Bordeaux Waterways

Enjoy a rich blend of exciting history and culinary traditions on a river cruise through France's Bordeaux wine region. Home to gentle Atlantic breezes, lush rolling hills and verdant vineyards, the region has produced renowned wines for centuries.

The Bordeaux region is part of Aquitaine, a former kingdom located in southwestern France. Here, the Garonne and Dordogne rivers merge to form the Gironde estuary south of the city of Bordeaux. Cruises typically begin and end in this city, where you'll find grand architecture, superb museums and cafes serving mouthwatering delicacies.

While cruising, you'll visit prestigious chateaux, charming towns and notable wineries. Stops along the Garonne River usually include Cadillac's ancient harbor and 16th-century chateau, as well as the nearby vineyards of Sauternes where you can sample dessert wines and learn how they are made. Highlights on the Dordogne include Saint-Emilion, the oldest wine-making area of the Bordeaux region, and the citadel of Blaye, an imposing fortress and UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Near the Gironde estuary lies the town of Pauillac, gateway to the Medoc wine route and its scenic landscapes. If you're lucky, you may see le mascaret, a natural wave phenomena that happens throughout the year, but particularly from June through November, in the Gironde estuary.

Our sailings on the Bordeaux waterways are hassle-free and easy to budget. Experienced cruise directors take care of all the day-to-day details, while expert guides help you make the most of your time in port. And best of all, the price you pay up front includes your stateroom, onboard meals and entertainment and sightseeing excursions.
