As the water flows

Enjoy Avignon on the water, with cruises on the Rhône, walks on the Barthelasse Island, water sports, a romantic dinner by the water and a relaxing night’s sleep to the sound of the lapping waves…

The bac à traille, free river shuttle

Focus on

Come on board for a free crossing of the Rhône! From Quai de la Ligne, at the foot of Rocher des Doms, to Barthelasse Island, discover Europe’s largest river island on foot or by bike. Crossing the Rhône by boat is a quick and convenient way to reach the opposite bank, where you can continue your walk along the towpath, relax and picnic on the lawns while enjoying the magnificent views. But it’s also an opportunity to enjoy a pleasant ride on the water: a mini-cruise that offers a breathtaking view of the famous Pont d’Avignon!
