The canals pass through peaceful and picturesque countryside. This is reflected in the pace of the boats. In general, the maximum speed on the canal is 8km/h and you should expect to average around 6km/h. A canal cruise is an opportunity to slow down, enjoy the countryside, and respect the nature. Each day, a few hours cruising is sufficient to give you a change of scenery, and the choice of mooring the boat either in the towns or villages, or in the middle of the countryside against the tow-path, wherever the mood takes you.
