CYCLING & WALKING
Passengers are welcome to walk or cycle using the on board bicycles as
often as they like. Most people choose to disembark the barge at a lock
and then visit local villages and then return to the canal and meet the
barge a little further along. The barge travels very slowly and
therefore "catch up" will not be a problem.
HOT AIR BALLOON
If you are chartering, the itinerary can be adapted to suit your
group's particular needs. If an excursion is within a reasonable
distance of the barge, inquire and we will do everything we can to arrange it.
Please advise Paradise Connections well in advance.
FOR THOSE NOT
WISHING TO ATTEND EXCURSIONS
You are welcome to stay behind on the barge if you would like. You can

PASSENGERS WITH MOBILITY RESTRICTIONS

Our barges have a strict non-smoking policy. We ask smokers not to

shipmates. Smoking is categorically not permitted in the
cabins for safety reasons. If you would like to smoke we request
that you smoke outside on deck away from fellow passengers.
