Embrace the gentle pace of life in Ardennes on your waterway cruise
Navigate the waters of the Meuse at the helm of your houseboat, taking you through the wooded landscapes so characteristic of this region of the Ardennes. Enjoy travelling through the manual locks or take to the Ardennes Canal and navigate the series of 26 automatic locks in the Montgon Valley. You can take your licence-free boat to the world capital of peace, Verdun, unwinding in the landscapes of Lorraine. Head to our Pont à Bar base to take advantage of an Ardennes waterway cruise. Here, we’ll guide you in choosing your houseboat, but also train you to captain it.
Little-known sites to explore, embracing the rhythm of your licence-free boat
Follow the meanders of the Meuse and take the time to admire these magnificent landscapes. At Monthermé, the meanders of the river resemble a true work of art. Extend your waterway cruise to Sedan, where you’ll discover all the secrets of the largest castle in Europe. You’ll be captivated by Mont Olympe in Charleville Mézières, where you can really get away from it all, unless you prefer a more poetic excursion with a visit to the Arthur Rimbaud museum.
Don’t miss out on the pleasure of a cycle ride during your cruise, providing an opportunity to ring the changes and make your waterway cruise even more attractive for every member of your crew. Take to the towpaths, or the specially adapted trails through the famous Ardennes forest, and you’ll be able to further immerse yourselves in the region’s traditions, as well as allowing those who wish to indulge in another passion : fishing.
