The Rhone River originates at the Rhone Glacier in Valais Switzerland, flows through Lake Geneva (Lac Léman) and runs through the centre of Geneva. This picturesque river then passes through the French cities of Arles, Avignon, Lyon and Marseille where it eventually flows into the Mediterranean Sea.

The Rhone River is one of Europe's most important inland waterways for trade and transportation. Visitors to Geneva Switzerland can enjoy a leisurely hike along the Rhone River.
