The Lot – an enchanting setting for an introduction to waterway tourism
Choose to navigate the waters of the Lot and you’ll be offering yourself the opportunity to put together a bespoke cruise tailored to your preferences. Would you like to leave from the historic town of Cahors, the region’s winegrowing hub, and dream up a gastronomic cruise ? Or would you prefer the charm of the town of Luzech, a veritable peninsula sandwiched between the meanders of the Lot ? Whichever route you choose, we’ll train you in handling your rental boat to ensure you can navigate with confidence.
Whatever your itinerary, you’ll enjoy the pleasures of waterway cruising, making the most of the calm, idyllic setting. Wherever your chosen destination, the Lot remains one of the most beautiful rivers in France, with multiple ideas for stop-offs. Enjoy breath-taking views, set off for a cycle ride or opt, instead, to take a dip in one of the region’s lakes. It’s high time, then, to embark on your chosen houseboat and set off to embrace relaxation and discovery !
From one discovery to another – all the promises of a waterway cruise on the Lot
Turn this waterway cruise into a real gastronomic journey. The region’s culinary specialties, from duck confit to traditional foie gras, are unveiled in the local markets. Moor up and leave your licence-free boat to bring back the region’s gastronomic treasures to enjoy on board. The vineyards of Cahors are representative of the landscapes that will accompany you during your waterway cruise.
You can also enjoy strolling the streets of Cahors. From the amphitheatre to Saint Etienne cathedral, the town’s buildings tell you an exciting and eventful story. Navigate between the cliffs to enjoy an exceptional spectacle and moor up on the approach to one of the most beautiful villages in France, Saint Cirq Lapopie.
Don’t miss the bastide of Castelfranc near Cahors and, if your cruise takes you close to Luzech, a walk to the foot of the elegant Saint Pierre church is a must.
