Active & Discovery on the Seine with 2 Nights in Saint-Malo and excursion to Mont St. Michel (Northbound)

Summary

Begin your panoramic French river cruise on the Seine with a visit to Paris—"The City of Light.” Discover the true heart of Paris on a guided walk through the sites of Paris’ rich history, or explore the city by bike or enjoy a walking food tour. Cruise to Conflans and choose between an excursion to visit Auvers-sur-Oise or Napoleon and Josephine’s Château de Malmaison. As an alternative, you may want to join an e-bike tour to the Château de Maisons-Lafitte or learn how to prepare a Chantilly cream. In Vernon enjoy a food walking tour. Alternatively, enjoy a guided kayak tour.

Your river cruise on the Seine sails on to Les Andelys where you have plenty of choices, from a guided tour to a hike experience or a visit to Lyons-la-Forêt. Continue to Rouen for a walking tour of the village where Joan of Arc was martyred, as well as the Notre-Dame Cathedral, and Astronomical Clock. You’ll cruise to Caudebec and take an excursion to Normandy. Choose from a selection of excursions, including a tour of the WWII landing beaches at Normandy, with the memorials and monuments to the allied forces, or a “A Day in Normandy” tour to trace the steps of William the Conqueror, King Henry IV, and Queen Marie de' Medici. In Le Havre you can choose between a city sightseeing, a bike tour or a visit to the Palais Bénédictine in Fécamp. You’ll transfer to Mont St. Michel for a guided tour of the magnificent abbey, one of the first UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Next day enjoy a city sightseeing in Saint-Malo and a tasting of local products in Nielles. Next day, visit the Notre-Dame de Chartres cathedral. Your French river cruise concludes with a transfer to Paris for an overnight stay to celebrate your Seine River experience.
