Whether you're a go-getter sports enthusiast or a couch potato (make that french fry?), there's something for you in Giverny. Vernon is Giverny's sister-city, located nearby and between the two, you can get your fill of sports and activities.

You can rent a kayak or canoe and float idylically down the historic River Seine, whose location played a part Operation Overlord (better known as the Normandie Invasion) in 1944. Nearby lake fishing is availabe too, and in a stocked lake, so you're bound to get something more than an old boot on your line.

Guided horseback riding is a fun adventure for the whole family as is horse-drawn carriage rides. ATV accomodations are available as long as you have a valid driver's licence. Now, for the couch french fry or better yet, the vintage car enthusiast, chauffer-driven tours can be had in a Citroen Traction. Take the Monet Tour, the Mill Tour, or the Castle and Mansion Tour, or all three.

You may think stone carving is a stretch for the sports category, but then, have you ever tried creating a sculpture in 24 hours? Get the Icy Hot ready to rub on the muscles of the contestants in the annual contest held in Vernon using Vernon stone in May.
