Sail Europe’s most enticing canals, rivers and lochs on board an intimate floating hotel with European Waterways. The company’s barge cruises provide a one-of-a-kind experience: While traveling from one stop to another, you’ll relax in the countryside, discover historical treasures and enjoy fine wine, delicious food and good company along the way.
Each fully-staffed luxury vessel includes a captain, a host and a gourmet chef. A tour leader accompanies you on land for daily guided excursions to castles, chateaux, vineyards, markets and more. Special theme cruises are also available for those interested in a specific sport or hobby.
European Waterways’ barges offer accommodations for between six and 20 guests; tandem cruises are also available for large groups. All barges combine elegant décor with modern amenities and feature an open bar stocked with a wide range of alcoholic beverages and soft drinks. Cruises are available for individual bookings, where you’ll join other like-minded travelers on board, or for full-ship charters.
