Canoeing and Kayaking on : River Cele

Paddle Point
Corn, France

Easy put in at official launch spot. Small track down to it is not that obvious, but signs on road highlight its approach. We parked up the track at the "village hall" or equivalent, as there was much more space.
There are a couple of small weirs with very easy "V"s of water through them.

Corn, France

A beautiful, serene paddle with a few simple riffles making the grade a 1. This assumes portage of the weir at St Eulalie, which was full of debris.

Paddle Point
Brengues, France

Lovely quiet site by the river, with plenty of shade beneath the willow trees. All the main facilities, including bar and pool, but feels anything but "posh" and is nice and relaxed.

Paddle Point
Sauliac-sur-Célé, France

Beautiful paddling beneath huge limestone cliffs, down simple, sparkling riffles, and under tall, shady trees.
One glissiere is probably best portages as its not in good condition and likely to damage a canoe.

Outstandingly scenic grade 1 paddling in the steep valley of the Cele, below limestone bluffs, with a couple of glissieres, which can lead to wet canoes....or even swims!

Paddle Point
Marcilhac-sur-Célé, France

Simple purpose built put in down track just below bridge on river right.

Paddle Point
Cabrerets, France

Popular launch spot from beach just below the weir and Chateau at Cabrerets, river right.
There is now an excellent glissiere on the weir.
A good finishing point if coming from upstream.

Taking in many of the most spectacular bits of this beautiful river, this is an excellent day paddle with a couple of simple but fun glissieres to run too.

The weir here needs to be either portaged on the right or shot via the glissiere on the left.....great fun.
