River shuttles

Take a trip on the Canal de l’Ourcq in Paris: Welcome on board our river shuttles for 1 or 2 euros!

The river shuttles are back on the Ourcq canal  this summer with the festival Eté du Canal. Hop on our boat shuttles and let them take you to our different events: floating concerts, balls, play, water sports etc..

Every weekend from July 9th to August 14th 2022, hop on our river shuttles for 1¤ per trip on Saturdays, 2¤ per trip on Sundays with a departure every 40 minutes.

These river shuttles will take you all summer long to dance balls, water parks, barges, shows and other festive entertainments during the Eté du Canal – Summer on the Canal festival.

An original view of Paris as seen from a boat

Once on board and carried along by the current, you will experience the canal differently, drifting slowly along while enjoying another side of Paris: "la Rotonde" by Nicolas Ledoux at Bassin de la Villette, the architecture of Parc de la Villette, the site of the Grands-Moulins in Pantin, the Centre National de la Danse – national Dance Centre, the East-European TGV Technicentre or the departemental parc de la Bergère in Bobigny. Get off when you want at the different stops to enjoy a party, concert and other dances or simply take in the view that passes in front of your eyes from the boat.
