Bruges to Paris cruise, route description

With a total sailing distance of some 462km (286 miles), we need to cover more distance per day than on a normal barging cruise. Six to eight hours cruising per day are no exception on this trip.

On most cruising days, we start cruising in the morning and stop somewhere around noon. After lunch, a minivan excursion brings you to interesting places in the area, while the ship continues its way to the evening mooring space. This way you get the best of both worlds.

For people seeking a stressless getaway from the bustle of everyday life, we can offer to stay on board all time. Just relax, enjoy the landscape rolling by while you enjoy a drink on deck or finally open that book you always wanted to read. As we don’t need a driver or minivan, you get a special price.

When splitting the route in 2, we probably need an additional day in Péronne for the change over.

For people really interested in WW1, Péronne is the central location to stay an additional day to visit the many memorials in the Somme area. An alternative route from Compiegne via Soissons and Berry-au-Bac to Reims gives the possibility to visit the Dragon Caves on the Chemin des Dames.

So whatever is your main interest, we can offer you a perfect cruise.
