From Dompierre to Decize, you sail a short distance along the Loire through the lush landscape of the Morvan massif to the southern Nivernais Canal.

Canal du Nivernais:

- Built between 1783 and 1842, the canal connects the Loire and Seine rivers and is often called the most beautiful of French river routes.

To Corbigny, you will sail through a peaceful pastureland alongside historic wine-growing villages, see the water sports centre of Etang de Baye, the Chateau of Chatillon-en-Bazois.

The landscape and architecture of the Nivernais region are as inviting as the bottle of Chablis served with quail.
