Holidays on the river

> Presse Océan (May 2011)

Whether on organized cruises or privately hired boats, French holidaymakers are showing increasing enthusiasm for river tourism. “It’s a kind of itinerant tourism that people enjoy. They hire a boat in the same way as they would book a chalet in winter”, says Véronique Verges, Tourism Director at VNF, the agency responsible for France’s waterways. Boat hire with no licence, a popular choice for families or groups of friends, is set fair with the development of “river tourism”, which combines the joys of sailing with hiking or cycling trips, visits to places of interest and the chance to taste local cuisine.
