are you new to
canal cruising?
An extensive matrix of canals were built in France and throughout Europe approximately 300 years ago to encourage and advance commerce. The typical hotel barge is a flat-bottomed boat, originally built for river and canal transport and designed for hauling cargo through the canals of Europe, but these vessels are no longer large enough to compete in this industry by today's standards.

Owners of these barges renovated them to use as luxury Hotel Barges, and today are transporting vacation seekers through the same canals they once hauled grain or coal through. The Hotel Barges cruise these waterways at a leisurely pace offering passengers the chance to enjoy the marvelous sights that might otherwise be missed.
