France

The largest network of inland waterways in Europe invites inland boaters with a wide variety of landscapes and beautiful sights.There are 9000km available to water sports enthusiasts. In recent years, a lot has been invested in harbors and attractive moorings to strengthen this local recreational value. Of course, there is also commercial shipping and freight traffic, but as long as the local inland navigation rules are followed, coexistence should be possible. The busiest waterways are the Rhine, Seine, Moselle, Saone and Rhone. For anyone who likes it quieter, there are plenty of other canals. Whether by motorboat, houseboat, sailboat or canoe and kayak, the inland waterways of France are an Eldorado for every inland captain.
