I spent two summersworking there a few years back, There are endless places you can just rock up and rent canoes and kayaks of sorts.

The only tradtional canoe rental that I know of is my onld boss Tony Pape aka Blue his company website is HERE. About canoeing in the Ardeche it gets pretty hetic in the summer and unless you can convince Blue you can paddle pretty sharp they may be reluctant to rent boats to you.

The desuache (spelling?) which is made by Dag Kayaks just for the local outfitters is more than sport enough for what most people doing the 2/3 day section want.

Any other questions fire away.
