Burgundy boasts some of Europe’s prettiest canal routes and offers great possibilities for walkers of all abilities. La Belle Epoque on the Canal du Nivernais provides a very comfortable base (with a spa pool in which to relax those joints before or after a walk) and your own master chef to prepare delicious regional meals to provide perfect sustenance for a week’s walking! An open bar provides liquid refreshment of all types and a cheerful crew ensure all your needs are catered for.
With this carefully planned cruise and walking schedule, you can properly experience the grass roots of Burgundy! Great food, smooth cruise, calm walking…. In the company of a professional walking guide, saunter along the region’s scenic pathways through dreamy old villages, past castles and vineyards. Have no fear, we provide just the right balance of exploration, exertion and relaxation!
Or, perhaps you'd rather join the tour with a bike!
