We all travel to see new things, try new things and experience new cultures. So, it only makes sense to set sail on a river cruise that’s just as far from the ordinary. From endless views to endless possibilities, Avalon Waterways charts a whole new course in river cruising.
Looking for a more hands-on experience? Our new Active & Discovery river cruises down the Danube, Rhine and Rhône Rivers offer a deeper immersion in each destination. Enjoy beautiful views of castles as you glide along legendary riverbanks in a canoe, or perfect your brushstrokes in a local art studio. From steering a bicycle through Europe’s must-see sights to searing today’s catch in a lively cooking class, our Active & Discovery river cruises present a whole new level of engagement.
Active: Exploration in Motion
For the traveller who thrives on motion and action, Avalon has created a broad menu of energetic excursions. You might find yourself on a jogging tour through Amsterdam, on a biking tour around Vienna, or even on a paddling trip down the Danube. From a climbing trip up to a medieval castle to hiking in the forest, these included excursions pack real get-up-and-go for those who like to do the same.
Discovery: Engaging Experiences
For those who love to learn, Avalon presents an inspiring selection of interactive excursions created for the different kind of “doer”. These hands-on experiences include a painting class in Amsterdam, tasting locally produced cheese and beer at an ancient abbey, or saying “Guten Morgen” to Vienna on an early-riser walk to a quaint café. Local traditions come to life as you shift from observer to participant in a variety of creative outings.
Avalon Active & Discovery is an exciting type of cruise that introduces you to the people and places of Europe in the most engaged and fun ways imaginable. Every port gives you a world of possibilities as you interact with the locals and choose the dynamic, interactive activities that appeal to you most. It’s the Old World in a whole new way!
