Barge Cruises

A canal barge cruise is the ideal way to combine comfort and travelling. The calm found on the silent waters is what makes these cruises on French canals so unique. These intimate itineraries cross the most beautiful regions in France and put you at the heart of our abundant countryside dotted with picturesque villages. Some passengers will enjoy walking along the way, freely exploring the historical areas and monuments. Others will adore jumping on the bikes available on board to follow the bike paths that stretch for hundreds and hundreds of miles along the canals. Each of the regions will reveal its secrets and appeal during our daily navigation and excursions.

The Loire Valley

The Loire River was one of the main French waterways with very active canal transport operations from the 17th to 19th centuries. CroisiEurope has revived paddle riverboats on the Loire, the longest river in the country, to visit the exceptional sites found along its route. The Loire is the perfect destination for a vacation through a region rich in culture and bursting with the French art de vivre that began along this royal river.

The Seine Valley

What a wonderful way to (re) discover fabulous Paris, the picturesque villages lining the edges of the river, and the must see sites in Normandy. Art lovers will fall under the spell of the scenery that mesmerised immortal painters such as Monet, Renoir, Cézanne, Van Gogh, and Boudin, to name just a few. History buffs will adore exploring the Palace of Versailles, the Châteaux de Martainville or Malmaison, as well as discovering the profound past at the beaches of Normandy. The different Norman abbeys remain a large part of the region’s religious heritage. Outdoor lovers will prefer the wild beauty found on the white Côte d’Albâtre cliffs, the beaches, the Côte Fleurie countryside, and the breathtaking panoramas throughout the Seine Valley.

The Garonne & Dordogne Valleys

The Gironde Estuary in southwestern France is where the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers meet. It is the entryway to Bordeaux, known throughout the world for its exquisite wines—including famous protected designations such as Blaye, Pauillac, Saint-Estèphe, and Médoc. Royan is ideally located at the mouth of the Gironde estuary, allowing you to discover the famous seaside towns of Rochefort and La Rochelle. The Gironde is also known for its diverse landscapes. On the left bank we find vineyards sitting above the bottomlands, and dunes and marshes close to the sea. On the right bank, steep cliffs and rolling hills contrast the lower lands on the opposite side, while the great swamps are located to the north.

The Rhône and Saône

From Burgundy to Provence, our cruises on the Rhône and Saône Rivers are filled to the brim with cultural, natural, historical, and gastronomical discoveries. Our cruises on the Rhône pass through the Gorges de l’Ardèche and the Vercors Massif, some of the most impressive and well-preserved landscapes in France. Art and history are also in the forefront on these cruises as we stop in some of the most legendary cities in the area, including Arles, Avignon, Mâcon, and Lyon.

Venice, Lagoons & the Canal Bianco

During our Venetian cruise, our ship docks a few hundred meters from iconic Saint Mark’s Square—giving our passengers an almost panoramic view of this centuries-old city spread out over no less than 118 small islands. Our brand new itinerary takes you to the heart of Italian regions filled with history, architecture and fine food. Veneto opens its doors and invites you to discover Venice, Vicenza and Verona. Renaissance-infused Lombardy will take your breath away with its varied panoramas in Mantua or Cremona. Finally, Emilia-Romagna will tantalise your taste buds with a gourmet tour of Parma: only the very best of Italian traditions and cuisine.


The Guadalquivir and Guadiana Rivers reflect the contrasts found in the region—from the snow-capped Sierra Nevada to the arid deserts and white sandy beaches basking in the sun. With over 300 days of sun during the year and a fantastic southern European climate, Andalusia provides a festive backdrop to some of the most beautiful cultural and natural sites, including the largest number of protected areas in Spain and an incomparable artistic heritage.

The Douro

The Douro River begins in Spain and winds its way down over 2,250 m in altitude and across 850 km. This “Golden River” is testimony to love for the Portuguese and their music. The vineyards are one of the biggest draws in the Douro Valley and have required 20 centuries of hard labor dating back to the Romans to cultivate and sculpt the terraced vineyards suspended along the hills. The Douro is a calm, inviting river, crossing through five dams along its course—Crestuma-Lever, Carrapatello (water-level difference of 35 m, the highest in Europe) Régua, Valeira, and Pocinho.
