The paddle, a sport
To discover Belle-île gently
Paddling is often compared to hiking on water. Indeed, the speed of movement in paddle is around 5km/h which is very close to walking. On a flat ground, the hiker will move at 6 km/h. The SUP is thus an excellent activity to go along the coast of Belle-île and to discover monuments and natural sites. Another advantage of the paddle is that it is a sport that is carried. This means that your body doesn’t have to suffer the impacts and shocks it faces when you run or walk. So after a SUP session, you won’t have to deal with the discomfort that sometimes follows your trail workouts, or your days of hiking.
