Canals and Sailing Tours
Enjoy a New Perspective on Our Canals and Sailing Tours
Make the most of day stops
There are magical moments to be had when you step off the boat on our Canals and Sailing tours. With plenty of trips to palaces, cathedrals and heart-stealing towns on the agenda, you can be sure that delicious local cuisine, authentic experiences and elegant traditional architecture are never too far away.
Slow paced, scenic tours
Explore Europe with a fresh perspective by cruising the serene canals of France or sailing the idyllic bays of Italy and Croatia. Our leisurely paced, scenic tours steer you away from busy, overcrowded resorts, instead taking you to destinations rarely visited by tourists. The result? The ultimate experiential holiday.
Transfers included from Paris on French canal tours
Travelling the canals of France with Back-Roads is a hassle-free experience, with transfers to and from Paris included. When you arrive, an experienced Driver will meet you at the airport and escort you to your designated starting point by luxury mini-coach – and when the tour is over, your transfer will return you to the airport in time for your flight home.
Hidden gem destinations in Italy and Croatia
In the ever-charming Bay of Naples and along Croatia’s beguiling Dalmatian Coast, the beauty of the views out to sea is matched by the plethora of picturesque sights you’ll see on land. Concealed coves, small coastal towns and villages, exquisite national parks and near-deserted beaches are just some of the hidden gems you’ll uncover.
All meals included on board
All meals served aboard our private cruises are included as part of your holiday package – saving you the trouble of hunting down restaurants and booking tables. And with a dedicated on-board Chef on hand to whip up authentic local dishes from fresh ingredients, you can be sure that each meal you receive will be of an extremely high standard!
