Self-Drive Canal Boating
Go your own way. Explore the pleasures and treasures of the French waterways.
Waterway France has eight quite distinct and fascinating regions – influenced by past history and neighbouring countries as well as by geography and climate. Together they provide a glorious variety of cuisines, wines and cultures to savour and fall in love with.
DISCOVER YOUR DESTINATION
Each region has delightful waterways, just ready for you to discover
by self-drive boat, luxury hotel barge or riverboat cruise.
Yours to Discover . . .
From Toulouse west to Bordeaux tranquil south-west France is a lush, rolling landscape of wine, fruit and produce. Fascinating history lies around every corner.
Explore the Garonne canal by hotel barge or self-drive boat. Journey from magnificent Bordeaux to the Medoc vineyards on a riverboat cruise.
South of Paris the almost-secret pretty Gatinais region follows the Loing river down to the Loire Valley and the world-famous canal bridge at Briare.
The scenery then widens along the broad Loire river to the vineyards of Sancerre and the fabulous chateaux of the French nobility.
French Waterways’ own unique PDF guides introduce some of the most interesting things
to be enjoyed on and around the enchanting rivers and canals of France.
Written and created from expert first-hand experience.
