Itinerary 

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:

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.

Kayaking, Rafting, Pot Holing and Rock Climbing
All of the above are available at the delightful Eaurizon Base Nautique on the scenic River Aude. 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).

Goat’s Cheese Farm at Combebelle
Come and meet the goats! At this wonderfully rustic shop and barn you can sample an array of different cheeses and even head out back to the milking parlour to play with the goats and watch how the milking process is done.

Swimming
It being the Mediterranean, there are no shortage of swimming opportunities, from freshwater lakes such as the Lac de Jouarres and the picturesque Lac de la Cavayère near Carcassonne to the warm, lengthy beaches of Narbonne and the Saint-Pierre La Mer, Fleury. Should you wish, there is also an indoor pool available in Narbonne.

Ice Skating, Bowling & Go Karting
In the unlikely event the weather isn’t favourable, there are plenty of activities on offer to keep the kids entertained at this leisure centre in Narbonne, including ice skating, bowling and go karting, as well as an Olympic size swimming pool so you can splash the day away!

Richard de Bas Paper Mill & Workshop
The mill, restored by Marius Péraudeau in 1941 was the first living museum in France. The paper mill still functions today, with 200 to 300 hand-made pieces of paper made each day, using the traditional artisanal methods of the 15th century. Here, you can try your hand at paper making or follow the paper maker’s trail along the streams and mills of the valley.

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:

Horse Riding (2+ Years)
Pony & Horse Riding is available through the vineyards and alongside the Canal du Midi. Two tariffs are available, for one or two hours. Pony treks are also available for younger or novice riders and are for either 15 or 30 minutes duration. (Supplement Payable).

Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements.

*Activities are payable by the passenger directly to the provider, whose individual terms and conditions apply.
All activities are subject to availability. Children’s bicycles, bicycle helmets, child car seats and high-chairs are all available without cost.
