Explore the Rhine
Meandering from Switzerland to the North Sea, the Rhine is one of the most scenic rivers in Europe with alpine slopes, fairytale castles and charismatic cities en route.
We 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.
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.
Book your 2019 Active Discovery cruise now, and you can save up to £600pp. So there's no better time to see Europe's rivers from our award-winning staterooms and river cruises.
Welcome to river cruising - a new way of seeing the world that gives you the exceptional service and luxury of small-ship ocean cruising with intimacy, choice and attention to detail.
On an Avalon river cruise, we take care of everything. We host fewer passengers so we can offer a personal, intuitive service, whether it's the wine expert who remembers which vintage you enjoyed yesterday, the pillows you prefer on your bed, or the way you like your steak cooked at dinner.
Our spacious, elegant ships offer you the chance to explore each new horizon in sheer comfort, while our expert-led excursions bring each port of call to life - the moment you step off the ship.
