— With Ardennes Nautisme our partner in Ardennes

With its 650 km of cruising waterways, the Champagne Ardennes region offers tremendous variety.

When cruising your Pénichette® from Pont-à-Bar and breathing in the pure country air, you will understand why the region is considered as one the green lungs of Europe.

Home of wild boar, roe-deer and some of France’s rarest birds, the Ardennes forests also shelter in their protected wetlands such rarities as orchids. During your boating holiday, you will be charmed by the Meuse as it twists and loops its way to Charleville- Mezières.

Beyond, deeper into the Ardennes, there are delightful towns to discover such as Fumay and Givet, known for their sausages.
