In the south of France, you will have the chance to forage for delectable truffles with a local farmer in Tournus, as well as delight in an interactive chocolate experience at the famous Valrhona Cité du Chocolat museum at TainL’Hermitage. Avignon’s famous food markets are yours to explore on an exclusive ‘Shop with a Chef’ excursion; when you return to your Space-Ship, watch as the fresh ingredients are transformed into fine French cuisine at the on board cooking school, Scenic Culinaire. You can also learn more about fine dining when you witness an authentic cooking demonstration at the restaurant of three star Michelin chef, Georges Blanc.
In addition to our collection of French river cruises, we have introduced two brand-new Culinary Cruises for 2021. Embrace the very best of France’s gastronomic gifts with a specially curated selection of experiences and excursions – and of course, everything is included in the price. Choose between the Tastes of Southern France or Flavours of Bordeaux. Culinary highlights across each itinerary include dining at a traditional Bouchon, an authentic tasting experience at an organic goat cheese farm, wine tastings at local vineyards, and a food photography workshop, among many others.
Whichever corner of France you choose to explore with Scenic, you will have the chance to immerse yourself in the country’s delectable flavours, travelling in truly all-inclusive luxury.
