Boat hire, requiring no licence and popular with families or groups of friends, is set for good times ahead with the growth of a new type of holiday, combining waterway cruises with walking or cycling, visits to see places of interest and opportunities to sample the local cuisine. According to VNF, recreational sailors tie up twice a day for two hours on average, to visit the local market, go shopping, visit museums, explore villages,… Studies have found that the average tourist on the rivers and canals in the south-west rides 12 km by bicycle, and walks 4 km on foot.
