Argeles-sur-Mer is a real treasure trove when it comes to outdoor activities, that you can enjoy throughout the year. While we thoroughly recommend following the foothills below the Tour de la Massane, why not have a change of scene by venturing out in a sea kayak towards the end of the day.
There are different types of kayaks available including doubles and singles, to suit all ages and all levels.
After choosing your boat, put on your lifejacket and park your paddle in the sand. Your instructor and coach will explain some rowing basics, (Or at least how to glide on the water) and how to maximise your paddle movements. They’ll also tell you how to maintain the right posture so you don’t get unnecessarily tired so you can make the most of your experience and enjoy the view!
Getting into the water
You’re ready, you’re now at the crucial point where you can cool off. With paddle in hand and the kayak in the other, all you have to do is drag the boat down to the water, feeling like the Maori, set to conquer new horizons. As you take on the waves, you’ll start your first paddle strokes which you easily get to grips with.
