Get back to nature with a self drive cruise in Europe. What better way to discover a country... it's culture, history, customs, architecture, wildlife, scenery, villages and towns, food and wine than by cruising along some of the thousands of kilometers waiting to be explored. Hop off for a spot of cycling, hiking or exploring, then back on board for some more cruising before ending your day with an alfresco meal as the sun sets, or a cosy supper in the saloon. Each day brings its own adventures... no stress, just fun all the way. Whatever your budget and interests, whether cruising as a couple, family or as many as 12 friends, we'll find the perfect boating vacation for you.More information about SELF DRIVE PACKAGES
