Linking a raft of unique destinations in the Rhône-Alpes and Ardèche regions of south-eastern France, the Rhône offers travellers a convenient gateway to the hidden beauty of France.
Travel along this picturesque river with Great Rail Journeys and explore a landscape that inspired one of the most famous artists in the world, Vincent Van Gogh.
Whether you are interested in an itinerary stuffed with excursions and city tours or a more relaxing sight-seeing holiday, our range of tours along the Rhone offer something for every kind of traveller - and can be enjoyed at your leisure.
Our Rhône River Ships
Our cruise ships are designed to provide comfortable accommodation for our guests during their voyage along the Rhône. They boast a range of facilities such as a bar, restaurant, boutique, lounge and a sun deck.
These five-star vessels also have some luxurious amenities such as a library, indoor swimming pool, sauna, solarium and a whirlpool on the sundeck. France is the home of quality food and wine, and you can enjoy both while on the ship. Breakfast buffets, lunches, and multiple-course evening meals are created especially for our guests by an on-board chef - from local ingredients, where possible.
In both the four and five star ships, the cabins are spacious and decorated with large sight-seeing windows, allowing unobstructed views of the French countryside. These floating hotels have been designed especially to navigate rivers, making them more intimate than large cruise liners. Best of all, you'll only need to unpack your suitcase once!
Our river cruises stop up to three times a day, allowing guests time to explore their destination, relax on the ship, or enjoy shore excursions to local attractions, which may be included in the price of the holiday. Free days are also incorporated into our itineraries; why not visit the range of unique museums in the Ardèche region, such as the Museum of Lavender and the Archaeological Documentation Centre.
