From December 2, 2023, to January 3, 2024, our "Vieux Paris" cruise transforms into a Christmas Afternoon Tea Cruise on the Canal Saint-Martin.

Take advantage of the Christmas holidays to introduce children to the passage of locks, the underground vault of the Bastille, the rotating or lifting bridges, aboard a warmly decorated boat for the occasion. During the cruise, you'll enjoy traditional honey gingerbread accompanied by some treats to stay in the spirit of the year-end holidays, and you'll warm up with a complimentary hot drink: chocolate or mulled wine. Everything is included!

An original, cultural, and friendly moment to experience with the family!

You will discover the Saint-Martin canal with its calm waters, lined with hundred-year-old trees and spanned by elegant footbridges, then you will glide under the mysterious and spectacular Bastille vault, where the light is magical...
You will pass through the swirling waters of 4 double locks, 2 revolving bridges, relive the “atmosphere” of the Hôtel du Nord from the famous Marcel Carné film with Arletty and Louis Jouvet and share the pleasure of the walkers strolling along the banks lined with shops and trendy bars/cafes.
Before arriving at the Parc de la Villette (Cité des Sciences, the Géode, the Cité de la musique, themed Gardens), you will cross the Bassin de la Villette, formerly a trading port and now redeveloped to form the setting for the Rotonde de la Villette and you will pass under the amazing Crimée drawbridge.
