Seine River Cruises in Paris, France
At around twice the size of Colorado, France is approximately 547,030 square km, according to FranceWay.com. For outdoor enthusiasts, many regions of the country provide opportunities for hiking and caving such as the Chartreuse Mountains (Massif de la Chartreuse), a region in the eastern portion of the country. Most visitors to the region fly into Grenoble from Paris, which provides an opportunity to see the sights in the City of Light. One way to see the Parisian sights is by taking a cruise along the Seine River.
