Extend your trip for an unforgettable experience!

It is said that "all good things must come to an end" and "Nothing lasts forever", but have you ever wished that the journey you were on would never end?

That's why we wanted to offer you the chance to extend your journey and discover your destination in greater depth, by suggesting various extensions to combine with your cruise!

A cruise is an extraordinary travel experience, offering you the chance to discover different cities and regions while enjoying the comfort of a small ship cruise without ever having to unpack. However, once the cruise is over, many travellers want to extend their stay.

On some itineraries, we offer extensions of a few days at the end of your cruise, so you can continue to explore new places, soak up the local culture, taste traditional cuisine, explore and immerse yourself in the unique atmosphere of the destination. For example, take part in a Tai Chi session in the heart of Along Bay, discover the Basque country from Espelette to Bayonne, or climb aboard the Rovos Rail, one of the world's most prestigious trains, for a 932 miles journey in South Africa.

In addition to post-cruise extensions, we also offer pre-cruise extensions to enhance your travel experience. This is the perfect opportunity to live a complete and immersive experience from the very first day of your trip.


[NEW IN 2023]

The Oise Valley by barge

Delve into the captivating history and scenic beauty of the enchanting region of the Oise. Cruise through the heart of France past picturesque landscapes, impressive châteaux, and charming towns. Discover the Château de Malmaison, a magnificent residence decorated in the antique style of famous 17th-century architects.

At the Musée Camille-Pissarro in Pontoise, discover the works of pre-impressionism to post-impressionism painters. In Auvers-sur-Oise, walk in Van Gogh's footsteps to the Musée de l'Absinthe, where you'll discover the café life of the Impressionists. Further afield, the Chateau of Chantilly offers visitors a concentration of French art de vivre, while Compiègne and the Glade of the Armistice Museum offer a historical and memorial tour.

And let's not forget the food lovers, with the legendary Crème Chantilly presented by a member of the Brotherhood of the Whipping Knights.



The Seine and the Impressionist painters

The Seine is an emblematic river that has played a key role in the history of France, and which takes those who travel on her from the capital of Paris to the fantastic Normandy coast, in a scenery that changes at every turn. It is a majestic river that winds its way through France from Paris to Honfleur and was a privileged witness to the flowering of Impressionism art. Along its course are art treasures and landscapes that have inspired some of the greatest painters in history.

Art and culture lovers, we invite you to plunge into the world of the Impressionist painters and embark on a unique cruise to discover the highlights of this revolutionary artistic movement.

Along the meandering banks of the Seine, you'll enjoy the changing reflections of a sky in perpetual motion, with a succession of bucolic landscapes, important to the hearts of these "painters of the ephemeral" who revolutionized the history of art.

From Rouen, where Monet painted its cathedral and Pissarro the port at all hours of the day, to Honfleur, the cradle of Impressionism, where every alleyway has been immortalized forever; via the grandiose scenery of the Côte d'Albâtre, leading to the white chalk cliffs of Étretat, a majestic natural monument facing the English Channel.

Let yourself be inspired by the timeless beauty of Impressionism along the Seine. Dive into a world of color, light and emotion on this unforgettable cruise that will delight history and art aficionados, as well as enthusiasts of beautiful landscapes.
