The canal system

The canal

Historical and monumental, the construction spanned more than a 100 years and changed the landscape along a path of more than 250 kilometres. It includes more than 150 locks, a 3 kilometre tunnel, aquadeucts, reservoirs holding millons of tonnes of water...

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 appreciate, 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.

There are miles of tow-paths, lanes and country roads for strolling and cycling along. Forests, hills and woodlands to savor with the lush green and golden colours, ever changing throughout the year.
