What's better than a boat trip to explore the Marais Audomarois?

Close your eyes and imagine... While you are a stone's throw from the town center of Saint-Omer, hop on board and go for a boat trip in the Audomarois marsh, for an exceptional moment.

Accompanied by a guide from the Maison du Marais, you will discover this exceptional biosphere reserve classified by UNESCO under the “Man & Biosphere” label which promotes the cohabitation of man and nature.

Embark aboard one of our traditional boats

Embark aboard one of our traditional boats for 1 hour of total disconnection in the heart of the nature of the Audomarois marshes. The approximately 170km of waterways in the marsh, the wateringues, are waiting for you.

Touch the wood of the bacôve boat and breathe in its smell. Then, let yourself be transported by a passionate guide to the heart of a natural paradise. You only hear the voice of the guide, the lapping of the water and the songs of the birds.

Open your eyes again so as not to miss the spectacle playing out in front of you! Experience the wonder of the parade of swans, the flight of the gray heron or the water lilies in bloom. You're off for an hour of total disconnection, discovering the exceptional fauna and flora of the marsh.

At the heart of this natural labyrinth, between the isolated houses on the islands, perhaps you will meet the last postman in France to make his tour by boat... 1 hour walk in the marsh - 12 people maximum per boat

In the history of the Audomarois marsh

This ride in a bacôve, a traditional wooden boat, will also be an opportunity to learn more about local history and folklore. But also that of the monks of Saint Bertin who, from the 7th century, tried with an iron will to domesticate these hostile and wild lands to create the landscape that we know today. The walk is also an opportunity to learn more about the sometimes unusual daily life of the inhabitants.

In the middle of exceptional fauna and flora

Coots, gray herons, great crested grebes and even dragonflies and water lilies hold no secrets for your eco-interpreter guides. Therefore, keep your eyes peeled: during your boat trip you will inevitably come across one or other of the 240 species of birds, and nearly 400 varieties of plants that are home to the Audomarois marsh.
