Canoe trips

The river for everyone

Wild above Montrichard, managed further downstream, the Cher has two faces, perfect for people who love nature or ‘slow tourism’.

For individuals, groups, families (with the famous ‘Family trip’), and companies, Aventure Canoë has many different packages to explore the Cher, the famous river know as the ‘Loire’s little sister’. We met two couples on holiday who made very different choices!

We're very sporty and love nature.

We wanted a holiday under 2 hours from home and here, we were spoiled!

“We’re very sporty and love nature. We wanted a holiday under 2 hours from home and here, we were spoiled!” We had a breath of fresh air, including two canoe trips around Saint-Aignan. We didn’t know the Cher: in this section, it is winding, not very wide, wild and unspoiled. Everything we love!

Frédéric, the manager of the canoe-kayak club, gave us great advice and lots of information about the flora and fauna that we could see on our trip: we were able to observe a lot of birds and fish and we stopped a few times to snack in idyllic places, completely cut off from the world. It’s a very rich and surprising natural heritage just a few kilometres from the road!”
