The Rhone flows through the Alps into France, visiting destinations such as Arles, Avignon and several Mediterranean ports, all of which are just waiting to be explored.
As one of Europe’s major waterways, flowing more than 500-miles from its source to the Mediterranean Sea, the Rhone is an important trade route and cultural icon throughout France.
Visit Lake Geneva and witness the glimmer of sunshine on the water or take a stroll along the shore paths. In springtime, this body of water is filled with activities such as paddle boarding and kayaking, whereas in the winter, skiing and sledging entice you out of the cold onto your next adventure.
Further down the river, Lyon is home to the confluence of both the Rhone and Saone rivers as they meet in the centre of this city. Peer at the architecture of Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourviere, explore the streets which date back to Roman times and catch the marvellous funicular railway.
Closer to the French Riviera and the Mediterranean Sea, Arles and Avignon are hosts of history and heritage. With an abundance of landmarks, scenic settings and cool cuisines, both of these cities are as captivating as one another.
