Time lapse: riding on a Parisian canal boat

Riding on the Seine or among the canals of Paris is a token requirement when visiting the city of lights. Even though it can be touristy and cold, there’s nothing like seeing Notre Dame from a deep, low perspective, watching young lovers mingle on Pont Neuf or enjoying the quiet rev of the boat’s engine.

If you’ve ever considered the less-popular canal tours but don’t know what it’s like, check out this time lapse video of a canal ride through Saint Martin. Over the two hours you can see the lights from the boat illuminate the surrounding city, from roaming Parisians to low ceiling tunnels. It’s also fun watching the locks fill in super high speed.
