Paddle Steamer
Saint-Nazaire-en-Royans (30 km)

We offer you an exceptional and family-friendly cruise at the foot of the Vercors Mountains, between the villages of Saint-Nazaire-en-Royans in Drôme and La Sône in Isère, on a unusual boat that gives visitors a touch of Louisiana! Embark on a journey along the waters of the La Bourne and Isère rivers for a round trip or a one-way excursion in a green setting where the birds accompany you for a moment of relaxation and discovery on board a boat propelled by paddle wheels.

Once you’ve arrived at La Sône, discover the Jardin des Fontaines Pétrifiantes, a beautiful green setting full of flowers and water in the department of Isère. In this paradise filled with thousand springs, you will take a self-guided tour and explore the botanical world: rare plants from Asia, Africa, America, Australia, etc. happily grow in a sumptuous setting of ponds and waterfalls. Soothed by the trickling of the water, come relax with family or friends in a quiet and peaceful setting.

Upon your return to Saint-Nazaire-en-Royans, finish your trip with a visit to Grotte de Thaïs, a red and black coloured cave with naturally fractured reliefs. Immerse yourself in the history of the inhabitants of the village during the last Ice Age!
