River, Coastal and Canal Cruises

Discover some of the world’s most scenic rivers, canals and coastlines with our inspiring range of Jules Verne cruise holidays.

River, canal and coastal cruises are a wonderful way to travel allowing you to unwind and watch the ever-changing scenery that unfolds as you glide by. There’s no better way to discover the treasures of each country, whilst travelling in style and comfort. The ability to unpack and settle in, without the repetitive necessities of hotel formalities, undoubtedly adds to the levels of relaxation.

Water based travel enables us to effortlessly combine fascinating sights, towns and cities, in a way that may not be feasible by land. Our use of small vessels offers even greater flexibility, with the option to access smaller waterways and discover the hidden gems that larger boat cruises may be forced to miss. Smaller group sizes also promote a friendly, intimate atmosphere, with expert talks about the local history, culture, or wildlife adding to the positive dynamic on many of our river cruises.

By boat or by barge, historic steamship or expedition vessel, we have the ideal cruise whatever your preference and budget.
