One-day cruise on the Hermès boat
Wish you were somewhere else?
Unfettered by luggage, you'll be casting off on a discovery tour of the Pierre Dorées (Golden Stones) villages in the Saône valley, and enjoying food lovingly concocted by our Chef, here, on board the Hermès boat-restaurant.
You'll experience going through a lock in Couzon-au-Mont-d'Or before slowly sailing all the way to Neuville-sur-Saône.
The Hermès will then change course and gently return to Lyon, in search of wild riverbanks. Later, after sailing along the banks of Vieux-Lyon and the Presqu'île, and passing the confluence, you'll get to marvel at the modern architecture of the Confluence district.
Make the most of the afternoon to lounge on the terrace.

Lovely lunch, much better than expected. The town the boat stops off in isn't the most exciting town in the world, with not a lot to see but it was nice to stretch your legs.
