Covid-19 update

Travel into France is managed within a traffic light system and will depend on whether you are double vaccinated.  This is subject to change so please do visit the French diplomatic website for up to date entry requirements  and your home nations' colour coding.

Once in France there continues to be some safety measures in place to control the spread of the virus, but these again are subject to change.  Please do visit this French government website for the current situation.

On a more personal note, both of us are double vaccinated against Covid-19 and we ensure a minimum of 72 hours between Barging Experiences to allow deep cleaning of the entire barge.

2021 Availability

There are a limited number of training dates available during October as shown below.  The canals in the South West of France close for winter and our schedule reflects the VNF works programme.

As travel and entry into France is at risk of change any of our reserved dates may be released at short notice.  If you would like to be included in our scheduling for 2021 should a last minute slot become available, please do drop us an email so we can get in touch.

2022 Barging Experience timetable

As the current season draws to a close, we have now released our 2022 schedule.  Early completed reservations* for 2022 will be secured at 2021 prices (*dates confirmed and deposit paid before 31 December 2021).

To view our 2022 schedule either select the appropriate month from the drop down box, or 'click' the arrow right to move the calendar to next year.

 

The dates published on this availability calendar are for the actual training dates of 2 or 3 days, for either couples or solos.  For our Barging Experience most guests arrive the evening before the training begins and stay onboard after the final day training, leaving us after breakfast the following morning, but the choice is yours.

Do drop us an email of with a brief outline of your requirements and include your nationality and residency so we can validate your eligibility to access the ICC from us.

The display can be advanced to show later months using the arrow at the top right hand side of the calendar.
