Enjoy this region fully electric in an environmentally friendly and quiet houseboat!
Start your boating holiday from Saverne in Alsace, a land of history and gastronomy. Choose to either cruise towards Strasbourg or towards Arzviller - famous for its boat lift (the only one in France). Beyond that, you get to the green Lorraine plateau and continue your cruise to Nancy, stopping on route at the superb Place Stanislas, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At Gondrexange you take the Canal de la Sarre which is dotted with lakes and water spots offering beaches, swimming, and watersports. From Harskirchen, location of our second base in Alsace (see our one way cruise option between Saverne and Harskirchen) you can cruise to Sarreguemines which is famous for its pottery or Saarbrücken which takes you just over the German border.
Lithium batteries on board are fast to charge with only two hours charging time needed to provide a cruising range of between six to eight hours, so enough for between a day and a day and a half of navigation. VNF’s fast charging terminals are located all along the waterways at approximately every 11km which mean you can stop wherever you want whenever you want.
VNF CHARGING TERMINAL** ** VNF charging terminals and their moorings are reserved exclusively for electric boats. *100% of the electricity supplied by EDF on the charging terminals is guaranteed to be renewable (source VNF)
Price is calculated for 4 guests. Boat hire will be 4 x individual
