Embark on an unforgettable voyage through southern France on this exclusive Inspirato Only experience with your fellow members aboard the S.S. Catherine. During this nine-day journey, you’ll be immersed in the beauty, cuisine, and history of France as you cruise the scenic Saône and Rhône rivers.

Walk in the footsteps of Van Gogh, Cézanne, and Gauguin, experiencing the same beguiling countrysides and culture that inspired their paintings. Visit charming cobblestone-street villages with UNESCO World Heritage Sites, like the majestic Palace of Popes in Avignon—one of Europe’s most important medieval Gothic buildings.

The region’s incomparable cuisine and wine will be a highlight of the trip—both on board and in port. Enjoy wine tastings in Beaune, a Hermitage terrace vineyard hike in Tournon, and a gastronomy tour of Lyon’s centuries-old bouchons and specialty food shops.

For those who seek adventure, you can find it hiking the steep vineyards on the Rhône, kayaking the Gardon River under the UNESCO-designated Pont du Gard, or pedaling through the bike-friendly city of Lyon. Whether you’re a history buff, a wine connoisseur, or an adventurer, come set sail with Inspirato on the S.S. Catherine and delight in all that Burgundy and Provence have to offer.
