  • Sip local wines and sample regional dishes
  • Cycle through villages and vineyards
  • Relax in the onboard jacuzzi as the scenery glides by

Short Description

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.

Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.

Enjoying the French countryside with slow food, slow waters, and at a pace you can get used to! Have some of the best French Cuisine without leaving the water, learn about life on the water, the history of the water ways, indulge in cheese and create lasting memories in this intimate cruise.

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.

Solo Notes

We believe solo travellers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and solo travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.

Accomodations

Aboard the Danièle canal barge (6 nts), hotel (1 nt).

12 spacious cabins. Amenities: each cabin has a window and is equipped with private en-suite facilities (shower and WC with hair dryer), TV, radio, telephone (for internal calls only), safe and independent air-conditioning. Number of cabins: 12 Maximum passenger capacity: 22 Number of crew members: 5 Amenities on board: spacious lounge with bar - restaurant - sun deck with loungers and parasols - barbecue deck - Jacuzzi at the prow of the barge - bicycles on board available for use by passengers - wifi on board.

Guides

Chief Experience Officer (CEO) throughout.

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 people in the sex trade is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our CEOs have the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they engage in any form of paid sex work.
