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 by 30 November 2018, and you can save up to £865pp. So there's no better time to see Europe's rivers from our award-winning staterooms and river cruises.
