Active & Discovery on the Rhône with 2 Nights in Paris (Northbound)

Summary

Your Active & Discovery Rhône River cruise is full of Avalon Choice® inclusions for each port you visit. Choose from Active, Classic, and Discovery included excursions that speak to you—from casual and leisurely to cultural and active. In addition to classic sightseeing and relaxed free time, you can visit an oyster farm, bike through Camargue Regional Nature Park to spot flamingos, or take a painting workshop in Arles—in the style of Van Gogh. Take a kayak excursion or linger in a corner cafés; stroll in Avignon’s papal palace or attend a wine tasting in an underground cave. Admire the lovely views of the French countryside, join a culinary walk to discover architecture and local specialties, or take a cooking class in Lyon. With so many included choices, you’ll find the perfect way to spend your day your way— from active pursuits to cuisine and cultural experiences. Take a ghost tour in Viviers, take a guided bike ride through the Gard region, or indulge in a chocolate factory tour.

What better way to celebrate a fantastic French river cruise on the Rhône than by boarding a high-speed train for the “City of Light?” You’ll spend two nights in Paris to explore the romantic city your way. Spend your first day at leisure strolling the iconic Champs-Élysées or wandering through the legendary artists’ streets of Montmartre. The next day, select a guided sightseeing tour of the must-see sites, or take a guided biking tour through Paris’ highlights, including the Eiffel Tower and Place de la Concorde—with a peaceful rest along the Seine River. Our Active & Discovery Rhône River cruise and Paris vacation include activities and excursions to experience the Rhône River and the “City of Light” your way and at your pace!
