The Canal du Nivernais

a journey through time

Linking the Loire’s basin with the Seine’s basin, the Canal du Nivernais stretches for 178 km and takes you on a veritable journey through time. This itinerary is charged with history and traditions, recalling the golden era of "canal civilisation" through its remarkable art works, such as the Sardy flight locks and the "vaults" of the Collancelle, without forgetting Clamecy, the capital of timber floating, which really deserves a much closer look. Your itinerary will take a bucolic twist thanks to the vineyards of Coulanges and the ponds of Vaux and Baye. On foot, by bike or by boat, let yourself be guided right up to Decize and the melancholy landscapes of its confluence with the Loire and/or its lateral canal…
