Canoing the Cele?

Planning to do the Cele variant in mid September and I've read some threads about actually renting a canoe for a 1/2 day...or kayak? Where would be the best place to "put in" and also get out? I think that could be a fun way to see the river.

I have not done this, but those who do generally start in Marcilhac. There is a company that arranges the trip, rents the canoe or kayak, and transports your luggage to take out point.

While I haven't boated the Cele, I did boat one day of the Rhone. The boat-rental people arrange the entry and exit points, and will transport your bag betwixt. It made a lovely break, especially in this summer heat!

It was incredibly hot when walked the Camino so we did this variation in September so hired a canoe for half a day. Can’t remember where we put in. Yes they carried our bag. Some areas were shallow so you might need to ask about stream levels. Exciting going down the chute at the side of the weir. Enjoy

Canoed from Marcilhac to Cabrerets in May. Costs about Eu25/person. Great fun, especially going over dams (water slides). Ask for details when you arrive at your gîte.

Ok, no canoing possible at the moment. There is not enough water in the Cele river :(
