Le Boat adds new Canadian route

Le Boat has expanded its boating network to include the Trent-Severn Waterway in Canada.

The new itinerary, which will be available in May 2024, explores the Trent-Severn Waterway and Kawartha Lakes. 

The boat will set sail from Horseshoe Bay Marina, Le Boat’s Peterborough base. Guests can board one of eight Premier Horizon cruisers, with two to four bedrooms. Travellers can choose between a three-to-six- or a seven-to-ten-night trip. 

Highlights include 37 conventional locks and two of the world’s hydraulic lift locks. The canal also offers the Big Chute, the only marine railway of its kind and an engineering marvel in North America. There are five historic locks that are still operated by hand.

Plus, intrepid guests can also go kayaking, canoeing or SUPing (stand-up paddleboarding).

A seven-night self-catered stay on the Trent Severn Waterway and Kawartha Lakes cruise is £1,889 based on five people. Prices include renting a Horizon 2 boat and its equipment; a fully equipped gallery (kitchen); towels and linen; a boat-handling demo; technical support; onboard cruising information and mooring fees.

Cheryl Brown, Managing Director at Le Boat, said: “The Trent-Severn Waterway has been connecting people and places for generations, so we are delighted to be introducing this magical new destination as our second option outside Europe.”

“We know that Le Boat customers relish the opportunity our luxury boats offer them, to explore enchanting waterways at a leisurely pace whilst keeping their family fully entertained. We are confident our new route will provide the perfect combination of natural beauty and fascinating history to help travellers relax and unwind in the heart of Ontario Cottage Country”.

Bookings for the annual boating season, which will run from May to October, are on sale now.
