French Canals

France is famous for its incredible food and beautiful sights, and both can be enjoyed on a tranquil river cruise along the French canals. The man-made canals lead you through the city of Dijon, but primarily wind around picturesque little villages around the regions of Provence, Champagne, and the Languedoc. Here you will find delectable delights made at home and local vineyards with a variety of wines for you to try. Plus, you can enjoy a trip to the markets in Provence or step back and admire the breathtaking French Alps visible on the far horizon.

Not only are you surrounded by good food and good drink, but also a deep and enthralling history. Visit enchanting chateaux and medieval villages to discover the most beautiful hidden corners of France as you drift along the Canal du Midi or Burgundy Canal without a care in the world.
