Oise, Seine and Paris Canals cruise

September 20-25, 2022

IWI member Backwaters Cruising Ltd is offering to IWI members an exclusive and spectacular 5-day, 5-night cruise on board the barge Natalia in the Île-de-France region of France, including cruising through Paris in both directions on the last day. The cruise starts at Port-Cergy on the river Oise and follows the itinerary shown on this map. The cruise will cover 110 km of waterways and 19 locks, while accommodation will be 2 nights in Port Cergy and 3 nights in Paris-La Villette in the Ibis hotel overlooking the junction of the three Paris canals. Except for the transfer with luggage between the two hotels (dropping us off at Reuil-Malmaison to rejoin the barge), all transfers will be by public transport (RER express metro and tramway).
