The Burgundy Canal offers the perfect adventure vacation for families and friends.
The boats are comfortable and designed to be easy to handle. The engine size is limited so that no "pilot's" license is required. They are designed to give you the maximum comfort and space. All the companies offering boat rentals will give you a detailed explication and introduction to boat handling before you leave the base and start to navigate.
France has many kilometres of navigable inland waterways with canals and rivers open to pleasure craft. In Burgundy alone there is more than 1000 kilometres of cruising on the three main canals Bourgogne, Centre and Nivernais.
The rental boats are ideal vacations for families, friends and groups of people. Safer and easy to handle, the craft are designed to give pleasure to all. From the novice boatman to the skilled sailor, the crafts are easy to "pilot" and there is much fun and enjoyment for all.
