weeks or longer. In addition, you have the opportunity to

Viking Afloat is a keenly competitive company
and our charges are fully inclusive of fuel, gas and VAT.

As part of our service, we provide everyone
with a full demonstration of the boat and its systems, as
well as teaching newcomers how to handle the boats and how
to operate the canal locks. Every one of our boats has on
board a comprehensive manual and we supply expert help around
the clock with a 24-hour emergency helpline. And you do not
have to just take our word for the quality of our boats, since
we insist that they are all inspected and graded every year
by the National Tourist Board (Visit Britain). [Click
