Immortalised by artists and writers alike and a paradise for lovers of haute cuisine and fine wine, the Rhône Valley provides a relaxing and tranquil setting for a river cruise.

Soak up the ancient charm of unspoilt towns and villages and experience first hand some of the region's finest wines and gastronomic delights. Cruise on an unforgettable journey through sun-drenched vineyards, passing ancient cities and peaceful villages nestling in the lavender-scented hills of Provence.
