Highlights
  • Cruise up the canals of burgundy aboard the danièle
  • Sip local wines and sample regional dishes
  • Cycle through villages and vineyards
  • Relax in the onboard jacuzzi as the scenery glides by

Blessed with some of the most gorgeous countryside in Europe, if not the world (not to mention perhaps the best wine around), Burgundy is a place everyone should explore at least once. And the best way to do it is from the deck of an ambling river barge. Visit small villages and first-rate wineries, bike through forests and vineyards on a provided bicycle, and soak up the glorious sunshine, all with the help of a charming little hotel that goes where you go. You won’t get a better glimpse of Burgundy’s pastoral pleasures than this.

It was an incredible experience that completely blew me away! I would recommend this tour and G Adventures to anyone looking to travel. A small group allowed everyone to get to know each other, and for everyone to enjoy the tour. Biking through vineyards, wine and cheese tastings, and amazing scenery as we cruised down the rivers made this tour an incredible experience. And the staff on board, and Charlotte, were incredible- they made everyone feel at home and went above and beyond in everything.

Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and solo travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.

Age Notes

Min. Age: You must be 18 to travel unaccompanied on a G Adventures tour. For minors travelling with a guardian over 21 years old, the minimum age is 12.

Rules & Other Requirements Illegal drugs will not be tolerated on any trips. Possessing or using drugs not only contravenes the laws of the land but also puts the rest of the group at risk. Smoking marijuana and opium is a part of local culture in some parts of the world but is not acceptable for our travellers. Our philosophy of travel is one of respect towards everyone we encounter, and in particular the local people who make the world the special place it is. The exploitation of prostitutes is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our group leader has the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes.
