learn to pilot a canal barge!

Aslaug is a new-built, owner-operated barge. She welcomes 4 guests on board. Cruising in Picardy, Kurt the captain is offering to share his knowledge with guests willing to lraern how to handle a barge. You'll spend time at the wheel and on deck going through 14 locks and 6 mobile bridges! A lot of fun and excitment and a unique experience! Aslaug is the only boat proposing such cruise. Very reasonably priced, really worth trying!
