Treat yourself to an immersion in a landscape of marshes and ponds as you set off from Long

The town of Long makes a great hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion for a real change of scenery even before book­ing your licence-free rental boat. Take the time to vis­it this tra­di­tion­al town in the Somme val­ley, home to a château that’s emblem­at­ic of the region. Won­der at the hydro­elec­tric pow­er sta­tion, a work of human genius. You’ll then be able to embark on your house­boat, tak­ing to the Somme as you begin your riv­er cruise. What­ev­er route you take, and regard­less of the dura­tion of your cruise, you’ll nav­i­gate between a suc­ces­sion of ponds and marsh­es. This is a par­adise for fish­ing enthu­si­asts – you’ll be able to moor wher­ev­er you want to indulge your pas­sion. More adven­tur­ous mem­bers of your crew seek­ing activ­i­ties of a greater inten­si­ty might like to head for one of the nau­ti­cal bases to take a swim, as well as being able to ride their ATB bikes along the tow­paths, fol­low­ing your boat. Off-road cycling is one of the most pop­u­lar activ­i­ties dur­ing each of our riv­er cruis­es.
