Join us for a memorable way to explore “off the beaten track” southern Burgundy! We customize your unique voyage to your pace, interests and tastes.  Your private charter for:

  • four persons is $6,800 CDN
  • two persons is $5000 CDN 
  • three persons is $6,000 CDN 

We’re always open to discussing a shorter or longer cruise to suit your vacation plans!


These contributions include five nights accomodation, two dinners, breakfast and lunch daily, and all wine, beer, tea, coffee, snacks, water, internet access and use of barge amenities such as bicycles. Unlike large cruise ships, there are no additional costs such as port charges, taxes or tipping. 

We'll hold your reservation enquiry for two weeks. To secure your chosen dates we request a deposit of 20%  of your total contribution at the time of booking, with the balance due 90 days prior to the start of your trip. 

Slow barge travel offers a wonderful contrast with cosmopolitan Paris and Lyon – we’re always pleased to help with travel suggestions that include these wonderful cities. We're also pleased to assist with information about car rentals, rail tickets, airport shuttles and more. If you live in or near Victoria, please join us for wine and cheese and we'll help with advice to make your whole trip a fabulous one!


These include events like illness, drought, floods, breaks in the canal and other issues beyond anyone's control. Any of these may cause last minute changes to our routes. Although rare, we reserve the right to modify routes accordingly.


  • We will provide a partial refund for unused full days in the event of the cruise being cut short.
  • All advance contributions will be refunded without interest if the entire cruise is cancelled. 
  • If you cancel your trip within 90 days of the start of your cruise, we'll refund your contribution, less your deposit, if we're able to book your cruise with others.
  • Your cancellation more than 90 days before your cruise will result in forfeiture of your deposit. We will reschedule where possible and apply your deposit to a rescheduled cruise.
  • All deposits and advance contributions will be fully refunded if for any reason we're unable to deliver your cruise for the reserved dates. Please note that our liability ends aftermaking a full and immediate refund.
