Saone River Cruises

The Saone is a major tributary of the River Rhone, passing through a wide selection of captivating ports across Switzerland and France on its way to the city of Lyon, where it joins the Rhone. Cruises along the Saone therefore, often link to the Rhone at some point in order to lengthen itineraries and offer a more expansive tour of France, sailing further south towards the beautiful and iconic French Riviera.

While the majority of France’s largest and most important cities can be found along other rivers across the country, including the Rhone and the Seine, the Saone has a collection of quaint villages and stunning wine producing regions along its banks, where scenic vineyards and rolling green hills offer a wonderful haven at which travellers can take a stroll to soak up to region’s wonderfully serene and peaceful atmosphere.

The bustling and vibrant city of Lyon can be found where the Saone meets the Rhine in southern France, while smaller ports are situated along the banks of the river itself. Some of the Saone’s most enchanting communes, sometimes featured on sailings which navigate this scenic waterway, include Chalon-sur-Saone, Tournus, Villefranche-sur-Saone and Trevoux.

A river cruise along the Saone is a marvellous way to uncover the rural beauty and charming culture of eastern France, and when combined with sailings along some of the country’s other most famous waterways, such as the Seine and the Rhone, it offers a truly in-depth and immersive experience of life across this famous nation.
