Specialist for river cruises in France

A long tradition in the industry and some of the most romantic boats on the market, that's the French company Locaboat in a nutshell. The company's domain is, of course, river cruising in France. Seeing the beauty of France from the deck of a ship is an experience of a lifetime. The elegant canals of Burgundy, the legendary sun-drenched Canal du Midi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the endless flow of the canals and rivers of Brittany, the picturesque Alsatian rivers and the untamed Camargue await tourists. France is simply the perfect destination for your first river cruise... or even your tenth. The only problem you'll have as a visitor here is choosing from so many beautiful places.
