Ancient castles, fragrant lavender fields and lush vineyards await on this 8-day river cruise from Arles to Lyon. Journeying north on the Rhône, explore timeless heritage cities like Avignon, Tournon and Chalon-sur- Saône.

The enriching wonders of southern France are revealed on the banks of the Rhône, whose enduring flow connects historic towns, cities and regions influenced by many different cultures and civilisations. Over the course of this 8-day itinerary, you’ll journey north from Arles, the capital of Provence, through a patchwork of lavender fields and vineyards, enjoying daily stops in iconic destinations like Avignon, Tournon, Mâcon and Chalon-Sur-Saône. On the final day of your river cruise, you’ll explore Lyon, France’s third largest city, whose historic centre is lined with ancient cobblestone streets and relics from its time as a major Roman capital. Other highlights to look forward to during this unforgettable river journey include a visit to Avignon’s magnificent Palais des Pape, a walking tour of Tournon and its imposing 16th-century castle, and a trip to Chalon-Sur-Saône, which lies at the centre of the prestigious Burgundy wine region.
