Heritage and history
A selection of outstanding canal cruises which will take you through historically rich regions.
On the water and in the water: with your Pénichette® you will always find a good spot to dive in and to cool off.
France, Italy, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands or Poland have some nice surprises in store for you in the heart of preserved natural areas and you will admire magnificent ever-changing landscapes.
Unfamiliar flavours and fragrances will delight you in all the regions that you visit.
Travelling on board a Pénichette® can also be combined with a city trip. You can moor your craft in the heart of the most charming towns or stay a stone’s throw away.
