Discover the famous wine region of Loire Nivernais with a boating holiday in the heart of France. Sample renowned wines from Sancerre and Pouilly-sur-Loire and see impressive structures such as the Eiffel designed canal bridge at Briare.
A boating holiday in the Loire Valley sees you navigate on the beautiful waterways of Canal de Briare, the Canal latéral à la Loire and the splendid Canal du Nivernais. Be charmed by life on the waterways as you gently flow peacefully between charming villages and past hills and forests.
At only two hours or two and a half hours from Paris (depending on which Nicols base chosen) you can be sure of a boating holiday that has something for everyone, including:
The Nicols base at Plagny is located just a few kilometres from Nevers and offers boating holidays on the Canal latéral à la Loire or the famous Canal du Nivernais.
It’s also possible to see more of the region by undertaking a one-way boating holiday along the Canal latéral à la Loire from Plagny to the other Nicols base at Rogny.
* Please note: the one-way boating holiday is subject to certain conditions – please ask the Nicols team for more information.
