A day on the water
On the barge, Aslaug
Kurt and Bente take you on board their lovely barge for a trip from Amiens to Corbie (or vice versa). Everything is included. The day begins at 10am with a welcome-breakfast served on one of the boat's two terraces. You can enjoy seeing the floating gardens of the Hortillonnages, discover the fully refurbished lock keeper's house at Lamotte-Bretière. Time passes slowly, punctuated by manoeuvres to go through the different locks. The day ends at 4.30pm. Kurt and Bente dock at the destination port and you return by train.
