Who are Freewheel Afloat?
If you are planning a Boating Holiday this year you have arrived at the right place to make the most important choices of your planning process.

A great way to relax
Canal holidays are a great way to unwind and enjoy some ‘down time’. Freewheel Afloat specialise in boating holidays in Europe with the focus on the waterways of France. The Canal du Midi remains as popular as ever - we also offer holidays across Burgundy, Brittany, Anjou South West France, Alsace-Lorraine and the Charente.

Many people come back again and again once they have tried and enjoyed the boating holiday formula. The freedom to travel at your own pace, the pleasures of the outdoor life, of eating and drinking al fresco, and of making your own discoveries in charming villages and towns en route are some of the ingredients which make a boating holiday special. The time to enjoy the company of friends in a shared activity is also what draws many.

Superb boats and bases
Freewheel Afloat offer you a superb selection of self-drive boating holidays in Europe. We have more than 40 types of boat, and 72 bases in 4 countries – France, Germany, Italy and England. We have a huge range of boating holidays in France which has an incredible choice of rivers and canals. The Canal du Midi and Burgundy lead the way, but there are many other regions offering excellent routes and places of interest. Aquitaine, Alsace, and Brittany all provide top quality river and canal cruising.

You will also find boating holidays in Germany, Italy and on the River Thames in England. How about cruising the rivers and lakes near Berlin, or the famous Venice Lagoon, or boating along the Thames between Windsor and Oxford?

We hope you find the right boating holiday from the wealth of choice available. The website can show you the locations and the vessels available. Please give our reservations team led by Yvonne and Cathy a call if you need further help. They’ll be delighted to assist.

Book early to get the best choice
This really is a holiday where booking early pays!  Simply because when a boat is reserved for a particular week it is gone and no longer available that week. Our canal boat holidays are becoming more and more popular so to get the best choice of boats and dates please contact us as soon as you can.

We look forward to serving you in 2014!
