Pick how you play

No two travellers are alike – so Avalon would never expect you to enjoy the same cruise experiences as everyone else. Untethered and full of included options, our exclusive Active & Discovery cruises offer the widest array of energising and engaging excursions, so you can customise your cruise to suit your own personal taste and pace.

Avalon Waterways’ collection of one-of-a-kind Active & Discovery cruises take place on the Upper & Lower Danube, Rhine & Rhône, Seine and Moselle Rivers, and in Holland and Belgium.
