Come and navigate the Golo by canoe, kayak or paddle.

The canoe kayak club of the Golo, CKCG, 5mn from the airport of Poretta, offers you the descent of the Golo.

The Golo is the largest river in Corsica, 185 km, it takes its source on the side of Monte Cinto, also the highest peak in Corsica and winds up to the mouth of the Golo on the Commune of Lucciana.

The descent is from the base of the CKCG located near the church of the Canoninca and the Ecomuseum, this magnificent descent is 4km long and it will take you about 1 hour one way. The possibility of going up the Golo is an equally interesting and fun option in such a magnificent landscape.

During this descent accessible to all you will enjoy landscapes completely different from the coastline that the island of beauty offers. You will reach the mouth of the river where you can swim in the sea on wild beaches that can only be reached by kayak.

This relaxation area where the cool mountain water will refresh you during these summer periods, will certainly give you a sense of well-being far from the hustle and bustle of overcrowded beaches.

You will have the opportunity during this hike to admire the rich biodiversity of the Golo, classified Natura 2000 in this area. It is while walking calmly that you will have the best chance to observe or hear birds or to surprise the Cistude turtle or the Royal Kite and many other species.

 Naturalist days are organised by the canoe kayak club du Golo in collaboration with the Conservatoire Espace Naturel de la Corse in July, August and September.

The CKCG therefore offers you the opportunity to come quietly with your family on this section accessible to all for 1h/2h, half a day or a full day, so many formulas to discover nature with a new eye. A state-qualified instructor will allow you, for those who wish, to benefit from his experience and knowledge on this unique site.
