Boating Holidays & Vacations

A wide choice of self-drive boating holidays & vacations with Viking Afloat throughout the Waterways, (Canals and Rivers) of England and Wales.

boating holiday with Viking Afloat.Viking Afloat will introduce you to one of Britain's best kept secrets, the 2000 mile network of waterways and navigations, for which the canal boat was specially designed, that meander across some of the most beautiful countryside, and past pubs, cottages and warehouses. Here you will discover the Britain most tourists miss on their holidays.

We will introduce you to Viking Afloat one of Britain's largest and most successful Independent holiday operators. First time boaters are given a friendly welcome by everybody on the canal. But you won't be inexperienced for very long, for within a short time you will be gliding serenely around the first bend into a whole new and different world.

The specially designed canal boats are easy to handle and of course, everything happens at a relaxed pace.  You will be given all the instruction you need by the holiday company and will soon head off on your very own adventure like a seasoned boater.

Your canal boat will be fully equipped with every modern amenity, so self-catering becomes a pleasure, but there are also many canalside pubs, once essential 'staging posts' for the working boats of the last century, which are now popular watering holes for holiday boaters; and most offer great food at reasonable prices.

Two thousand miles of tranquil waterways, threading their way through some of Britain's most beautiful and unspoiled countryside, offering a haven for wildlife and an insight into our industrial heritage.  A network of waterways taking you to the heart of major cities, with all the entertainment and leisure facilities that they provide.
