River Cruising for the Active Traveler
A cruise vacation is meant to be relaxing, but some of us can sit still and watch the scenery go by for only so long. Then we want to be out exploring the various ports of call and doing things that we can’t do at home. Active and Discovery Cruises are offered by Avalon Waterways just for people like us. We want to come home with stories to tell, not just a slide show.
Are you a food and wine aficionado? Join us on our Rhine River cruise for a trip to the Chocolate Museum in Cologne, a wine tour and tasting in Eltville, and a hands-on culinary experience in Dusseldorf.
Do you like active sports? Our Danube River cruise gives you the option to bike through Vienna, canoe from Krems to Spitz, or hike the Danube trails.
Art museums and historical sites are everywhere in Europe, and you’ll have a chance to attend a painting class and attempt to recreate the master works of Dutch artists, examine the Hapsburg private art collection, and visit the Italian and Dutch Masters Gallery.
You get the idea. These excursions are open to those who want to be very active as well as those who prefer a more traditional guided tour at a leisurely pace. You can set your own agenda for each port of call and be assured that your experience will be a rewarding one.
Let me know where your interests lie, and I’m ready to help you find the Active and Discovery Cruise that fits your lifestyle.
