Saône River in Lyon, France

New Options: French Waterways, Deschutes River Rafting

French Waterways | October 8—20

Our fall 2013 trip will allow travelers to experience the Burgundy and Provence areas of France by ship. The trip will be bookended with hotel stays in Monaco and Paris, and the nine nights in between will be spent aboard the brand new River Discovery II, which features luxurious cabins and gourmet meals.

Additionally, optional three-night pre- and post-trips to Barcelona and Paris are available for those who want to get more out of their experience. The standard tour will include 11 sightseeing stops, visits to three UNESCO World Heritage sites, numerous cultural connections and great opportunities to enjoy and appreciate the French way of life.

Contact Kim Burris in the Office of Alumni Relations at kburris@willamette.edu or 503-375-5304 for more information or to reserve your space now. Jim Booth ’64 will be the trip host.

This trip is our tour provider’s most popular and quickest-selling offering. Déplacez-vous rapidement!

And, just a teaser:

Instead of kayaking the San Juans, this year’s smaller-scale, affordable outdoors trip will take us river rafting on the Deschutes! Stay tuned in May (and read WU News) for dates and rates.
