A unique way to visit

Come aboard the Bateau Champagne Vallée for an exceptional cruise in Champagne! In this boat built in 1992, charming with its paddle wheel, you will have a front row seat from the panoramic room.

Located in Cumières, 10 minutes from Epernay, the pier is perfectly integrated into the vineyard where the Marne River winds, in the heart of the Champagne hillsides listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A unique and unusual way to discover the Champagne landscapes, the navigation on the river, or the local fauna and flora.

Several formulas are available upon reservation: commented cruise, lunch or dinner cruise. The boat can accommodate 140 people for a cruise and 80 for catering. The perfect option to celebrate a special occasion, a romantic anniversary or a family party!

Recharge your batteries!

If you want to interact even more with the environment, book your private boat trip on Lamarilou. This private barge can accommodate up to 6 passengers for an unforgettable day on the canal and the Marne, between Condé-sur-Marne and Cumières. The Captain welcomes you on board in the morning for a full day of sailing on the Canal Latéral à la Marne towards Tours-sur-Marne. At a relaxing pace of 6 km/h, you will have all the time in the world to admire the landscape and the Champagne hillsides. Passing locks, tasting champagne or stopping in the village of Cumières, on the banks of the Marne, this unique cruise promises you a dive into the art of living in the Champagne region!

What if you opted for the ecological cruise by sailing on board 100% electric boats ? It is possible with Blue Nautic, a leisure base located in a harbor cove, inside the municipal camping of Épernay. In this quiet place, ideal to recharge your batteries, you can rent one of the 5 small electric boats without a license, and go for a 1 to 3 hours trip on the Marne. You will be the captain of the boat in a few moments thanks to our customized briefing. At the end of the eco-cruise, relax on the terrace of the base’s restaurant, with free access!
