Travelling time on the waterways is a parameter as variable as on the road!
We indicate you the minimum cruising time needed to take maximum advantage of the unique environment which you will discover. Obviously, you can spend more time to stroll and take pictures or you can speed up your trip, as you wish.
You must not forget that the 40 kms of canals to which you have access are a living environment. You may come across private and professional boats that will have the full priority over you. Therefore, sometimes you need to give way to another boat and let it go in front of you.
This is the main reason why it can take more or less time than indicated below.
These cruising lengths are for guidance only and are not contractual.
