River cruises around Douai

Explore the Scarpe River

Board the Eureka and discover all the wonders that the banks of the Scarpe have to offer. On board this barge, featuring a panoramic room and an upper deck, admire the natural, river and industrial heritage of Douai. With family or friends, book your guided cruise, your lunch on board, or your seat at a musical show! Douai cruises are exclusive and original escapades!

Relaxing cruise along the Scarpe

Let yourself be relaxed by the sound of the lapping water, and open your eyes and ears wide… David, your captain, passionately evokes the world of inland navigation and explains the rules of river navigation. The Fort-de-Scarpe lock, the impressive freight barges, the Jean-Claude Darnal bridge and the lovely facades of the houses lined up side by side along the banks… A Douai cruise is a perfect way to (re)discover the City of the Giants!

Musical aperitifs & lunch cruises

Embarking on the Eureka can also mean a chance to enjoy the view and the setting sun while listening to a variety of concerts, with your hair blowing in the wind and a drink in your hand. Electro, rock, jazz, French songs… An hour and a half of pure happiness, departing from Gayant-Expo!

You can also opt for a lunch cruise. You can choose between a 3-hour trip in Douai and its surroundings, or a 6-hour cruise from Douai to Arleux. As a couple, with your family or with all your friends, enjoy delicious dishes prepared by the best caterers in Douai. On the lower deck, large picture windows allow you to eat and enjoy the views… in comfort!
