• From Loire to Erdre : you board the Belem pontoon, on the Loire, cross the lock then the Saint-Félix tunnel and disembark at 15 Quai de Versailles on the Erdre*. Departure at 10h30.
*Possibility to return to the Bélem pontoon for only 4€ extra per person and thus enjoy a 2 hour ride.
• From Erdre to the Loire : you board at 15 Quai de Versailles sur l'Erdre, cross the Défi through the tunnel then the Saint-Félix lock, and disembark at the Belem pontoon on the Loire. Departure at 11h45.
