Le Boat


Get away on a Staycation in Canada

Les vacances fluviales avec Le BoatThe Rideau Canal is a specular waterway of private islands, sandy beaches, protected wetlands, peppered with small artisan villages along the way. The 202km of continuous waterway stretches from Kingston to Ottawa and is a vast network of pristine lakes, winding rivers and canals, all connected by a historical lock system.


Why Le Boat?

If you’ve never been on a boating holiday before, the concept is simple. We provide you with a boat, which will be your home and transport for the duration of your holiday. Pick it up from one of our many bases, situated along some of the most beautiful waterways in Europe and Canada, and the rest is entirely up to you. Go where you want; do as you please. The only requirement is that you return it back to the base on time.
