Short Breaks with Viking Afloat Waterway and Canal Boat Holidays


One of the most popular ways of trying out a boating holiday is by taking a special short break.


short breaks on the canals in narrowboats and canal boats

Weekend Breaks

You  start out on a Friday afternoon around 3.00 pm and following a full demonstration of how to handle the boat and work the locks (all very straightforward) you are off on a carefree 3 night break, exploring the real Britain.  Saturday and Sunday are yours to do with as you please and the only thing you really need to remember is that these Weekend breaks finish at 9.30 am on the Monday morning, when you have to hand the boat back to the boatyard.

Midweek Breaks

These equally popular breaks, have you cruising away from the boatyard around 3.00 pm on a Monday afternoon and the good news is that you don't have to be back until Friday morning at 9.30 am!  This gives you a full four nights away and yet the price is exactly the same as for the Weekend. 


Both type of breaks give you the chance to explore some of Britain's 2,000 miles of unspoilt, 200 hundred year old waterway system. 

You can cruise out into the idyllic countryside, or visit historic Cities, discovering a whole new world around every bend.
