Product Description

Editions du Breil publishes a collection of guides to the navigable canals and rivers in France. They are mainly intended for the boating fratenity but are also useful for cyclists and trekkers who wish to discover the French waterways. Each guide has about 100 pages with detailed maps and tourist and technical information in English, French and German. The contents are constantly updated; each guide being renewed on average every two years.

With this guide you will discover three rivers : the Marne, the Ourcq and the Aisne, all part of the vast Seine river basin.

The Marne is the main tributary of the Seine. Close to Paris it is an urban waterway heavily used for leisure and transport but a few kilometres further upstream it changes character becoming much more peaceful and rural. Above Épernay, it is extended by a series of canals to form "the Marne route", the most attractive waterways itinerary between Paris and Lyon.

The river Ourcq joins the Marne near Lizy after only 80 km. With its canals it forms the navigable network of the city of Paris. Its navigability is limited by the dimensions of its smallest locks but it offers interesting possibilities for boaters in search of an unusual and little frequented waterway right next to the French capital.

The river Aisne is mainly used for transporting cereals and other produce from the region of Soissons towards Paris. It is an attractive river, well equipped for navigation and deserves to be better known to the boating fraternity.

The canalised Aisne and its lateral canal are extended towards the east by the Ardennes Canal.
