A Variety of Authentic Destinations  

  • Burgundy
    Burgundy is bisected by two major canals – the Canal de Bourgogne and the Canal du Nivernais. The former provides a north-south access through France and is a 200-mile masterpiece of pre-Industrial Revolution engineering. It passes through Dijon en route to the south. The latter links two of France’s greatest rivers, the Seine and the Loire. It crosses some beautiful and unspoilt countryside.

    Celebrated as one of the finest barging regions in France, Burgundy’s many treasures are waiting to be discovered as you explore it in the most enjoyable (and extremely relaxing) way. Stroll through charming market towns and enjoy privileged access to iconic chateaux for rare wine tastings.

  • Provence
    Charming Provence: a region full of sophisticated architecture dating back to the Roman civilization and ruins of fortifications, arenas and aqueducts that continue to amaze modern engineers.

    Discover a world of history and colorful heritage, through cities with breathtaking panoramas and amazing scenery. From romantic cities to foodie havens and artistic epicenters, a cruise in Provence enlivens all your senses: savor the beauty of legendary vineyards and imbibe in local vintages, refine your Provençal cooking skills, and learn how to pair chocolate with wine, trace the steps of famous artists in Arles and Avignon and be inspired!

  • Bordeaux
    Located in the southwest of France, Bordeaux offers more vineyards—more than 100,000—than you could possibly try, but there’s glory even in just scratching the surface.

    The crescent-shaped city of Bordeaux, found along the Garonne River, has been the region’s wine capital for decades, with its illustrious past on display in the Golden Triangle area’s ornate buildings.

    A cruise through the Bordeaux region is a river cruise experience on a combination of one of more rivers; the Garonne, Gironde and Dordogne. Rich in both history and taste, this is a wine connoisseur’s paradise and a must for anyone interested in the best of French culture, lifestyle, wine and food.

  • Midi Canal
    Midi Canal
    The Canal is a waterway constructed by Louis XIV to connect the Atlantic Ocean with the Mediterranean, passing through some of the most beautiful scenery in France.

    One of the major advantages in slowly cruising your way down the Canal is that each day can pretty much be as you like it, including visits to tiny market towns you’d never see on a traditional tourist route, going for a ride on the idyllic cycling routes, or discovering the old castles, churches and ruins dotted throughout the countryside from the Cathar movement in the 12th century.

    The Canal also passes through one of the country’s finest wine regions, Languedoc. This includes, smaller, boutique regions like Herault, the Aude, Minervois and Corbieres.

  • Loire Region
    Loire Region
    The Loire is France’s longest river, offering several cruise routes:

    A riverboat cruise on the “Royal River” itself, south of the Brittany coast, or barge cruising on one of the inland Loire tributaries: The Cher in the Loire Valley & Chateaux Country, and the Canal Lateral a la Loire, in the Upper Loire, which is especially popular for enchantingly introducing you to life in the slow lane.

    Whatever your choice is, this cruise will take you to the heart of authentic "terroirs" and characterful cities with colorful heritage.

  • Alsace
    Discover Alsace, the land of tradition and gastronomy!

    A region that often looks German and even sounds German...But its heart is passionately French. Cruise the Alsace Lorraine and visit the must-see places of this charming region while discovering its gastronomic specialties and famous wines. Strasbourg and its Gothic cathedral, Colmar and its little Venice with the charm of half-timbered houses, and of course the famous wine route with its villages full of character.
