PLAY THE GAME. CRUISE THE WORLD.
Welcome to our exclusive collection of hotel barge cruises. For over 40 years, we have specialised in creating luxury barge holidays on some of the most beautiful waterways in Europe.
Far removed from the hustle and bustle of city life, these voyages allow you to travel in luxury without the strains of packing and unpacking, whilst enjoying a balanced blend of daily excursions and fascinating cruising.
The Hotel Barging Experience, Our vessels gently introduce you to some of Europe’s finest scenery, fascinating history, and local culture.
Every European Waterways six-night barge cruise includes all gourmet meals, regional wines, an open bar, local transfers, and the use of onboard facilities such as bicycles to explore the towpaths, a sundeck to laze on, or a spa pool to relax in.
We also offer daily escorted excursions “off the beaten track” to wineries, castles, markets or to see craftsmen at work.
Scotland, Ireland, England, and France all have some great courses including Royal Dornoch, Lahinch, Galway Bay, Wentworth, Sunningdale, and Cap d’Agde, which should be enough to inspire and challenge any keen golfer.
They also possess some magnificently scenic waterways, so why not combine the best of both worlds and book one of our unique, memorable golf cruises?
When you join this themed holiday, tee times can be arranged so that you have time to play a memorable round and still enjoy a relaxing cruise aboard your floating hotel with gourmet cuisine and fine wines.
On all of our golf cruises, a supplement is payable for each player to cover the cost of pre-booked tee times at the clubs.
A group may charter a barge for any date. Occasionally on specific hotel barges, individual cabin bookings may be made on specific dates where you will be able to join other like-minded people.
If no dates are available you may be wait-listed until other passengers show an interest in a golf cruise.
Note: A minimum of 4 passengers on these charters are required to play golf.
