France's Finest on Viking Radgrid
Paris to Avignon
Join two popular itineraries to create a 15-day river cruise that offers the ultimate journey through France. Begin in France’s legendary capital of Paris, then travel along the Seine through the Norman countryside to the historic Normandy beaches before returning to Paris. Transfer to Chalon-sur-Saône to embark on the second half of your grand tour of France, finding artistic inspiration in the colors and sunlight of Burgundy and Provence.
Pay your respects at Normandy’s World War II beaches. Walk in Joan of Arc’s footsteps at Rouen. Luxuriate in Paris’s sophistication. Savor Lyon’s culinary heritage. Toast the Beaujolais vineyards. Explore Avignon’s Palace of the Popes. Celebrate the Provençal lifestyle. Art, cuisine, style, joie de vivre-if you love everything Français, this is for you: a 15-day journey that combines our popular Paris & the Heart of Normandy and Lyon & Provence cruises into one tour de force.
Boasting the same popular design elements as our Viking Longships, our Viking Seine ships feature state-of-the art engineering, deluxe accommodations and streamlined Scandinavian interiors. Plus, these ships feature customized hulls and engines specifically built to navigate the historic Seine River.
Radgrid was one of the legendary horse-riding Valkyries, the handmaidens of Odin, the father of the gods. These long-haired, beautiful women descended from the skies into battles to decide which soldiers lived and which died. Radgrid’s name translates into “truce of counsel,” suggesting her great power in determining the fate of mortals.
