 38 degrees. Ourselves and our three kids 14, 12 and 11. Cost for 8km run for our 5 x single person kayaks was 87 euros including return lift back to starting...More
The employees were so nice! we were with a group of 8 people. We all rented single kayaks and took a leisurely time kayaking down the river. You can spend as much time as you want -- the company is very accommodating! You can stop...More
A fantastic way to travel to the Pont du Gard. Lovely waterway and a relaxing paddle.
Checking in was simple and a proper safely briefing was given. Owner and staff were friendly and helpful. Private parking was great and we were off down river 10...More
We stayed a couple of days in Avignon and we did a day trip to Collias to rent kayaks to see the Pont du Gard. It is a very unique experience to see this Roman ruins. I contacted Canoe Collias by email to reserve, but...More
I loved kayaking to Pont du Gard, it was one of the favorite things from our trip. I loved specially that this activity is off the beaten path for tourist so it's very calm, relaxing and there are few people around. That means you get...More
The highlight of our trip to Provence, I, along with my wife and twin 9 year old daughters, had the river to ourselves as we paddled down the river and under the aqueduct at Pont du Gard. You will get wet but the boats are...More
I booked this in advance, but it was not necessary, there were plenty of kayaks. We hired 2 kayaks between 4 of us for a 3 hour trip down the Gard river, finishing just past the Pont du Gard. We bought a picnic lunch with...More

This is a bit challenging. The Kayak trip is not really designed to incorporate a visit to the Pont du Gard Site. There is nowhere secure to leave the Kayaks while you visit the site and if the boats disappear the cost would be your responsibility.
The pick up point for the Canoe Collias paddle is about one km beyond the Pont du Gard.
My suggestion is to do the kayak trip and if the water is flowing strongly three hours is certainly possible if you are reasonably fit. Then let Canoe Collias take you back to their base: pick up your car drive back to the Pont du Gard and visit the site where you could easily spend 2 hours.
You can leave the canoe and climb up to have a look but I am not sure if you have to pay to get on the aqueduct and also not sure how secure the canoe will be without your supervision. The canoe company did not mention the... More
You can leave the canoe and climb up to have a look but I am not sure if you have to pay to get on the aqueduct and also not sure how secure the canoe will be without your supervision. The canoe company did not mention the option to park up and have a look, so we did not do that on our trip.
