Navigation on the Charente

It is a welcoming, very beautiful river, convenient to navigate quite freely.
We also call it the happy river … You will cross soft landscapes and will discover how alders, fennels of water, or the other wild reeds all seized the banks. Doubtless you will spot some kingfishers, grey herons or moorhens too. Fishing Amateurs, carps, trout, pike perches, pikes, eels and many others species populate the Charente , so get to your fishing lines!
