Active Discovery on the Rhine - Amsterdam to Wiesbaden

An exciting way to river cruise and to actively discover well-known and off-the-beaten-path treasures along the Rhine. At each stop, you choose your activity and get some exercise with an active outing. Discover a fascinating but perhaps lesser-known site, or do the more traditional sightseeing activity. From cycling along the Rhine and exploring Amsterdam on a running tour, to learning about German food on a guided culinary walk in Duisburg and exploring the corridors of an ancient volcano, the choice is yours.
