5 Great Locations for a Boating Holiday

Llangollen Canal, North Wales

Now I know the first one on this list would have been expected to be somewhere hot and abroad, but a boating holiday in North Wales is not one to be missed. Travelling through miles and miles of breathtaking Welsh countryside and all of the quaint Welsh towns, it would be great for those wanting an extremely relaxed holiday away from the hustle and bustle of the city. My advice would be to sit back, enjoy the countryside and maybe a pint with a pub lunch

River Thames

Another great option would be a boat trip along the Thames, slap bang in the middle of what is arguably the most interesting city in England you won’t be short of things to do. Travelling down the Thames is a great way to see the city all in one trip and with the option to stop off around London why not see the sights and go for a drink or a bite to eat in the huge range of bars or restaurants that are available


An obvious choice for a boating holiday would definitely be Venice, this city is truly remarkable and how romantic would it be to travel down the lakes in a cozy little boat with a glass of wine. It really is the stuff of dreams and should the opportunity arise to go I would definitely take it


Another great choice for a boating holiday would be Amsterdam, so much culture in such a unique city, the canals are a great way to travel and is definitely a place to go


Finally, one of the classier places for a boating holiday would have to be France, as a place in general France is an amazing place when it comes to the food and the wine and the views. When travelling by boat you are able to experience France in a whole new way
