River tourism sails through the crisis

> Ouest France (December 2010)

Like a ray of sunlight in the storm, river tourism came through 2008-2009 in fine fettle. Industry professionals at Nautic, the Paris Boat Show, say the crisis has had little or no impact on a brand of tourism that’s proving increasingly popular with the French public! With 8,500 kilometres of navigable waterways, including some real gems in the west of the country, the potential for French river tourism is enormous, yet often little known. Though long reserved for the Dutch and Germans, the boats that wind their way along the Saône or between the locks on the Canal du Midi have become a fashionable choice for French holidaymakers.
