Weekend canoe trip on the River Somme
June 18 |8:00 am - June 19 |5:00 pm€250
The Romans called her Samara, adopting Gallic terms: samo (quiet) and ar (river or valley). And it is true, the Somme is a very peaceful stream. Her valley forms a complex set of rivers, marshes, ponds and canals we will paddle between Amiens and Abbeville.
It winds through a quiet landscape where hundred-year-old weeping willows greet you from its banks. In the fields you are likely to see herons and, between the trees, a few stately residences hardly daring to reveal themselves. During this weekend canoe trip historical treasures await you. The Reims cathedral but also the medieval character of the villages. In the evening, after dinner, take a tour in the marshes where the trails will lead you to discover the specific flora and fauna of this place.
