Rent a Riverboat
You can stop whenever you want to and visit the local market, see beautiful landscapes and whatever you want. A sailing holiday is a great way to see a country or region from a new perspective.
If you have never sailed before, you can still safely rent a riverboat and sail safely on many of Europe's rivers and canals. There is no requirement that you must have a sailing certificate or have any kind of sailing experience. And no matter what country you choose to sail from, you will always get a thorough review of the boat by the staff. They give you the most important navigation instructions on arrival. And they will quickly make you a safe and excellent captain.
On your sailing trip, you have the freedom to decide for yourself where you want to make stops and moorings. It is also possible to use one of the many jetties or it is possible for you to sail into one of the small ports along the routes. But it is also possible to make stops at the shore.
On your riverboat holiday you can rent bikes or even bring your own bikes. The bicycles can be taken on board the boat. Take a stop ashore, follow the bike paths and visit a village or take a shopping trip. A classic among cycling trips is the 250-kilometer-long route Voie Verte along the Canal du Midi, which is laid out on the former hiking trails along the canal.

All boats contain cabins with berths and bed linen, pantry (kitchen) that is well equipped and corresponding to the number of people the boat can accommodate, in addition there is a bathroom and shower and much more.
