Destinations include the ancient walled city of St. Malo, home to the jewel of Mont-Saint-Michel, a legendary Benedictine Abbey in an astonishingly scenic setting.
From the jagged cliffs and dune dotted beaches of Belle-Île you’ll spot the imposing Citadel of Le Palais. Tour the pastel-colored harbor of Sauzon, then indulge in a regional tradition with a sweet snack from a nearby crêperie or a delectable feast of fresh-caught seafood paired with a gorgeous glass of Muscadet.
Sail with us to Bordeaux for tours and tastings to famous chateaux and appellations with names like Pauillac, Sauternes, Margaux and Saint-Emilion.
From Bilbao, don’t miss the world-renowned Guggenheim Museum, hearty Basque-style tapas and Spain’s famous Rioja wines at one of the many excellent restaurants in town.
Our final stop before Lisbon is Gijon, where you can take a stroll on La Playa de Poniente on the harbor or the long promenade at La Playa de San Lorenzo on the other side of the city. Don’t miss the regional tapas and wines, or a taste of Asturia’s fabulous pastries and cakes. There are many accomplished bakers here, and it shows.
