#expeditioncruising .

Save over $5000 per person – but act quickly space is limited *
Cruise for 7-days / 6-nights through Burgundy visiting Auxerre, Chablis, Avalon and V├ęzelay and make amazing savings on the last few cabins on select dates for 2017.

Cruising holiday specialists Outdoor Travel, based in Bright, Victoria offer this two for the price of one deal - but act quickly, these cabins won’t last at this price.

The Captain pilots the barge along the River Yonne and Nivernais canal, each day cruising for 6 to 7 hours through glorious scenery and mooring each evening in dramatic Auxerre, Medieval and timeless Clamecy or several other villages.

Daily excursions by mini-bus are included and expert guides will introduce you to a region rich in history and culture including wine tasting, shopping and sightseeing

The traditional English managed hotel barge accommodates a maximum of just 12 guests in comfortably appointed cabins all with their own private bathroom.

Meals are included and the onboard chef presents imaginative French cuisine with a contemporary twist using fresh local ingredients. Breakfast is usually freshly baked croissants, pastries and bread. Lunch is a feast of salads and savoury dishes, followed by a selection of fresh fruit and cheeses. The four-course evening meal is the gastronomic highlight of each day. Imagine glistening glasses and starched linen napkins for a dinner party with friends. Dining by candlelight while the sun-sets, reflecting onto the water, simply bliss.

There is an ‘open bar’ available at all times and the sun deck or the air-conditioned saloon with its large picture windows to is the perfect place to enjoy the scenery of rural Burgundy.
