The Canal de Bourgogne or
Burgundy Canal provides north

and connects the Atlantic
Ocean with the Mediterranean Sea
through the Rivers Seine and
Yonne to the north, and the rivers
Rhone and Saone to the south.
The area traversed by the canal is
some of the most scenic in
France and includes rolling farm
country, small villages built
in the 11th century, and imposing
hilltop castles and chateaus
of the Medieval period
The barge will carry bikes on
board for the passengers to
bike the farm roads and visit
the wine region villages.
A van will follow and provide
transportation to the villages
and allow the passengers and
crew to shop for the local
wines in the villages.
Much of the canal remains just
the way it was when
constructed in the 17th Century;
the locks operate by
hand for the most part and the
locking through process
can involve the passengers.
Building of the canal started with a plan in completely until 1832, when barges made the first crossing.

The weather in Burgundy is temperate March and April (50-75 F) Showers could come in any month but will be of short duration. Weather is good in September October, great months to visit.
From April to mid May the barge tours and hotels will not be booked solid so prices are lowered. Mid July and all of August can also offer lower prices because much of France goes on a six-week vacation. The last two weeks of October can be low season and the end of the cruise season for some providers.
Hotels in the area and barge trips have their high season, mid May to Mid July and early September to mid October.
