Waterways of France

From the famous Seine, whose route cuts through the centre of Paris, and the Rhône, which begins its journey 497 miles before its arrival in Lyon, to the Dordogne, whose banks are as beguiling as the river itself, and the Garonne which cuts through the heart of the finest French winelands; the waterways of France are entirely diverse and enchanting. Serving up a wealth of experiences that include Impressionist inspiration and masterpieces, traditional fishing villages keeping time-honoured traditions alive, bountiful seafood, unusual wildlife...the list just goes on and on! So, find out for yourself exactly what a cruise through this multifaceted destination has to offer, and prepare to be more than pleasantly surprised.

Beyond its famous rivers such as the Seine and the Rhône, are the entirely diverse and utterly charming Waterways of France. Along these picturesque rivers and canals, you'll find the gardens that served as inspiration for Impressionist masterpieces, authentic fishing villages, stunning architecture, culinary delights and more! These itineraries are a truly unique way to immerse yourself in everything France has to offer.

“The barge and crew were excellent, as was the food. The train travel was as expected (except for a change of station in Paris not known about by our travel guide thus incurring an unexpected walk with our luggage). Also, the travel guide did not know our boat was not moored in Dijon and transfer from the train to the boat was slightly chaotic taking over an hour longer than expected. Daily coach tours from the barge were mediocre. I reiterate that the barge and crew were brilliant
