Tuition is included in all Drifters holiday packages and if you’ve never been on a canal boat holiday, there couldn’t be a better time to try it. Managed by the charity the Canal & River Trust, Britain’s waterway network is enjoying an incredible renaissance with hundreds of miles of waterways restored in recent years, and over 2,000 miles of fabulous navigable waterways to choose from.Britain’s canals and rivers run through many miles of beautiful unspoilt countryside, as well as passing pretty villages with historic canalside pubs, and finding their way into the regenerated heart of many cities.
The fact that you take your holiday home with you as you travel, and that you can stop more or less where you wish, means you can tailor your holiday adventure to suit your tastes. The countryside looks so different from the wonderful viewpoint of the water that there is a potential adventure round each bend.
On a canal boat holiday you will discover so much more about our wildlife and countryside as you drift along, leaving everyday cares behind.
The world of the waterways is a place of its own, in some ways it is a way to slip back in time, but with a modern boat. Drifters boats are all fully equipped with essential mod cons, including central heating, hot water, TV, fully-equipped kitchens, showers and flushing toilets. And some offer five star accommodation, with extras like WiFi, wider beds, larger showers and solid-fuel stoves.
