The Hiking Cruise from Bouziès

"This unique half-boat half-hike concept is a great opportunity to merge two activities: sailing down the River Lot on a gabare and exploring an incredible towpath carved into the face of the cliff on foot. A beautiful outing!"

    A unique experience

    from the Port of Bouziès

    The HIKING cruise is a one-way 1-hour boat trip with the possibility of completing the other portion on foot via the famous cliff-side towpath in Bouziès (1 to1.5-hour hike along a flat, marked and shaded trail). A wonderful opportunity to experience the area from two complementary perspectives. Boat there and hike back, or the other way around - you decide!

    The boating portion of your excursion will take you back in time aboard a traditional gabare, while the hike will plunge you into the fauna and flora of the River Lot and give you a chance to get a closer look at the manual locks.

    This unique Nature experience is very popular among families, as well as hikers eager to explore this section of the road of Santiago de Compostela.
