Discover SUP near Paris on La Marne


We are lucky to be in a region of lakes and rivers so close to Paris. Upstream from Paris, the Marne river flows further into the Seine and offers a natural SUP area.

A natural river that takes you on a historic journey, from passing the chocolate factory Menier which is listed in the inventory of historical monuments, to a small path between the trees on the lake of Vaires - the Olympic site of the future Games of rowing 2024! The largest canoeing site in the world with its incredible artificial whitewater rivers.
