A River Seine cruise offers beautiful scenery, from romantic Paris to bucolic Normandy and historic Rouen to the pretty port of Honfleur. Gastronomic delights and wine tours add to the appeal.
The Seine runs for nearly 486 miles, rising at Saint-Seine near Dijon, in the Langres plateau, before flowing through Paris and into the English Channel at Le Havre.
Over sixty percent of its length, as far as Burgundy, is negotiable by commercial riverboats and nearly its whole length is available for recreational boating and river cruises. As a result, a river Seine Cruise introduces visitors to varied experiences of France; time spent cruising through idyllic French countryside is countered by a journey through metropolitan areas on a Paris river cruise.
From the iconic landmarks of the city of romance like the Cathedral Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower, to the luscious forests and flourishing orchards of rural Normandy, this offers a cruise experience that promises not to disappoint.
As well as the city of Paris, a Seine cruise on-board one of our beautiful vessels also visits the idyllic fishing village of Honfleur, a settlement which boasts immense history and is highly rated for its wealth of Norman architecture.
