"the best holidays have been those where I have set off on my own.
It’s a shame that the single traveller continues to be largely ignored
by tour operators & forced to pay an unfairly high single supplement".


at Canal Cruising in france,
we intend to change that !


Canal cruise holidays for single travellers are about like-minded, mature individuals having a good time aboard a floating hotel.
Taking a solo holiday may feel like a giant leap but you shouldn't worry, we will ensure you are on the right boat and enjoy the
perfect cruise on French canals from start to finish. The dedicated crew will look after all those small details that really matter.
