A waterway cruise to Amiens, taking in the historic riches of Picardy

When you set off on your house­boat from our Long base, head east towards the pre­fec­ture of the Somme départe­ment. The town’s bel­fry will quick­ly become a land­mark from the cock­pit of your licence-free boat, although Amiens is also home to many oth­er rich­es. With its impres­sive dimen­sions (145 metres in length, with 42-metre-high nave vaults), Cathé­drale Notre Dame d’Amiens stands out as a gem of Goth­ic archi­tec­ture. This build­ing, erect­ed between 1220 and 1288 and list­ed as a UNESCO World Her­itage site is still France’s largest church, so leave the com­fort of your house­boat to explore its 7700 m².

From Amiens to the Bay of Somme : itineraries to personalise for an unforgettable waterway cruise

Don’t leave Amiens with­out embark­ing on one of the boats in the Saint Leu dis­trict, which will trans­port you to the hor­tillon­nages, float­ing gar­dens that form one of the city’s emblems. Your Picardy water­way cruise will take you through the char­ac­ter­is­tic bocage of North­ern France. And if you pre­fer to head west from our Long base you can take in the Bay of Somme. This great place for bird watch­ing (don’t miss Mar­quenterre park) is sure to become one of the high­lights of your water­way cruise. Nav­i­gate your way to Saint Valery sur Somme and stroll through the town’s pic­turesque streets, or cross the bay to enjoy all the enter­tain­ments that the town of Cro­toy has to offer.
