Through the marsh, on the way to Saint Gilles...

Leaving from Givrand, you will paddle (with your family or your friends) through the marsh to reach Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie. The river you will sail on is called the Jaunay : a calm river without flow, making your ride safe and accessible to everyone !

The ride will lead you through various landscapes within a protected area (Natura 2000). You will sail in the heart of the marsh, crossing forests and dunes, to eventually reach a seaside resort. You will also have the opportunity to explore the city of Saint Gilles Croix de Vie: marketplaces, beaches, port, shopping, restaurants and so on.

For those of adventurous spirit, we also offer overnight excursions (in July and August).
Our facilities include free car park, a picnic area and toilets. And after your excursion, you’ll also be able to buy refreshments (drinks, ice creams).
