We specialize in canal boat tours in France. Nothing is more satisfying or more relaxing than sipping a glass of fine wine as you glide along the canal which passes through the vineyards that grew the grapes which you now enjoy. Not only will you get to experience some of France’s best wines, they will be plentiful and inexpensive.
Each morning fresh bread, strong coffee, and the beauty of the French countryside will greet you, and every evening you’ll sleep in a comfortable bed in your own traveling home. Visiting rural France via canal boat provides a perspective few ever get to see.
We’ve traveled the canals of Northern Burgundy, Alsace, Provence, and the Camargue. We’ve enjoyed the Canal du Nivernais which winds through the Northern Burgundy and has the reputation of being one of the prettiest canals in France. We also cruised the Canal du Lateral a la Loire which took us through the upper Loire river valley and into the Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume wine growing regions. In these regions we tasted Crémant de Bourgogne, Chablis, Sancerre, Pouilly-Fume, and other small regional Bourgogne wines that are generally unavailable to us in North America.
The Canal du Midi holds a special place in our hearts as it is the first canal we ever cruised. The Camargue is an intriguing mix of remote natural space with ancient settlements, and it is one of the last wild places in France.
