Departure Bases & Suggested Routes in Lot:
Cruise Hire in Franche Comte

Get on board for a self-drive canal boating holiday through the heart of the superb Lot valley: a succession of cliffs, creeks and caves are waiting for you around every green and leafy bend of the beautiful and natural waterways. 74 km of rivers and their surrounding pleasures! 17 manual locks (work them yourself) take you back in time.

The old villages in Quercy, forgotten by time, lanes, red mossy roofs, the famous Valentre Bridge in Cahors, the cliffs at Bouzies, Saint-Cirq-Lapopie perched on its spur, all add real charm to this canal boating holiday destination.

Nicols offers canal barge hire at the Bouzies base (former river port for the village of St-Cirq-Lapopie) located on the Lot. This untamed river, dotted with manual locks, sometimes undergoes flow variations: some boating experience is therefore recommended to really make the most of your canal boating holiday!
