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

At just an hour from Paris by TGV (2 hours if by road), our Venarey-les-Laumes base is located on the Canal de Bourgogne, which is part of one of France’s most famous networks of waterways.
