Multi-canal cruises

> ECHO TOURISTIQUE SPECIAL ISSUE (March 2013)

River tourism in France isn’t just about a procession of cruise ships on the Rhône or the Seine. The canals are also used for sailing, on boats that don’t require a licence to skipper, or hotel-barges […] Unlike the country’s major rivers, now busy with traffic all year round, the “secondary network” is only used between Easter and late Autumn. Niche cruises are run by two kinds of operators: those who rent out boats requiring no licence, and owners of hotel-barges […] The two most popular waterways are the Canal du Midi and the Burgundy-Nivernais canal, but sailing is also possible in Camargue, Brittany or Alsace.
