European Waterways is showcasing Europe’s golf courses, vineyards and countryside with themed tours on its hotel barges.

“Every European Waterways cruise is carefully designed to ensure travelers get a taste of all that the cruise region has to offer, from culinary and gastronomic fares, to historical and cultural attractions, as well as private tours that include vineyards and local food markets,” says Derek Banks, managing director of European Waterways. “A themed cruise ensures that you get even more of what you love most. But our guests are free to do as much or as little as they want.”

On the 8-passenger Scottish Highlander, travelers can take a golf-themed cruise (starting at $3,690 pp plus $800 for each person playing golf) through Scotland visiting golf courses such as Nairn Golf Club and the Fort Augustus G.C., in addition to touring Glen Nevis Whisky Distillery. On board the 12-passenger La Belle Epoque (starting at $4,750 pp) guests can take a “walking cruise” through the Burgundy region, visiting villages and castles. Lastly, guests on the 12-passenger L’Impressionniste and 8-passenger Anjodi can take a wine cruise through France visiting areas such as Cote de Beaune and cruising the Canal du Midi near the Mediterranean Sea.

In addition, the cruises can be chartered, such as the wine-themed L’Impressionniste cruise starting at $52,400. For more information, call (877) 879-8808 or visit gobarging.com.
