Upper Seine cruise

2025: May 22-28 and June 16-22
cabin bookings available

Your charming boutique barge Johanna will take you from Evry on the Seine to Montargis along the Canal du Loing.

An equally beautiful scenic route, you will visit towns such as Melun, Moret-sur-Loing, Nemours, and Château-Landon. Since this route takes us partly on the mighty river Seine, you will experience the busy port of St. Mammes with huge laden commercial barges passing through.

Our moorings along the Canal du Loing are peaceful and rural with plenty of opportunities to walk, bike or simply relax.

Come and join us. Savor the food and wine, and relax while discovering a truly enchanting countryside.

  Your Seine and Loing experience...

On all our cruises, you have a choice of things to do and places to visit, according to your preferences. Below is just a selection of what you can expect.

Visiting the garden of France

Welcome to the magnificent countryside of France. We cruise through the fascinating region of the Upper Seine and river Loing. This region is often referred to as the “Garden of France”. It is a typically French landscape with peaceful, rolling countryside.

The week starts with a visit to the Royal Palace of Fontainebleau or the Versaille-like castle of Vaux-le-Vicomte. During the cruise you will  visit the village of Barbizon, famous for all the impressionists painters. You can also discover nearby Moret-sur-Loing. Here Alfred Sisley lived and painted the fascinating buildings and picturesque spots that haven’t changed since.

Enjoy a walking tour of Nemours and admire the breathtaking views from the medieval hillside city of Château-Landon, former capital of the counts of the Gâtinais.

We end our week in the picturesque town of Montargis, known as the “Little Venice of the Gâtinais” for its many canals and flowered bridges.

This Upper Seine cruise can be combined with the UpperLoire cruise as a 14 day Seine-Loire cruise.
