Trip Overview

During your 8-day journey, sail along France’s scenic Rhône River past some of the most beautiful vistas the French countryside has to offer. Explore the famed region of Burgundy and the lavender fields of Provence.  Board the Train de l’Ardèche for a locomotive ride through the deep gorges of the Ardèche plateau cut by the Doux River.  Visit Gallo-Roman ruins in both Vienne and Arles; walk the cobbled streets of Arles to see how it inspired Vincent van Gogh; and visit the historic Papal Palace in Avignon, “City of the Popes.” Learn about the region’s time-honored winemaking traditions, sample Beaujolais varietals and try the world-famous regional cuisine in Lyon. C’est magnifique!

Registration and Payment

  • Online registration is more efficient and highly recommended.
  • A deposit of $500 per person to reserve a space in your favorite cabin. 
  • Final full payment for individual trip costs is due by March 31, 2019.
  • If you choose not to do online reservation, then email the trip leader Ying Prince to get the registration form, and then register by U.S. Mail.

Sign up with a $500 deposit to reserve your space as soon as possible.  I know… you’re thinking  “I have time.  I can wait to book this trip.”  Alas, Viking doesn’t operate that way. The cruise line increases prices with time and low-priced cabins will be sold out first. SO, book now.  You can’t beat the price!  SCWDC membership is required to register for this trip.
