Exploring the Rivers of Western France

Located at the heart of France’s largest basin of navigable rivers, the Mayenne, Sarthe, Maine, and Oudon make up the “Rivières de l’Ouest®” (the “Rivers of Western France”). They cover a territory studded with many gems around the historic cities of Le Mans, Angers, and Laval.

Weigh anchor on 283km (176mi) of calm waters for a cruise, a stay on a self drive barge, or a canoe-kayak trip. From biking to hiking, from boating to camping: the green valleys and charming towns and villages alike open themselves up to visitors at their chosen speed.
