We this cruise!!  Why?

♥ Because Avalon's Active & Discovery cruises are exactly what you are looking for: a way to find more adventure on your river cruise while delving deeper into local cultures. Your choice of a different included excursion everyday - Classic, Discovery or Active.  And there are always bicycles on board for your personal [unguided] use.  You can even request a Picnic Lunch to take along (no charge).

Because the ship only holds 126 passengers.  Make new worldwide friends - yet very intimate.

♥ Because the Rhone River winds through some of the world's most famous wine regions, olive groves, rolling fields of fragrant purple lavender and charming historic towns. Enjoy fine French Provencal cuisine and wines of the Cote du Rhone as you roll along the river. 

♥ Because it's the south of France!  Need we say more!!  It goes without saying that it has an amazing climate and gorgeous landscapes. It’s also the architecture and art- famous artists lived and painted there (Cézanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Picasso, Signac, Matisse, Braque...).  French wine.  French food. The culture and natural wonders of the entire area along the Rhone make this unique destination exceptional. 

Weather:  Should be perfect Autumn weather!  Plan on warmish days (80's) - and cool nights.
