The only 12-passenger barge on this extraordinary cruise route, this handsome vessel cruises through the pristine countryside and world-famous vineyards of Burgundy’s iconic Cote d’Or. Informal in ambiance yet upscale in accommodations, the L’Impressionniste offers the most delightful of floating homes in which to celebrate the abundant beauty of Burgundy!
The lovely cabins range in size and bed configurations, ensuring the perfect stateroom for everyone. Designed for maximum comfort and relaxed socializing, the barge’s spacious salon and dining area is the social center of the vessel, reflecting the convivial ambiance on this warm and welcoming barge. When guests are not lounging in the hot tub or relaxing on the expansive deck, the canal’s towpath beckons for a leisurely walk or a casual bicycle ride.

I'm planning a horse holiday in the Canadian mountains. Trail rides and learning Chris Irwin techniques. Cost is CAD 1690 pp if it is a shared room. There are 3 options that week of all learning, all exploring or a combination. I plan on doing the combination. There is great hiking there I'd love to do as well.
