If you are a family with children, a bespoke itinerary is created and a maximum of 4 excursions from the Classic Cruise Itinerary is substituted with your preferred family activities.
The following activities can usually be arranged on-board directly with the barge Captain and included in your itinerary without any extra charge, unless otherwise stated:
Aqualand Park – Cap d’Agde (3 years+)
Situated on the southern peninsula of the ancient seaside town of Agde, this outdoor water park includes a large pool, several slides, a wave pool and a shaded relaxation area.
Prehistoric Caves at Limoussis
The prehistoric Caves at Limoussis are a series of underground tunnels dating back over 100 years. They also boast the largest array of aragonite crystals in the world. A fair level of fitness is required as the paths within the cave are relatively steep.
Tennis & Badminton
The International Centre of Tennis in Agde has 22 exterior tennis courts – 4 with Astroturf, 12 with grass and 6 with clay. The centre also has 4 badminton courts.
Pirateland – Water Activities & Theme Park (3 years+)
An amusement park in the beach resort of Marseillan Plage, Pirateland features a waterpark, inflatable games and mini golf.
Oppidum d’Enserune – Pre-Roman Hilltop Settlement near Beziers
This fascinating pre-Roman site is one of the most important in Europe and is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. First settled by the Celts in the 6th century BC, this site was inhabited until the 1st century AD after the Roman invasion of the region. The site also offers gorgeous views over La Clape, the Mediterranean Sea and the dried lake of Montady.
Canoeing & Kayaking
This is the chance to canoe and kayak in the gorges of the Herault River. Several time durations are available during the cruise, depending on the time slot allocated by the barge’s itinerary – the whole day (more than 3 hours of activities), half a day (from 1½ to 3 hours) or a quick tour (from 1 to 2 hours).
Paintballing (8 years+)
Set within an 80 hectare forest, the Beziers Forest Adventure Park features a paintball facility with more than 120 wooden shelters and watchtowers, as well as other defences, for lifelike combat scenarios. You will be guided by professional instructors throughout the game. Novices will not be mixed with experienced players.
The Cap d’Agde International golf course offers three 9-hole courses which can be played individually or together and is suitable for golfers of all standards and ages. The courses are challenging yet enjoyable and some of the most prestigious in the Languedoc. (Supplement Payable).
Other activities* – shown below – can be arranged but, due to their nature, they should be booked directly by the passenger with the activity provider. These activities are:
