Canal barge holidays in Burgundy

Discover the best hotel barge cruises and self-drive boat trips on France’s magnificent Burgundy Canal.

The calm inland waterways climb from the rivers Saône and Yonne heading high into rolling hills, which are covered in dense forests of oak and elm.

As you cruise along the canal, you’ll pass through villages and small towns with typical bistros to enjoy, as well as markets and shops to delve into. Medieval castles, ancient abbeys and fortified walls remain standing and waiting. Noble vineyards with the greatest crus, and wine cellars with the best years, are close by and offer you the opportunity of wine tasting. Moreover, there are miles of paths and lanes for strolling or cycling along.
