If you are a traveler who love to keep your active lifestyle going when you're off exploring the world, then you'll want to look into an Avalon Waterways Active & Discovery cruise. Avalon Choice® offers a choice of daily included excursions - Classic, Discovery, and Active. Choose from a variety of inclusions to match your mood, pace, and interests each day, all while experiencing the sights, sounds and flavours of the destination, your way.


When you cruise on an Active & Discovery voyage you'll be introduced to the people and places of Europe in an active, engaging and fun way. You can stay active by going on a bike tour along the Rhine river, or a running tour through Amsterdam, or hike a first-class hiking tail. How about a paddling a canoe along the Danube!


To help you discover more, Avalon offers you way to explore beyond and expand your knowledge. You'll have the change to immerse yourself the history and culture at each port with excursions to historic castles, a culinary tour, a painting class, and even a chance to dress up in real Roman attire at a Roman Clothes Workshop or reenactment of the Roman Games. Tour an extinct volcano and coal mine, and visit sites off the beaten path, such as a chocolate museum...sure to entice your sweet tooth!
