River tourism: bucolic bliss

> Petit futé (May/June 2013)

[…] Today, the priority for humans is not to master the environment, but to enjoy nature exactly as it is. And if nature is now dictating the rhythm, then river tourism is the tempo!

Sailing sedately along and whistling softly on the banks is a simple pleasure that anyone can enjoy. There is a plethora of options to choose from, from trips of just a few hours to cruises lasting a whole day, a weekend or more, boats to hire, quayside events, floating restaurants, hotel-barges, and more besides…

Whatever type of trip you choose, river tourism is a fine way to discover another side of France, from Mulhouse to Strasbourg or from Arles to Lyons, along the Canal du Midi, through the Poitevin marshes or on the Seine.

Follow the guide, cast off and set sail! […]
