Water sports activities on Aube lakes


So, what’s the plan? A bit of windsurfing with a jet-ski supplement, for a bit of adrenalin? Paddle out on the lakes or the Seine to enjoy the scenery? Take to the skies aboard a hydro-ULM? Or a cruise along the lakes with meals on board (a little relaxation never hurt anyone)?

Here’s what we’ll do: we’ll list all the water sports you can do in Aube, on the lakes of the Forêt d’Orient, and you choose. We suggest, you decide.

Canoeing and paddling on the calm waters of lakes or the Seine River

A few reminders: in canoeing and kayaking, you sit in a boat. You can paddle, alone or in pairs, all wrapped up in your lifejacket. On a paddle, it’s different: you’re alone and balanced on a board. That’s it, explanations done!

The Comité Aube Canoë Kayak and the CNA voile offer a range of canoe and paddle courses on the Aube lakes and the Seine. From gentle downhill runs to more rhythmic courses, there’s something for everyone, whatever your age or level ! The club even offers half-day and full-day water sports packages, including transport, swimming and picnics. A dream come true !

Whichever water sports activity you choose, you’ll be sailing on the waters of the Aube or Seine lakes and enjoying the Champagne countryside !

Yachting, windsurfing, catamaran or paddle: water sports and escape

Everyone knows what windsurfing is? It’s a board with a sail attached to a mast, allowing you to steer by leaning to one side or the other. We’ve already talked about the paddle, but what about the catamaran? It’s a sailing boat mounted on two hulls, ideal for sharing time with family and friends.

Interested in water sports? Just the thing, as several clubs and associations in the Aube region offer a wide choice of water sports ! You can rent the necessary equipment or bring your own boat during sailing periods !

Kitesurfing, a water sports activity for thrill-seekers

That’s right ! Paddleboarding and windsurfing were more or less okay, but kitesurfing… Yes, everyone knows the name, but we don’t really know what it is… Let’s put an end to the suspense. You’ll love it !

Kitesurfing is a water sport that combines windsurfing, surfing and kitesurfing. It consists of a sail, a board and a control bar. The principle ? Use the force of the wind to move across the water at high speed: thrills guaranteed !

Sport, fun, adrenaline: this water sports activity is perfect for adventurers in the Aube who are looking for a thrill ! Beware, however, as this sport requires a mastery of navigation, physical strength and good coordination. Let’s avoid accidents !

Interested ? Two associations, AWA and Gliss’Orient, offer you the chance to try out this water sports activity on the Aube lakes 😊

Do you prefer jet skiing or water skiing ?

Whatever the case, you’re in for a truly extraordinary experience.

Would you like to cruise the crystal-clear waters of the Aube lakes on a “jet ski” (yes, you can call it that too) ? Synonymous with speed and freedom, jet-skiing is the perfect nautical activity to satisfy your desire to get away from it all !

SFCM Nautique, located in Dienville, offers jet-ski rentals on Lake Amance ! Please note that a license is required.
