Seine River Cruises

For the best prices call us free on:


One of France’s great rivers, the Seine rises at Saint-Seine near Dijon in the east of the country, close to the Swiss Alps and flows for 486-miles in a northwesterly direction, dissecting Paris, before crossing Normandy and emptying into the English Channel at Le Havre.

On a Seine River cruise, typically travelling from Honfleur or Rouen on the Normandy coast to Paris or vice-versa, you will discover the true beauty of Northern France, gliding past storybook chateaux and medieval towns and discovering why artists throughout the centuries have found inspiration in these regions, from the suburbs of Paris to the fishing villages of Normandy. You may visit Honfleur, the birthplace of Impressionism or Giverny, home to Monet´s stone farmhouse and world-famous gardens, or perhaps the famous Palace of Versailles. Walk the Normandy beaches where the Allied forces landed during the Second World War's D-Day landings or see the site where Joan of Arc was martyred in Rouen. And then there's Paris, the iconic highlight of any Seine River cruise.


France’s cosmopolitan and culturally rich capital is a truly iconic European city with a long and illustrious history. A Seine river cruise takes travellers right into the heart of the city, offering the perfect opportunity for sightseeing tours as well as solo exploration.

Some of Paris’ most important landmarks and must-sees include the world-famous Eiffel Tower, the historic Arc de Triomphe and incredible catacombs beneath the city. As a hotbed of culture and fashion, Paris also boasts a number of renowned galleries and museums such as the Louvre, the Picasso Museum and the Centre Georges Pompidou museum of modern art.

To truly experience life in Paris, be sure to browse the many wonderful shopping boutiques situated across the city centre or sit down in a quaint cafe or bistro to sample local delicacies and simply observe the hustle and bustle of the city streets.


The Seine flows through the French region of Normandy, offering travellers the opportunity to spend time in this scenic and historic corner of the country. Normandy is perhaps best-known as the site of the momentous D-Day landings during the Second World War and the remnants of this historic event can be observed across the region. Take a trip to see the famous beaches of Normandy where the Allies landed during Operation Overload to take back Europe from the Nazis, and visit the many poignant grave sites where those who lost their lives during the invasion are now buried.


The historic town of Rouen is a window into France's ancient and fascinating heritage. This beautiful area was where Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake and can be regarded as a huge open-air museum, with so many wonderfully preserved structures and landmarks scattered through the town.

Rouen Cathedral is a true masterpiece of historic architecture. Dating back as far as the 4th century, it boasts incredibly intricate design and has many fascinating stories to tell. Elsewhere in Rouen, be sure climb the Big Clock for spectacular views of the surrounding area.
