Cruise on the Ourcq Canal between Paris and Trilbardou

One day cruise the discovery of the Briard countryside Canal from Paris to Trilbardou

Price : 64.00€ / pers BUY

Description of the cruise

Embark at Bassin de la Villette for a timeless day and discover the Ourcq canal, the smallest navigable canal in France!

You will leave the city and its buildings in order to navigate on this wonderful canalized river which supplied Paris with drinkable water.

It will be a true change of style to pass by romantic stone bridges and to admire the lines of poplars that reflect in the water.

Strollers, fishermen and cyclists will greet you on your way. Then you will sail back up the largest part of the canal until you arrive at the lock of Sevran where begins the smallest part of the canal.

At that moment, you will cross the woods of Sevran, also called the parc de la Poudrerie, where the national gunpowder factory was established in the XIXth century. Across this canal, created on the initiative of Napoleon in order to provide drinkable water to Parisians, you will trace back the History...

Once you will have passed the swing bridge, you will arrive at the Marina of Claye-Souilly, where you will stop for lunch at a restaurant. After lunch, a horse will draw the boat, just like the boatmen did in the XIXth century.

Then the trip will continue – going through the lock of Fresnes, the city of Charmentray and finally Trilbardou where is located the elevator factory which supplies with water the canals via the Marne River.
