To facilitate alternative transportation
and leisure activities in urban waterways

  • Welcome

    Le Grand Huit aims at offering you fun moments of happiness and joy by helping you experience the city in a different way with original activities. We hope to encourage you to move in a more fun and smarter way and to allow you to practise leisure activities without having to drive a car anywhere.

    For instance, you can take a private penny-farthing bike lesson with us or surf on a stand up paddle downtown on a river spot we were happy and proud to create. We can also organize corporate ECO-gatherings to help you save tons of CO2 emissions or simply make your trip to Gent, Paris or Lille an unforgettable one with a bike tour.

    In short, Le Grand Huit provides your company or group of friends with original, wonderful and photogenic activities which make sense

Breathtaking landscapes, secular civilisations, mythic valley, for sure a Le Grand Huit member couldn't miss to plan this expedition. Follow him on Facebook Gilles de Joinville. Yalla !
