The best way to discover the distinct charm of the countryside is to go on a road and water trip. For first-time tourists and history buffs, take a countryside tour to cover the must-see sights. There were various hills around the island submerged under water. Getting there means an uphill climb, a small price to pay for the spectacular view that awaits. The climb up the deck – and back down again – will surely work up an appetite for the next activity: enjoying your lunch on this special Canal Boat Breaks. But before the boarding of the boat, make a stopover at one of the local areas located by the river bend to see the wildlife and various species of birds. Make sure you take a camera so you can get the full story captured, also take home delights and souvenirs, so you can have something to remember the time you had away and the historic landmarks.
On the river cruise, tourists can enjoy a range of traditional dishes while being serenaded with folk songs by local singers in the pubs. Take time out to enjoy the local hospitality even though your canal boat is self catering, it is all part of the experience. The distance you travel depends on how long you have hired the boat for and it is time for the boat to turn around and make its way back after spending three or four nights, or a week or more away. The Canal Boat Breaks offers the same food and entertainment package, but offers an even more scenic view of the country’s lush woodlands. This cruise-like adventure makes a stopover at one of the local villages, where guests can get off the boat and get to know the areas way of life and the people as they showcase they enjoy a drink or some food. On the way back, make a stop at the tourist attractions, or just spend a gently day meandering the canal network. There is plenty to see and do including museums containing relics from centuries past. At an amazing amount of liturgical materials has been preserved.
You will soon find that a day of exploring through the Canal Boat Breaks is not enough to uncover all the countryside’s charm, but you will need another day or two to explore the wonderful site that is beyond postcard pretty.
