Planning an educational outing in Nantes, but you have already visited the Dukes of Brittany’s Castle?
You have already seen the exhibitions in the LU Tower and the Nantes Art Museum.
Learn more about Nantes’ cultural heritage while sailing on the Rivers Erdre and Sèvre Nantaise!

Discover the châteaux in the Nantes area by boat

This is an educational outing with a difference! On board an electric boat or on a kayak-canoe, explore Nantes’ rich historical, architectural, and environmental heritage. Whether you’re with family, friends, your better half or on a date with your sweetheart, it’s the ideal activity to expand the mind without getting bored!

Sailing from our boat hire base on the île de Versailles, you can admire many ”châteaux” and manor houses along the River Erdre: the Château de l’Eraudière, the Château de la Desnerie, de la Poterie, de Nay…

There are many châteaux to marvel at, some of which are listed  historical monuments. You will be able to compare the different architectural styles of these grand dwellings built between the 15th and the 19th century.

The château de la Frémoire and the Chaussée des Moines causeway dam can be seen from our Vertou base, on the Sèvre Nantaise river!

A biology field lesson

If life sciences are more your cup of tea than history, explore the Erdre marshes and discover the Plaine de Mazerolles. Better than learning from books, watch thousands of anatidae (geese, swans, ducks…) in their natural habitat, right in the heart of a migration route!

These wetlands are also home to a dozen or so protected plants, among over 200 plant species, and many kinds of insects. All you have to do is rent an electric boat from our base in Sucé-sur-Erdre to discover this amazing site!
