There's no more beautiful way to explore the countryside villages of timeless Burgundy than from a river barge coasting the Saône River. Drift from one stunning landscape to another, stopping to roam the region’s famous vineyards, ride bikes through its vast forests, and indulge in its unforgettable flavours. Then head to Paris for two nights of exploration for all of your senses. This is the unique perspective of France you've dreamed about. We've chartered the Daniele River Barge for a G Adventures-National Geographic Journeys adventure in Burgundy.
This river cruise starts in Dijon on 9/21/2018 and ends in Parish on 9/30/2018.
- Burgundy Wine Talk and Horizontal Tasting. Sit down with a local winemaker and learn about some of Burgundy’s renowned vineyards. Enjoy a horizontal tasting (different wines from the same year) of the region’s celebrated Côte de Nuits reds and Côte d’Or whites.
- Local Market Visit with a Chef. Step off the tourist track and visit one of the great markets where Parisians shop for food. Walk through the Marché d’Aligre with a local chef, learning about cheeses, charcuteries, and the fresh ingredients of French cuisine.
