Fishing, sightseeing, or just messing about in boats!

Traditional wooden Loire river boats still sail in Anjou, and invite you aboard! For an unforgettable excursion, learn the ropes with a fisherman and camp on a river island... More modern craft on the Loire offer guided tours too.

Or you can explore Anjou’s rich network of rivers unguided, in a canoe or kayak. The freedom of a houseboat is ideal for a leisurely appreciation of quaint villages and riverside mansions on the Sarthe, the Maine, the Oudon and the Mayenne. You don’t even need a permit to hire one!

Watersport enthusiasts can also go sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and kayaking on Anger’s Lac de Maine or Cholet’s Lac Ribou.
