Rhône river cruises : Provence and Camargue

CroisiEurope cruises on the Rhône and Saône rivers help you discover Southern France and its wealthy cultural, natural, gastronomic, traditional, and historical background.

 

From the Camargue to the Ardèche gorges, via the Vercors massif, cruises on the Rhone from Lyon to Martigues or, in the reverse itinerary, from Martigues to Lyon, offer you a journey in the heart of some of the most beautiful and most preserved landscapes of France. You will have the opportunity to discover in one journey some of the most beautiful and traditional cities such as: Arles, Montelimar, Valencia, Lyon, the gastronomic capital of France, but also Avignon and its legendary bridge. Discover the surroundings that inspired artists like Van Gogh, Cezanne or Chagall, sip Beaujolais wine in its own terroir, stroll through historic towns, Roman ruins, and enchanting rural landscapes.

 

With such wonderful scenery, vine-covered hillsides, and picturesque villages, we could not resist designing a hiking itinerary to help you discover everything the Rhone Valley has to offer.

 

In addition, we also designed unique and themed cruises such as the Beaujolais Nouveau Tasting festival cruise for our wine and culture lovers to greet with us the annual release of Beaujolais Nouveau in November. Or join us for the Lavender & Mantras Cruise, aimed at people looking for subtle wellness, organic food, and relaxation, with optional partake at gentle Yoga, Mindfulness and Mediation sessions.
