Our journey through France explores the unrivalled natural beauty of the Rhône river as it runs its course through sun-soaked landscapes from Lyon to Avignon. We'll step ashore to explore a beautifully restored historic garden and discover the gorgeous vistas and charming parks that inspired the artistic genius of Van Gogh. And wander through Lyon, Vienne and Beaune with an expert local guide. As we pass verdant terraced vineyards, enjoy the beautiful fragrance of Provençal lavender and gaze in awe at the stunning Ardèche Gorge and its remarkable suspended gardens - all accompanied by a glass or two of Burgundy's finest wine.

Our popular Burgundy, the River Rhône and Provence river cruise has been reimagined to include even more of the natural beauty this region is known for – perfect for nature lovers.
