Luxury France River Cruises

DISCOVER Weaving their way like a thread across the tapestry of France is the diverse and historic river system which our Scenic Space-Ships have made their own. A country that has captivated hearts for centuries, with charming stone villages in the south, iconic wine-growing regions in the west and a poignant war history in the north, France is as diverse as it is beautiful. 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 rivers – 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.

WONDER We all strive to feel a closer connection with our surroundings, moments when we move beyond the physical and become truly emotionally engaged in an experience with all of our senses — a moment of wonder. Wonder is a personal emotion, it’s about the heart and the mind, joy, surprise, curiosity and awe. Wonder can be a whole day or a fleeting moment. Travel is about more than distance. It offers us not just a journey across the world to see new sights but to the heart of what it means to be human. It allows us to step outside our normal parameters and become enriched by what we encounter. It presents us with limitless possibilities to become more than we were before. At Scenic we celebrate the art of wonder through travel. Our aim is to elevate your trip from a mere holiday into a journey of discovery. Never lose your sense of wonder.

Discover

Bordeaux From centuries-old winemaking traditions to the great outdoors, Bordeaux is a region of many treasures, just waiting for you to uncover. Cruise along the three beautiful waterways of this region – the Gironde, Dordogne and Garonne – and discover extraordinary landscapes and some of France’s best drops. Breathtaking natural beauty With its network of freshwater lakes, expansive national parks and pristine beaches, Bordeaux is an enchanting mix of history and wilderness. Discover the unexpected as you hop on and off your Scenic Space-Ship when we dock in the heart of its cities and towns. On the northern tip of Europe’s longest coastal beach, Arcachon is home to the towering Dune du Pilat, reaching a height of 110 metres.

A class of its own Emperor Napoleon III was so taken with the quality of the area’s wines, he established a system of standards in 1855 as a way to recommend and reward excellence in winemaking. In the course of our journey through this beguiling part of France, you will have ample opportunity to taste several of these Grand Cru Class wines as well as the chance to explore the gastronomy of the region in our Scenic Culinaire cooking demonstration.

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. Impressionist art is particularly well represented, with works by Degas, Renoir, Monet and Pissarro on display. 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. The architecture of Château Vaux-le-Vicomte is a work of art in itself. Wander the magnificent halls and gardens, the inspiration for Louis XIV’s Palace of Versailles. C

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. Where the river Seine opens into the Atlantic at the English Channel, it feels appropriate to mark the occasion with a celebratory event. During an exclusive Sundowners cocktail event for Scenic guests you’ll enjoy the locally produced specialty Calvados apple brandy at the splendid estate of Manoir d’Apreval.

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.

From the city of dreams to the city of light Spain’s Barcelona is a city that has always seized the imagination, with its defining sense of style, and cultural monuments that are as avant garde as they are iconic.

Barcelona > Paris 3 Paris

France

Gaudi’s Cathedral of the Sagrada Familia, and the equally surreal Casa Batlló, capture the dream-like quirkiness of this lively city perfectly, and you’ll have ample opportunity to explore these and other magnificent Spanish landmarks. From there, it’s off to France, and dreams of another kind, as you cruise the romantic Rhône River, with its picturesque villages, and beautiful towns. Drift through a land of resplendent castles and awe-inspiring cathedrals before arriving in Paris, the ‘city of light’, which continues to populate the dreams and romantic imagination of those lucky enough to visit it. And with such breathtaking sites as the magnificent Champs Elysées, and the Eiffel Tower, it’s not very hard to see why.

Take a journey down a river of dreams The Seine isn’t the largest river in Europe, or even France, but it may be the most renowned – and for good reason. This splendid waterway cuts through the heart of Paris, before winding its way along some of the most celebrated sites in northern France. There are few superlatives that do justice to beautiful Paris, as you’ll have ample opportunity to discover. Beyond Paris, you can look forward to a serene cruise to Honfleur, by the open waters of the English Channel, pausing at the most beautiful landmarks along the way. Les Andelys, Rouen, Caudebec-en-Caux – all the key points in this itinerary showcase fine historic settings and beautiful environs.

A two-course feast for the senses A river cruise on the Seine offers visitors a smorgasbord of regional wonders. On this itinerary, however, that’s only the entrée. Your journey from Paris takes you down the Seine to fascinating riverside attractions. Some, like Lyons la Forêt, are simply beautiful beyond words. Others, such as Rouen, offer fascinating insights into history. From there you’ll journey on to beautiful Honfleur before returning to Paris and the many alluring destinations reserved for your return cruise. However, all that merely serves to whet your appetite for your second course, the beautiful Bordeaux region, with its delicious offerings of great food, fine wine, beautiful landscapes and centuries of high drama and historical intrigue.

A tale of two rivers Even with the sheer abundance of beautiful rivers to choose from, the Seine and Douro are two of Europe’s most tempting waterways. In many ways, both are like worlds unto themselves, providing spectacular regional beauty and a wealth of historic interest that would be hard to match anywhere. The Seine, which flows languidly towards the English Channel, boasts spectacular cathedrals, impressive limestone cliffs, flowering orchards and, not least, the grand architectural wonder of the ‘city of light’, magnificent Paris. The Douro begins its journey in vibrant Porto, Portugal’s second largest city before entering a land that time seems to have forgotten. Combine the two in one wonderful itinerary and you can look forward to enjoying a truly spectacular experience.
