Cruise the canals and waterways of Loire River on one of these 5 hand-picked barge cruises by Adventure Life. For a private cruising experience, charter an entire barge for your group (usually for 6-12 guests onboard). Alternatively, join a small group of individual travelers as you float in your cozy cabin by the charming villages and panoramic scenery of Loire River. With canals being Loire River's original highways for freight, many of today's hotel barges are traditional working freight vessels converted into exclusive floating boutique hotels complete with gourmet cuisine, fine wine, and accompanied with activities such as river cruises, wine tasting, cruises, village visits, and barge cruising. Similar to river cruises, barge cruises and hotel barges are for fewer passengers and offer a more intimate, upscale experience. Our barge cruise to Loire River in 2022 range in price from $3,802 to $64,000 for voyages of 7 days. Tell us about your ideal barge experience in Loire River and one of Adventure Life's Loire River travel specialists can help you design the perfect, seamless trip.
