Inland Holidays

Inland holidays are all about relaxing in the tranquility and beauty of the countryside and leaving the hustle and bustle of daily life behind. 

The canals and rivers of England, Scotland and Wales stretch for over 2,000 miles through some of the finest countryside and interesting cities imaginable - the Grand Union Canal, the Norfolk Broads, the Cheshire Ring, the Llangollen Canal and the Scottish Lochs. Whilst in Europe, France, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Italy and Poland all have extensive river and canal networks to explore.

If this is your first inland cruise, don't be worried: navigating the inland waterways is not easy and the boat hire company will teach you everything you need to know before you start your holiday so you can cruise with complete confidence. On board you will find home-from-home comforts including a fully-equipped kitchen, bathrooms and entertainment equipment.
