No two travellers are alike—so Avalon would never expect you to enjoy the same cruise experiences as everyone else. With our Active & Discovery river cruises, Avalon offers a variety of included excursions ranging from energetic experiences to interactive discoveries. With a broad menu of engaging pursuits, Active & Discovery cruises allow you to tailor your holiday to your personal taste and pace.

Active: Engaging Experiences

Everyone likes to watch the passing scenery. For those who fancy themselves in the scene, Avalon offers a host of expert-guided, yet self-powered excursions in the centre of it all. You might find yourself leisurely pedalling around an ancient village, peacefully paddling down a legendary river, or tranquilly traipsing through a storied vineyard. From light hiking to speedier strolls, these included excursions get the juices and the imagination flowing.

Discovery: Interactive Pursuits 

For those who believe that life is about trying new things, Avalon presents an inspiring selection of interactive excursions created for the different kind of “doer.” These hands-on experiences include joining a painting class in an art studio, creating your own signature confection at a chocolate factory, or tasting fresh oysters at a local oyster farm. Regional traditions come to life as you shift from observer to participant in a variety of creative outings. 

ACTIVE & DISCOVERY RIVER CRUISES THROUGH EUROPE

Avalon Active & Discovery invites you to set your spirit in motion and expand the horizons of your favourite activities with new experiences.

Explore the culture, sights, and adventures waiting beyond the shore in the most active, engaged, and fun ways imaginable. Whether you like to paddle a kayak or paint a canvas, each day on an Avalon cruise is an adventure of the mind, heart, or heart rate if you prefer. The possibilities are as wide open as the views
