DISCOVER Weaving their way like a thread across the tapestry of France and Portugal are the diverse and historic river systems which our Scenic Space-Ships have made their own. A country that has captivated hearts for centuries, you’ll find France is as diverse as it is beautiful, while a discovery of Portugal’s many gems will surprise and delight.

The Saône and Rhône Some of the country’s best-loved destinations are found in the South of France. Famous for its beautiful countryside, delicious fare and amazing architecture, you’ll enjoy a unique insight into this stunning part of the world.

Bordeaux waterways

Cruising the three waterways – the Gironde, Dordogne and Garonne – that wind their way across the Bordeaux region is simply breathtaking. Situated in the southwest of France, Bordeaux is a region synonymous with exquisite wines grown on its soil.

The Seine

The Seine River is the lifeblood of Paris, however the ‘city of light’ is just one of the highlights on a cruise along this splendid waterway. Steeped in war history, northern France is also home to epic works of art and a place of staggering beauty.

Portugal’s Douro River

The Douro is packed with revelations, from the archaeologically significant Côa Valley to viticultural attractions like the Vinhateiro region. It is a wonder how it has remained so relatively undiscovered.

Life on the river If you’ve never experienced river cruising before, prepare to fall in love with one of the greatest joys in the world. As your 5-star floating hotel cruises through some of the most iconic waterways of Europe, not only will you witness Mother Nature at her best, but also human engineering at its finest. Locked rivers Europe’s waterways are distinctive with varying water levels. To make traversing these waters seamless, water locks were invented. A lock is essentially an elevator with which ships can be raised or lowered to overcome the water level disparities. Europe’s waterways are replete with locks and the Saône and Rhône has 15 locks, some as high as 25 metres. The invention of the water locks is a true engineering marvel with Italian scientist and artist,

Leonardo da Vinci, pitching in to perfect the process. Watching your Captain expertly manoeuvre your Scenic Space-Ship through the narrow canals is a special treat that awaits you on board. Constant state of flux As with any other element of Mother Nature, rivers have personalities of their own. While we make every effort to plan our trips to the last degree, some days the water levels simply don’t cooperate. This leads to lock closures or difficulties passing under historic

and often low-slung bridges when water levels are either too high or too low. While our state-of-the-art Scenic Space-Ships are designed to convert easily to slide under all kinds of bridges, in times of unsuitable water levels, whether high or low, we always have a Plan B ready to activate. With local offices throughout Europe, we are well equipped to handle all navigation issues in a timely and efficient manner, with minimal disruption to your holiday plans.

A treasure trove of art The Museum of Fine Arts in Rouen is home to some of the most celebrated examples of European art, spanning the 16th to 20th centuries.

If Impressionist art gives you particular joy, don’t miss a visit to Claude Monet’s residence and gardens at Giverny. You’ll also have the opportunity to visit the museum of famed French novelist Victor Hugo in the village of Villequier. Author of Les Misérables and The Hunchback of Notre-Dame, he is a national treasure. A visit is made even more special with a cycle through sleepy riverside villages.

Somme battlefields and Normandy beaches A sobering counterpoint to the triumph of art and the beauty of classic architecture is the reminder that hundreds of thousands of lives were lost on the World War I battlefields of the Somme and Normandy’s D-Day landing beaches of WWII. These memorial areas are well preserved in respectful commemoration of the astonishing loss of human life the battles represented. Where the river meets the sea There’s something both spellbinding and exciting about reaching the point where a great river meets the sea. Honfleur is the location where the River Seine opens into the Atlantic at the English Channel and is a true highlight. With one of the prettiest harbours in France and an array of winding streets and colourful buildings, there is something to see around every corner.

Monet’s Garden, Giverny

There is something truly special about Monet’s Garden in Giverny, which he lovingly immortalised in his most famous paintings. Witness the colour and light of this lovely place – it’s sure to leave an impression.
