Enjoy a Classic Barging Experience

European Waterways is one of the excellent companies offering wonderful holidays on water in many destinations throughout Europe. From Scotland to Italy and France to Luxembourg, the fleet of barges run by European Waterways offers all inclusive luxury barge holidays, perfect for the discerning traveller looking for a trip that emphasises the finer side of life. Whether you are looking to hire a barge for a large group of friends or you are an individual wanting to join a group of similar minded people, there will be a barge and a destination ideal for you.

What To Expect

By booking with a company such as European Waterways, you are guaranteed a quality service from the start of your booking to the end of your trip. These companies pride themselves on having an expert knowledge of the industry, offering personal customer service and providing an exemplary professional standard in every aspect. The idea of the barge holiday is to give the traveller a completely new look at a country, take them deep into the heart of the rural countryside, and experience the place from a different perspective. Guides on board offer day excursions to some of the attractions in the local area including markets, chateaux, vineyards and churches, and you are welcome, of course, to leave the vessel in the small towns and villages to explore on your own, too.

All vessels are fully crewed and the staff on board is there to help you make the most of your stay. Cabins are serviced every day and there is always someone on duty should you need anything. Every barge has its own chef, carefully chosen for their expertise and commitment to quality food. You will find yourself enjoying some of the most delicious local dishes complemented by fine wines and followed by the delicious cheeses of the region you are visiting.

European Waterways offer added luxury on their barges and the cabins on board are spacious, en suite and have ample storage space. Fluffy towels, extra toiletries and beautiful cotton bed sheets make you feel like you are sleeping in a five star hotel. Outside deck space comes as standard and there are comfortable sunbeds and deckchairs for those who want to sit back, have a glass of wine and enjoy the picture postcard scenery that passes them by.

Themed Cruises

If you have a special interest or hobby, you should consider one of the themed cruises offered by European Waterways. There are luxury cruises based on art, cycling, cooking, wild flowers and even tennis, and it does not matter if you are an amateur or new to your hobby, these cruises will offer something for you. You can spend a week with like-minded people taking your chosen subject to a new level and reaping the rewards of having an expert on board, while experiencing your subject in a totally new context.
