Let locals Frederic and Nikki of TheWaysBeyond guide you through the small streets off the Canal Saint-Martin and introduce you to some of the most exciting actors and addresses on Paris’s eco-conscious scene.

The Canal Saint Martin neighborhood has always attracted an eclectic crowd, but a recent boom of shops, cafés, galleries, and green initiatives along the water has made this area a true hipster haven.

On your guided tour, you’ll try an organic vegetable shot, taste gluten-free pastries and vegan dishes, learn about contemporary plant creations, and meet the artists and artisans shaping this neighborhood, from bakers to bag designers!

Your guides Frederic and Nikki will also make sure you end the afternoon in true Parisian fashion with an apéro along the Canal! Good conversation, cheese, and natural wine included!

Meet Your Local Guide

Although neither Nikki nor Frederic were born in Paris, they have both developed a true passion for their adopted home. As TheWaysBeyond, the duo proposes unique activities for small groups of curious travelers and locals alike.
