Paddleboards can be hired at the local lake at Quillan and the center there offers lessons if you have not had a go before.
There are also various places along the coast that hire boards at reasonable rates – the nearest being Le Barcares at the Grande Plage, around 1 hour 10 minutes away.
If you have your own board, Lac Montbel is a fantastic place to board, with lots of space to paddle to your heart’s content! We have a large garage suitable for storing your board securely, should you need it.
Paddleboards can also be hired at Montbel from the kayak center on the edge of Montbel, Leran side. http://canoe-kayak-ariege.fr/
