Activities and rentals at the Domaine
The Domaine Le Colombier propose you its kayak and bike rental service to explore the jewels of its area.
Our kayak trips invite you to fully enjoy the gifts of nature, but also the benefits and serenity of this activity in family.
As the Aube river progresses, you will be able to take time for nice breaks on the beaches to cool off on hot days. You will bathe in a calm river which will delight young and old.
In the shade of its trees, you will discover great ecological wealth. Between the roots of the trees, the plants that grow on the banks and in the water, you can observe all the flora of the Aube.
These trees and plants provide perfect homes for the animal species that inhabit Aube. Carp, perch or even barbots will accompany you during your canoe trip. You may also see some crayfish and amphibians.
Looking up you may observe some protected bird species. So, as they take flight, you will have the chance to admire a kingfisher, a long-tailed tit or a black swift.
Beyond discovering these gems, our kayak trips on the Aube will offer you wonderful moments of relaxation. This activity will also allow you to experience memorable moments of conviviality with family or friends.
