Boating and Cruises in Bordeaux
Bordeaux which is a fluvial city, was one of the major 18th century ports of Europe. Bordeaux’s city and its vineyards are rediscovering their river Garonne. The boat is a smart way to discover the city, its vineyards and the river’s estuary. Boasting exceptional wine, spectacular scenery and the largest urban World Heritage-listed site, the Bordeaux region is the ideal destination for a luxury river cruise.
The Garonne and the Dordogne rivers, the two rivers that lead into Western Europe’s largest estuary each have their own alluring attractions and picturesque ports. But it is undoubtedly the exceptional wine produced just beyond the riverbanks that is the region’s most coveted gem.
The "Bordeaux River Cruise" company, based in Bordeaux, runs cruises on the Garonne and Dordogne rivers and the Gironde estuary. Embark on the "Bordeaux river" for a voyage of discovery to the beauty spots of Aquitaine : the famous Bordeaux vineyards (St Emilion, Médoc, Sauternes, Côtes de Bourg, etc.), and UNESCO World Heritage sites like the Blaye Citadel, a fortress designed by Vauban.
Discover an exceptional region as you cruise along the mighty rivers of the Gironde, the Garonne and Dordogne. The Bordeaux region lies near the Atlantic coast, in the south west of France. It spreads 60 miles around the city on the biggest estuary in Europe along these 3 rivers (Gironde, Garonne, Dordogne), creating the appropriate setting for wine. With 7,000 chateaux, Bordeaux is the most important wine producing region in France.
