BARGING AROUND

Trav­el­ling aboard a lux­ury ho­tel barge is a dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ence to con­ven­tional river cruising. Boats are much smaller and slower-paced, able to ease along the more in­ti­mate canals and wa­ter­ways of Europe, many in­ac­ces­si­ble to larger ves­sels. Car­ry­ing be­tween six and 20 guests, the em­pha­sis is on im­mer­sion in the cul­ture, his­tory and gas­tron­omy of a re­gion. Eu­ro­pean Wa­ter­ways (eu­ro­pean­wa­ter­ways.com) op­er­ates these gen­tle voy­ages of dis­cov­ery, some themed (opera, wine ap­pre­ci­a­tion, walk­ing), in France, Italy, Scot­land, Ire­land, Eng­land, Ger­many, Bel­gium, Hol­land and Lux­em­bourg. Prices from £2,280pp for six nights in­clud­ing gourmet meals, wines, an open bar, daily chauf­feured ex­cur­sions and air­port trans­fers.
