Continue to Port Saint Louis, your gateway to the stunning Camargue, which can be explored on an optional jeep safari.

Cruise to Avignon in the shadow of the majestic Palais des Papes, and on to Viviers, from where you can visit the Ardeche Gorges, a series of dramatic and truly breathtaking gorges. The final port of call before returning to Lyon is pretty Tain L'Hermitage, where there is an optional tour to the Vecors with a tasting of the famous Clairette de Die.
