The Hotel Barging Experience


Our hotel barge cruises gently introduce you to some of Europe’s finest scenery, fascinating history and local culture.


From the picturesque vineyards of Burgundy to the spectacular Scottish Highlands; from the sun-drenched South of France to the storybook Alsace region - along canals like the Nivernais, Burgundy and Canal du Midi in France and majestic rivers such as the Thames, Shannon and Po.

Each 6-night cruise is a slow-paced, immersive experience as you enjoy a balanced blend of daily excursions and fascinating cruising, gourmet cuisine, fine wines - all whilst being pampered by an attentive crew.

          Hotel Barging Compared to Other Forms of Cruising

  • Intimate atmosphere with small passenger numbers and a very high level of personal service
  • Cruises are generally less than 70 miles in a week, at only 3mph
  • Cruises on smaller waterways inaccessible to larger vessels
  • Unique cruising experiences such as the Pont Canal de Briare, Arzviller
  • Boat Elevator and the Malpas Tunnel
  • Gentle pace and immersion in the local culture and history
  • We cruise a few feet from the towpath, so it’s easy to moor up and explore on foot or bicycle
  • More focus on the wines and cuisine of each region
  • Excursions in small groups to “off the beaten track” places
  • Relaxed and exclusive house party atmosphere
  • Whole barge charters always available
