France River Cruise - Avalon Waterways®

France River Cruises

An Avalon river cruise through France is an exquisite and timeless journey unlike any other.

On our Seine river cruises, you'll experience the best of urban and rural French culture, from the burlesque cabarets of Paris to the medieval towns along the shoreline and the breathtaking scenery in between.

Our Rhône river cruises are just as classic and sophisticated, with a slightly different flavor. Featuring sweeping views of lavender fields and rolling hills dotted with castles, a journey down the Rhone will take you from the picturesque mountains of Switzerland through the heartland of France and to the Mediterranean Sea.
