The Burgundy Canal du Nivernais follows the Yonne valley and is intertwined with the river Yonne itself. Constructed between 1784 and 1843 to transport firewood and produce to Paris. All the commercial trade has ceased and the canal is now renowned for its tranquillity, historic towns & villages, and famous vineyards. Cruise the most picturesque canal in France and our most popular route.
The river Yonne flows north to the Seine at Montereau, where it is the greater of the two rivers. An important trade route for centuries transporting wine, timber, and stone to an ever expanding Paris. Now it is a quiet, meandering, and picturesque river set within a valley of wooded hillsides, historic towns, and famous vineyards. Travel in the footsteps of impressionist artists Turner and Sisley along this beautiful river.
