Relaxed affordable cruising

Traveling along the canal at around 6km/h (3 mph) Serenity is in no hurry, giving you the opportunity to truly get away from it all and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.  In fact barging really is the ultimate in slow travel, because not only is there time to drink in the scenery whilst cruising but our excursions focus on revealing the hidden places and local people of our area, far from the tourist crowds.


As well as our excursions, the relaxed pace also means there’s plenty of time to explore by yourself, either on foot or using one of our bikes.  Your crew will be happy to give you tips on which way to head so that you might stumble across a charming church, a spectacular view across the vines or a village square boulangerie.


All of our cruises are offered on an all-inclusive basis with daily tour guide led excursions, all meals, all drinks onboard and transport to/from Paris.
