Vélo en famille au fil de l'eau

Along the Voie Bleue

As a family

Are you looking for a family adventure, for some quality time together, away from the daily routine, an activity to do together and bring you closer?

Are you dreaming of a bike ride, with the feeling of freedom on a safe path that is suitable for everyone? Look no further than the Voie Bleue alongside the Saône, a path that is forbidden for cars and other motorised vehicles!

Your little ones will be able to zigzag along the path in complete safety, enjoy the slight uphill and downhill sections, and the landscapes that vary from small charming towns, to vineyards, meadows and the river.

The Loire side canal

As a family

The route begins in Decize, where the canal, river and cycle paths all meet.

This fairly easy, safe path will take you past some great views, an escapade through the town (Nevers) and some opportunities to taste local delights on the water's edge. Let's go!

Itineraries with lots of new discoveries

A bike ride is nice, but learning at the same time is even better! In Burgundy, there are two itineraries that will match your expectations and take you on a journey back in time...

The Burgundy Canal is a Royal waterway with the Renaissance châteaus dotted along the water's edge, as well as industrial heritage sites, little charming villages and Towns of Art and History.

The Nivernais Canal cycle path, runs along one of the most beautiful canals in France, where you'll learn about sailors and the timber trade, and you'll be able to admire some exceptional works of art created by the hydraulic engineers of bygone days.
