Rhone river cruises

Discover France with Scenic

Before the days of trains and cars, the Rhône was a vital inland trade and transportation route. Today the waterway is favoured by river cruisers looking to make the journey from central France to the mouth of the Mediterranean.

Those fortunate enough to embark on a Rhône river cruise will be greeted by brightly coloured lavender fields, plentiful vineyards, ancient Roman ruins and idyllic French villages. In between the pastoral countryside you’ll discover the picturesque cities of Lyon and Avignon, as well as the iconic wine region of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Over the years, people and places along the Rhône have contributed to some of the world’s most significant artistic, culinary and cultural movements. This is your chance to experience them first hand.

Our 8 day Idyllic Rhône itinerary includes a truly unforgettable experience at the prestigious Popes’ Palace in Avignon. Enjoy a private classical music performance in the elegant Grand Tinel Room and experience virtuoso musicians performing Mozart, Strauss, Vivaldi and Beethoven in this unique setting.

New for 2017 – upgraded Space-Ships and Scenic Cullinaire.

When you sail on the Rhône in 2017, you’ll experience a new level of luxury not yet seen on these rivers of France. We’ve opened up public spaces, added a vitality pool, two new one-bedroom Royal Owner’s Suites and reduced the number of guests, for a more personalised level of service. One of the most exciting new elements of these ships will be our exclusive Scenic Cullinaire experience, allowing guests to participate in a series of on board cooking classes, taught by experts in our brand new private cooking emporium.
