Description of
the boating holiday

WHY CHOOSE A 10-DAY CANAL BOAT HOLIDAY

A 10-day boating holiday itinerary has many advantages. To begin with, your start day or return to base day will instead fall outside of the peak weekend days. This means that not only may you notice less traffic on the roads when travelling to the Nicols base but that our teams will have much more time to dedicate to going through everything about your boat and navigation on the waterways. Also by stretching to 10-days canal boat hire, you can choose one of our standard "one week" routes and take your time to increase either the number of stop-off points or the time you spend at each, or you might decide to explore further afield with a longer route such as the one suggested below.

Departure base

Located at the foot of the Regional Natural Park of the Northern Vosges which is classified as a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, the marina of Saverne is an excellent starting point for a boating holiday.  From here you can discover a region rich in gastronomy, culture, heritage and nature.
