Canal boating holidays in Lot

Get on board for a self-drive canal boating holiday through the heart of the superb Lot valley: a succession of cliffs, creeks and caves are waiting for you around every green and leafy bend of the beautiful and natural waterways.

74 km of rivers and their surrounding pleasures! 17 manual locks (work them yourself) take you back in time.

The old villages in Quercy, forgotten by time, lanes, red mossy roofs, the famous Valentré Bridge in Cahors, the cliffs at Bouziès, Saint-Cirq-Lapopie perched on its spur, all add real charm to this canal boating holiday destination.

Hire a canal barge on the Lot

Nicols offers canal barge hire at the Bouziès base (former river port for the village of St-Cirq-Lapopie) located on the Lot. This untamed river, dotted with manual locks, sometimes undergoes flow variations: some boating experience is therefore recommended to really make the most of your canal boating holiday!
