Viking Hermod river cruise prices are per person and based on double occupancy. These are only indicative Viking cruise rates. They might be different when you book your Viking River Cruises France cruisetour deals, influenced by travel agency promotions, special offers and discounts, group travel booking or last-minute deals rates. On some Viking Hermod's France cruise tours, the line offers round-trip USA airfare discount deals (on select cabins or itineraries/dates). Follows the list of Viking Hermod river cruise itineraries as themes, officially announced by the Viking Cruises line:
- "PORTRAITS OF SOUTHERN FRANCE" are 7-day Rhone and Saone river cruises from Avignon to Chalon, and the reverse from Lyon/Chalon to Avignon. These deals include 6 complimentary land tours/excursions in the Provence and Burgundy (France wine regions).
- Also included in Viking France river cruise fares are: bus transfers (Lyon to Chalon /embarkation, Avignon to Marseille /airport), scenic drive (Pommard-Volnay-Meursault), Beaune (cellar wine tasting), Tournon (red wines tasting), Chateauneuf-du-Pape (wine tasting).
- "FRANCE FINEST" are 14-days "back to back" travel deals on river cruises from Paris to Avignon. They combine the 7-day Seine cruise from Paris (round-trip, operated by one of the Viking ships there) with the 7-day Saone-Rhone cruise from Chalon to Avignon (operated by the longship Hermod). On Day 8 guests disembark for the bus travel from Paris to Chalon (on Saone river), with a stop for lunch and short walk tour in Dijon, and boarding the Hermod boat in Chalon.
