Barge & Walking Holidays

You walk while we move your accommodation!

Barges and walking go extremely well together. A barge offers all the comforts of home and exclusive use by groups of four walkers. By special arrangement, I might even be able to accommodate six, possibly even cruising in tandem with a friends barge doubling that capacity. 

Barges go lovely and slowly and while we move between the locations we've agreed upon, you can either relax aboard or zig zag and walk between those points. On many occasions, rivers or canals have wonderful flat towpaths alongside making it possible to jump aboard when you get tired or off at a lock when you fancy a bit of exercise. In the latter half of our schedule, Burgundy and the Vosges offer terrific opportunities for walking but in my view, the gem of my routes has to be the magnificent Ardennes and Zorn Valley across to Strasbourg. Study my schedule, dig out your maps and a fantastic holiday just might be in the making. 

After a healthy breakfast each morning, you can use Barge Nilaya's galley to make up a substantial packed lunch to take with you. Depending on the planned route, we might even be able to rendezvous with you for a proper lunch aboard. Each evening you can return to Barge Nilaya for steaming showers and either dine ashore or self cater aboard.

What we might do together is limited only by our combined imaginations.
