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.
The charming little port of KERKDRIEL is located 15 km north of Bois le Duc. Two restaurants and a beach are within the immediate vicinity of the base where your Nicols boat awaits you.
Kerkdriel: the beach is close to the base and the town centre has many restaurants.
Gouda: famous for its cheese, its old town and its Saint Jean church with remarkable stained-glass windows.
Gorinchem: an ancient walled city on an island whose fortifications are still relatively intact.
Heusden: a fortified city that is a must-stop when on the Meuse River.
