From Lake Neuchâtel, the Grande Cariçaie nature reserve is revealed in a new light. By sailing with a canoe in company of a biologist, the experiences nature differently. No trees or reeds above his field of vision, he embraces the area, and approaches the banks with delicacy to observe the flight of a Great Cormorant, the nest of a Grebe Huppé or the rhythmic swimming of a family of Red-necked Nets.

This excursion takes place in full respect of the natural reserve's rules, in areas with free access to the public. To not disturb the fauna and to facilitate its observation, dogs are not welcomed.
