Whether you’re an art lover, a foodie, love French wines, a history buff, or an energetic adventurer, your Olivia Riverboat cruise on the Rhône River offers just-right included activities and excursions to suit your interests.

With Avalon Choice® inclusions, you can select the experiences that are perfect for your preference and pace. From Classic to Active to Discovery experiences, there is something for everyone. 

Begin in the culinary capital of France—Lyon—where you can choose a culinary walk to discover architecture and local specialties or take a cooking class. Embark on a kayak excursion or simply linger in a sidewalk café; stroll Avignon’s Pope’s palace or attend a wine tasting in an underground cave. With so many included choices, you’ll find the perfect way to spend your day—from a ghost tour in Viviers to a guided bike ride through the Gard region, to a chocolate factory tour.

Take a painting workshop in Arles—in the style of Van Gogh. Visit an oyster farm or ride a bike through Camargue Regional Nature Park to spot flamingos. You’ll have the classic sightseeing and relaxing activities in each destination, along with your choice of included arts, culture, and cuisine excursions.
