Rhône River Cruises

One of Europe’s largest and most famous rivers, the Rhône winds its way from the Alps through Lake Geneva and into France, lazily curving through beautiful landscapes until it meets the Mediterranean at Camargue. Experience the delights of southern France with one of our Rhône river cruises, taking in the vineyards of Burgundy, the charms of Lyon and Vienne, and the incredible history of Avignon and the Pont du Gard.

What to Expect on a Rhône River Cruise


Although the Rhône river meanders 813km from the Swiss Alps to the Mediterranean Sea, most cruises focus on a shorter stretch through idyllic French countryside – from the foodie capital of Lyon to beautiful Beaune, then continuing via Vienne towards Arles and Avignon. Much loved by first-timers and seasoned travellers, will you embark on a Rhône river cruise next?
