Fairytale settings await on every Rhine River cruise, but an Active & Discovery cruise with Avalon immerses you in new, interactive ways. As you glide from untouched villages to touching cities throughout Holland, Germany and France, our range of excursions, from Classic to Discovery to Active options, presents the opportunity to move at your desired pace and be moved at every turn.
Clifftop castles, rolling vineyards, and cobblestone lanes become even more enchanting when you experience them from the seat of a bicycle or an artist’s stool. From culinary walks and beer tours to cave, castle and kayaking explorations, you choose exactly how to toast the joys of the Rhine and your moving journey on it.
Enjoy a little get-up-and-go on your cruising holiday when you:
- Paddle through the canals of Amsterdam on a kayak.
- Take an E-Bike tour surrounded by beautiful vineyards at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle rivers.
- Follow the road less travelled on an exciting hike along Heidelberg’s Philosophers’ Way.
And Be Moved.
Get off the beaten path and relish the world when you:
- Discover your inner artist at an Amsterdam painting class inspired by the Dutch masters.
- Explore the lava caverns on a one-of-a-kind volcano encounter below the town of Mendig.
- Join a foodie tour through Strasbourg to discover the cuisine of France’s Alsace region.
Plus, Classic sightseeing is always available in every port along the way.
Start sooner and stay longer with a one-night hotel stay in Amsterdam, and a two-night hotel stay in Lucerne! Avalon Choice sightseeing is the perfect highlight of your stay.
Activate your senses and discover a world of wonder in all-new, entirely “you” ways on your personal, passion-packed cruise along the Rhine.
