Get a new perspective on France with this canal boat adventure. Each day you'll cruise for four to five hours, clearing locks and seeing the world at a pace you'll appreciate. Along the way stop for wine tastings and gastronomic indulgences, cycle along country lanes and hike green valleys. Your houseboat home has only five cabins, so you're sharing the deck and the views with like-minded travellers. With a CEO there to offer advice – and steer! – you'll quickly realize that getting there is half the adventure.
Please note that the following is a sample itinerary only and may change due to canal conditions, traffic, weather and other factors. Some departures will run in the opposite direction.
Travel to the beautiful countryside of the Burgundy region where you board our 15m (49-ft.) canal boat. The boat has four cabins with attached bathrooms (plus a cabin for your CEO). A shared lounge and kitchen round off the inside space with garden furniture and an electric barbecue featured outside. Opt to rent a bicycle during your tour and store it on board, space permitting. Meet at 4pm to stock up on kitchen necessities before the group meeting at 6pm on board. Note that Louhans is accessible by train from Dijon, which has multiple daily train connections to both Paris and Lyon.
Cruise on average 4-5 hours a day along the Saône and La Seille Rivers, maneuvering through locks on the way. Sample local wines and delicious French cuisine as you float along the waterways, stopping to visit picturesque towns en route, including La Truchère, Tournus, Chalon, Fragnes, Gigny-sur-Saône and Pont de Vaux. Take an optional day trip to Beaune, hike or cycle trails alongside the canal, visit a château or just relax on board the boat.
Cruise one last morning, then arrive back to Louhans by 9am.
