Waterways of Belgium & France
Enjoy an enriching escape combining scenic river cruising with visits to three inspiration destinations to provide a plethora of memorable experiences. A short, late spring foray to France will be one to treasure, with a visit to Honfleur a particular highlight. You’re sure to feel inspired here, like so many famous painters and poets before you, as you wander the charming 16th century cobbled streets and see the eye-catching timber-fronted tall houses of the historic Vieux Bassin – a reminder of Normandy’s fascinating maritime past.
On the beautiful Brittany coast, fascinating St Malo awaits. Take a day to explore the Old Town, encased by imposing granite walls, or enjoy some relaxation at the beach; or perhaps tour to the dramatic island of Mont St Michel and its iconic, fairytale-esque spired abbey. There’s time in Belgium too; you’ll sail the countryside scenes of the Western Scheldt River into Antwerp, a city of many ‘must-discover’ attractions. Head ashore and you’ll soon discover highlights such as the iconic Cathedral of Our Lady, traditional Belgian chocolate shops; Grote Markt; and the legendary Diamond District, where you could not only see some of the world’s greatest gems, but help to polish a rough diamond too.
- A five-night journey of discovery combining scenic river cruising through breathtaking countryside with visits to three inspirational cities, this is an enriching short break.
- Enjoy a short French foray including chances to explore the charming cobbled streets and historic harbour of Honfleur, and the dramatic fortifications of St Malo and Mont St Michel.
- There’s a memorable day in Belgium too; Bolette takes you on a journey along the Western Scheldt River to Antwerp, a city famed for its cathedrals, chocolate shops and sparking diamonds.
