A waterside bike ride along the Loing Canal

A pleasant bike ride along the Loing, following a section of the “Scandibérique” EuroVelo 3 trans-European bike route, between Souppes-sur-Loing and Moret-sur-Loing. More ambitious explorers can keep pedaling all the way to Fontainebleau and its majestic château.

Discover southern Seine-et-Marne via this waterside itinerary snaking along the Loing Canal, between Souppes-sur-Loing and the medieval and Impressionist town of Moret-sur-Loing. This portion of the “Scandibérique” EuroVelo 3 bike route (linking Trondheim in Norway to Santiago de Compostela in Spain) will allow you to explore this lovely region of water and light. The towpath is mostly tarred for smooth riding.
After Moret-sur-Loing, more ambitious cyclists can choose to pedal on to Fontainebleau and its splendid palace, once the residence of French monarchs.

Safety instructions and good practices: - Respect the French highway code and remain vigilant on and near all roads, particularly at intersections and when crossing départementales (secondary roads) and passing over bridges. To that end, carefully read the guide provided for each itinerary. - Wear a properly fitting helmet. At night and in bad weather, wear a fluorescent vest with reflective bands and carry a proper torch/flashlight. - Restrictions for children under 12: make sure that the loop you want to follow is well suited to your children. - After every picnic, leave no trash behind, and respect the wild flora and fauna. - Prior to departure, make sure that your smartphone or tablet is sufficiently charged. Consider taking along a charger. - If you happen to notice any anomaly while following an itinerary, please don’t hesitate to write us! We value all such observations and remarks.
