You come to a place where some flat bottom little boats are moored, you embark for a 45 minutes trip very slowly throughout nature and cultivated fields on the edge of the river, it looks as if you were very far from the city but you are only... 3 km! the guide is very funny and I spent a wonderful moment

Les Hortillonnages is a series of waterways through a large expanse of market gardens. You can take a 45 minute boat trip on small boats that are like gondolas that weave their way through the gardens. It is not possible to book tickets in advance and, in the summer, there can be long queues, particularly if you arrive after a coach trip. The staff wipe the boats down with disinfectant between trips but there is no concept of social distancing with 12 people squashed into each boat. The trip is scenic and relaxing although we did not have any commentary - the boatman was chatting to the people at the back of the boat in French but made no effort to speak to the rest of the people on board in French or any other language.

The boat trip is just fascinating. We had a very enthusiastic guide, speaking to us in French and English , to explain the history and present of this huge nature reserve with all its part time inhabitants and owners. Just see it! Then you can walk around and see again the strange and beautiful sights you only glimpsed at leisure.

We had read about this as something nice to do in Amiens. We followed the tourist signs in the city centre and walked down to the place near the river where you can get on the boats. We were there approx 9am didn’t have to wait long cost 25 euro for family of 4. Guide spoke a little English and tried to explain some things and was very helpful to us. Commentary was only in French obviously but I think if you had a recorded version it wouldn’t work so we were happy just to look and enjoy. Approx 45 mini tour of these little canals with market gardens and summer houses absolutely beautiful can’t think of anywhere else that I’ve seen or heard has anything similar. Well worth a visit and the children enjoyed it as well.

We went there discovering Amiens and learned a lot on how it was built and known at the time. I loved how pationated the guides were in the history of this place. It's lovely, cheap and lasts about 40 minutes. Highly recommend. I went on this trip four times so far and gain knowledge evertime!
