Petit Futé's opinion on SOUTHBOUND SHIP
From the exceptional site of the 9 locks of Fonséranes, 5 commented cruises (1h to 3h) are proposed. For the longest, you will embark to discover the Malpas tunnel (173 m long), sail on a wild part of the canal to see the charming little port of Colombiers and you will finish the adventure by descending the 9 locks, a difference in level of 21.50 m very impressive when you are on board! A cultural and fun outing with these picnic cruises, to discover this Unesco heritage site. Game booklets for children
