Hotel Barge tour on the Nivernais Canal.

Full Itinerary

Explore Burgundy's Canals by Hotel Barge

Cruise the rivers and canals of the French countryside on an intimate French luxury hotel barge. Our travelers share the barge with others from around the world. This vacation offers an intimate exploration of the Burgundy region of France. The boat typically averages about 4 mph as it winds along narrow canals and navigate numerous locks, many still operated by hand.

While onboard the barge, relax and sample the finest French cuisine and wines that Burgundy has to offer. This is an all-inclusive barge cruise with meals, most beverages and shore visits included in the tour price. We have a private bus for our barge to take us to Chablis and other towns a ways back from the river. If you prefer a slower pace, you can use one of the ship's bikes or take a leisurely walk on the towpaths that parallel the waterways.

Call us and reserve your space on this relaxing barge cruise on the Yonne River and Nivernais Canal, for an unforgettable vacation.

Highlights of this trip include:

  • Start and end your French adventure with a night in Paris before and after your barge experience.
  • Join our free transfer between Paris and the town of Auxerre where we embark.
  • Relax in a comfortable classic 14-passenger barge for six nights and enjoy the peace and quiet of these intimate rivers and canals.
  • Be pampered on the barge, with all shore visits, meals and most beverages included in the tour price.
  • Explore the surrounding countryside and villages in our private bus, by bike or by walking.
  • Enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime trek with a friendly group of travelers, including some who reserve directly with the barge operator.

Please contact us for available dates throughout the summer for this all-welcome cruise.
