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

Luxembourg's children association comes every year to Lille for their annual guided bike tour. It’s fun for us to see these young cyclists grow year after year. But on August 16, 2017 they have decided to try out this year’s novelty with the guided tour on scooters ! 

A very urban exploratory Paddle outing this Sunday, August 6, a 7 km route literally on the footsteps of La Défense business district. Summer is the right period to make new discoveries on water. On Wednesday evenings in Lille and Sunday mornings in Paris. A head-spinning experience!

The fun bikes events are in demand in June. After Pantin, Clichy and Lille you will find them in St-Omer, Fourmies, Joinville or Brussels ! You can't but try them ! It's like reliving your first time on a bicycle when your eyes were glittering with joy. But this time you won't lose your balance !
