We offer a huge number of themed cruises that you can take part in upon chartering out the full vessel. France is one of the popular destinations in Europe when it comes to themed cruises, this is because there are so many activities that incorporate the country’s stunning history, culture, and beauty. We are also open to options; should a whole boat charter enquire about a themed cruise, we will do what we can to make it happen. You can choose from one of our many phenomenal themed charter cruises that have been satisfying our customers for decades.
Wine Appreciation Cruises
It is no secret as to why these themed cruises are so popular, France truly is Europe’s home of fine wine. Over the course of the private charter, you will experience private tastings at some of the country’s most exclusive and prestigious vineyards. During your visit to these vineyards you will be accompanied by experts who will provide information on the grapes, cultivation and history of the wineries.
Tasting the carefully selected fine Burgundies wines, including Nuits St-Georges, Santenay, and Vosne Romanée, in the places in which they were produced truly helps you to fully immerse yourself in the wine tasting experience.
The Vouvray and Touraine wines of the Loire have been made for centuries by generations of local Chateau owners, and on the Loire Valley wine cruise you will be introduced to both. In glorious Provence and the Languedoc-Roussillon, the vintage wines are lighter and fruitier, but no less exquisite. While the crisp whites of Alsace are the perfect complement to the delightful scenery of the Route des Grands Crus. Tour guides often buy a few bottles for you to enjoy onboard over dinner too.
Walking trips offer you a whole new way to see and experience the truly unique and enchanting scenery that France has to offer. The walking cruises allow you to explore the country at your own pace and offer you a luxurious barge to come back to that will have you in a whole new beautiful location that you can explore by the time you wake up the next morning.
Golf Chateau de Taniay, Domaine du Roncemay, Chateau de Avoise and Golf de Beaune Livernois are some of the most exclusive golf courses in Europe. Over the course of our private golf cruise in France, you will have the opportunity to play at these stunning courses and more. We will arrange the tee times around you and make sure that you get the chance to enjoy all of the other unforgettable moments that the cruise will provide.
Tandem Barge Cruises
Do you have lots of friends or an extended family group? Or perhaps you want to book for your wine club or golfing mates but have too many people to fit the number of cabins. As long as you plan in advance and choose one of our selected routes, we can offer tandem trips. These allow for up to 20 passengers across two boats and can be lots of fun. As you cruise alongside each other, you can look forward to two chefs bringing their menus together to create daily four-course feasts and the crew organising cocktail parties. Your group is required to do nothing but sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
Other Charter Ideas
Other themed cruises can also be arranged with special itineraries, from Art Cruises on the Midi, to Flower Show Cruises on the Royal River Thames in England and Opera Cruises in Italy.
