The river Mayenne, once a busy commercial route is today a paradise for river tourism.

Boat companies along the river offer a variety of rental options. You don’t need a license, just a quick introduction, learn a few signals and safety rules, and you can set off for a relaxing afternoon just messing about on the river.

The lock keepers are always on hand to help you navigate through the locks.
The first one is always a bit tricky, but you’ll soon become a dab hand at it. Soon you’ll be able to discover the beautiful valley of the Mayenne, making stops in the countryside along the way or visiting towns such as Laval, Mayenne and Château-Gontier that have specially designated river stopover points.

Captain for the day and master of the ship, you can take the helm of a boat without a license, for 2 to12 people, available for day or half-day hire.
