Beyond the mighty Rhine Gorge the great Rhine Valley carves its way along the much-disputed borderlands of France and Germany. Whilst the Rhine still symbolises the border, the valley now is a place of surreal peace, tranquility and unrivalled natural beauty. 

This cruise upstream captures this unbelievable scenic backdrop perfectly, with some wonderful visits along the way.
