Bike and barge Cruise

For those who love to cycle
We'll provide the support you need to cycle Burgundy

Any week for Charter Groups

The Nivernais Canal offers a glorious network of quiet lanes for keen cyclists
For charter groups, our onboard bike guide organises and leads daily rides from the barge
For individual passengers looking for extra challenges - we can offer maps and packed lunches

Hotel barge Luciole organises a varied itinerary for the keen cyclist who wants to wheel the miles and bike in Burgundy. For passengers who would prefer not to cycle every day (perhaps they are accompanying a cyclist and not wanting to cycle at all!) our itinerary enables you to enjoy the week from the comfort of a Luciole chair, rather than a bike saddle!

The week's itinerary gives passengers the best of all worlds, dovetailing a half-day of biking, 10 - 30 miles (16 - 50 km) with barging and our regular visits. Our experienced bike guide will lead the biking, combining the varied local scenery of limestone cliffs, river valleys and vineyards with the opportunity to cycle to a number of the Luciole visits.

Hybrid bikes, with 21 gears
Electric bikes available (surcharge)
Bike helmets
Professional bike guide, working in partnership with the Luciole crew

And of course everything else you would expect from our 'All-inclusive' Luciole barge cruise
