Seine River Cruises

Meandering on a serpentine path through the serene Norman countryside, a Viking Seine river cruise delivers you to the picturesque and storied locales of Northern France, from elegant Paris and Claude Monet’s home at Giverny to the Normandy beaches. Seine cruises drift past dreamy apple orchards, soaring cliffs, castle ruins and historic Rouen, the region’s cultural capital. Join one of our France river cruises below:

Highlights of the Seine River

It is only 110 miles as the crow flies from Paris to the English Channel, but the Seine River snakes its way through 240 miles of magnificent Norman vistas. There is much to see as this waterway winds through France’s history: the riverside cultural monuments of Paris, scenic vistas that still today inspire great artists, farmlands that produce Calvados apple liqueur, and so much more. Here are some select highlights you will enjoy during a Seine river cruise:

  • The magnificent sights of Paris, from the Eiffel Tower to Notre Dame Cathedral
  • Claude Monet’s beautiful house and gardens at Giverny
  • Rouen’s spectacular Gothic cathedral
  • Normandy’s historic beaches, site of the 1944 D-Day landings
  • The remains of Château Gaillard, Richard the Lionheart’s castle
  • Napoleon’s final home, Château de Malmaison
  • Scenic farmlands dotted with Norman cows and half-timbered houses
  • Creamy samples of locally made Brie and Camembert cheeses
