Canoe Trip : Thursday September 5th : Salles to Biganos Port

We are planning an all day trip, covering 20km from Salles to Biganos port, with lunch half way at Mios. Not so much paddling is required as the flow of the river, plus the ebb tide carries us most of the way, through lovely scenery and nature, especially birds. We shall meet at the lovely small leisure port of Biganos at 10am. There we leave our cars and board a minibus which takes us to Salles. After a safety and canoeing briefing and after packing our picnics in waterproof containers, we set off downstream to our riverside lunch rendez-vous in Mios. There is the opportunity to opt out there if anyone has had enough ! Otherwise, we expect to be back at our cars by 5pm.
