A Scenic river cruise gives you the chance to experience the culture, history and life of France first hand. Unveil the country’s heartbeat with exclusive visits to some of the oldest and most-celebrated châteaux, palaces and vineyards.

Brand new for 2018, our latest additions offer rare insights into the France of past and present, showcasing the rich histories and traditions of each destination you visit. From a classical concert at Château d’Agassac, one of the region’s oldest wine-making establishments, to our very own cabaret production under Lyon’s Big Top, Scenic Rouge, enrich your experiences with a collection of enlightening cultural adventures you’ll never forget. And the best part – they’re all exclusive to Scenic.

At the end of the day, why not bask in some of France’s most beautiful and iconic locations as part of our exclusive Sundowners cocktail events? Along with your fellow guests, enjoy the sunset overlooking the country’s most spectacular landscapes. Take a trip to stunning Tournon Castle for an evening aperitif accompanied by local musicians, or experience the sprawling Château Siaurac wine estate, with a delicious vintage in hand as the sun dips below the horizon.

Château d’Agassac – New for 2018

 

The spectacular surroundings of the Médoc countryside are the setting for your exclusive evening of classical music in ancient Château d’Agassac, one of the oldest wine-making establishments in the country.
