European Waterways Inspires Virtual Wanderlust in New Series Exploring Hotel Barge Cruising Routes in France and Scotland

June 24, 2020 River Cruising No Comments Email Email

European Waterways is looking to inspire virtual wanderlust with the launch of its brand-new six-part travel series that takes viewers on exclusive digital excursions exploring the history, culture and cuisine of the company’s luxury hotel barges’ scenic cruising routes in France and Scotland.

Sailing the canals and smaller waterways of the European countryside, the in-depth tours cover many of Europe’s famous attractions, from the hilltop medieval fortified city of Carcassonne and Chablis wine country, to the grandeur of the Scottish Highlands.

European Waterways’ virtual tours include visits to the Palace of Fontainebleau and historic sites such as Scotland’s Cawdor Castle, the inspiration for Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Real-life hotel barge cruise director Matthew Price brings his personable warmth and enthusiasm as host for the armchair travel series, which can be viewed at

“Nothing quite compares to enjoying a glass of fine wine on the deck of a luxury hotel barge, watching the peaceful European countryside roll slowly by,” said Derek Banks, managing director of European Waterways. “Until our guests can travel again, we invite them to indulge their wanderlust by savoring the next best thing – inspiring virtual tours that take them into the heart and soul of the Europe we explore on all our cruises – its beautiful countryside, its people, its cuisine, and its remarkable and diverse culture.”

The first virtual tour, available now, highlights Carcassonne, a fortified medieval city perched on the hilltop above the Aude River in the South of France.  Matthew takes viewers back to its origin in the third century AD and the times of the Romans.

The second virtual tour visits the picturesque town of Chablis in France, famed for its white wine. Viewers travel back to its Roman and Viking past and watch its emergence on the world stage with the discovery of the viticulture of the region.

European Waterways’ luxury hotel barge cruises feature private tours of historic castles and royal estates, wine tasting excursions, and exclusive “meet and greet” opportunities such as a private hosted lunch with a Baroness in her 12th century château.
