For some, pleasure means paddling, synonymous with freedom out in mid-river. Throughout the season, canoeing or kayaking tours are available, departing from or arriving in La Charité-sur-Loire with professional instructors. Half-day, full day and even several days for those who want to take the adventure a little further. On the menu, camping on the islands and a night under the stars*…
Professional rental companies offer their services, guide and supervise you.
* Camping banned in the Loire Valley Nature Reserve area.
Fancy a short boat ride along the Loire? No problem, take a seat aboard a traditional barge to discover the secrets of the river. Immediate boarding aboard the Mignonette in La Charité or the Raboliot in Saint-Satur.
Then the Loire’s side channel 2 km from La Charité is what you want. After a short stop at the port of La Chapelle-Montlinard and its 170 m of wharfs, equipped with a water point and electric posts, you can set foot ashore, go to the banks of the Loire from the Cité du Mot to La Charité-sur-Loire, and possibly visit its Priory.
