Active & Discovery on the Seine with Saint Malo & Mont St. Michel Extension

Paris to Paris

with Avalon Waterways

With a delicious menu of culturally immersive experiences, an Avalon Active & Discovery cruise on the Seine serves up joie de vivre at every port. History meets happiness as you decide how to savour the castles, croissants, châteaux, and chèvre of fabulous France from Paris to Normandy.

A wide array of Classic, Discovery, and Active excursions puts you in the driver’s seat of your holiday– whether that’s a bicycle seat, canoe seat, or a front row seat at a culinary or cocktail workshop where you’ll learn hands-on how to master the delightful delicacies this gastronomic country is known for. This is your tour de France. No matter how you choose to journey through it, monumental discoveries and moving experiences await at every turn.

About Avalon Waterways 
Beyond the wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows is a world waiting to be explored – your way. Whether you want to enjoy a guided walking tour of one of Europe’s great cities, join a cooking class or paddle a canoe,  Avalon Choice℠ selections of Classic, Discovery and Active excursions offer a wide range of possibilities.

When you prefer to explore on your own, Avalon Waterways provide their recommendations, information and gear you need from the new Adventure Centre and AvalonGO Mobile App.  When back on board, the flexibility doesnt end, with Flex Dining – where onboard dining dispenses with strict seating times and limited restaurant options. Choose the onboard dining venue that suits your mood – from a breezy al fresco lunch at the Sky Grill to an elegant four-course dinner in the glass-walled dining room.

Last but not least, one we love about Avalon Waterways is the cabin design – if you are booking a balcony cabin, the beds face to the water – why look at a wall with all that scenery floating by.
