Ardennes & Alsace-Lorraine Region Details

The land of forests, the Ardennes, can also be discovered from our Pénichettes and give you the chance of an exceptional cruise full of oxygen. In Alsace, you pass by small cities and villages with garlanded balconies right into the center of Strasbourg.

In Lorraine, the boat lift in Arzviller is a unique curiosity in Europe to be best experienced with our Pénichettes. Locaboat offers you boat trips on the following waterways: Canal de la Marne au Rhin, Canal de la Sarre, Moselle, Canal des Vosges, canal de l'Est, Canal des Ardennes, Meuse, Canal de l'Est, Meuse, Canal de l'Aisne à la Marne.

GASTRONOMY IN ARDENNES

The game-rich region of the Ardennes offers many game specialities. Pies, ham and sausages complete the offer. Famous are the ham from the Ardennes, but connoisseurs prefer the white sausage, a typical speciality, produced by local butchers. Undisputed capital of white sausage is Rethel, a must for any houseboat vacationers, but also the white sausages Fumay are excellent. A gourmet festival is held there in its honor every year in July.

In any case, Gourmets should follow the canal de l'Aisne la Marne and cruise towards Champagne. In Epernay and Reims, the former coronation city of French rulers, you can try champagne. One learns that this fine beverage is served and drunk at every opportunity: As an appetizer, to accompany a meal or a dessert, such as the light 'Biscuit de Reims'.
