Switzerland is an Avalon Waterways favourite location – a country of laidback luxury where endless temptations abound, from searingly beautiful vistas to vibrant, urban cities. It also happens to be our country of origin. From the mighty Matterhorn to the glistening shores of Lac Leman and the edgy vibe in Zurich, Switzerland is simple and made perfectly. The capital Basel, intersecting the French, German and Swiss borders has a multicultural ambience. Wander the cobbled streets of lofty Altstadt and pause for riverside dining before heading back on board to live it up on an Avalon Danube River Cruise in Europe.

From Europe to the Galapagos and Asia, cruise in relaxed luxury with Avalon Waterways with choices as unique as you. 

Glide away down the world’s most spectacular rivers, enjoying a unique vantage point from your own private oasis. Our floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows blur the line between where the world ends and your suite begins, allowing you to experience the world less seen from the comfort of your bed.
