Burgundy River Cruise Adventure

8 days, Dijon to Dijon

!

Sorry! There are no remaining departures for "Burgundy River Cruise Adventure" (EFLEDN),but here are some similar trips.

Blessed with some of the most gorgeous countryside in Europe, if not the world (not to mention perhaps the best wine around), Burgundy is a place everyone should explore at least once. And the best way to do it is from the deck of an ambling river barge. Visit small villages and first-rate wineries, bike through forests and vineyards on a provided bicycle, and soak up the glorious sunshine, all with the help of a charming little hotel that goes where you go. You won’t get a better glimpse of Burgundy’s pastoral pleasures than this.
