A white water course in the town centre, the Moselle and the Canal des Vosges, and more recently the Natur'O Vive white water stadium in the Port of Epinal, make Epinal an emblematic town for canoeing.
On the banks of the Moselle, the GESN water sports centre offers you a large number of water sports activities to do on your own or accompanied by a professional. You will find activities adapted to your desires, combining leisure activities with competition at the highest level.
Many champions were trained in Epinal, such as Matthieu PECHE and Gauthier KLAUSS, who won the bronze medal at the Rio Olympic Games, or Michel SAIDI, world champion in tandem canoe with Jérôme DAVAL.
Dynamic and friendly, the GESN has not hesitated to develop its activities with the general public. Numerous nautical activities are offered: canoeing, kayaking, stand-up paddle and pedal boats. You can rent or take a guided tour of the area. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced hiker, the routes between Archettes and Charmes will allow you to discover a wild nature, with a varied and charming fauna and flora. During your walk, will you have the chance to see a beaver, to admire the discreet dive of a kingfisher or the perfect profile of a hunting heron ?
For all practices, you must be equipped with dedicated clothing adapted to the practice and to the weather. Closed shoes are compulsory. All minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian.
