Everyone travels to see new things, but many travel to do new things as well. With our Active & Discovery river cruises, Avalon offers activities for travelers with varying interests and for all energy and fitness levels. From action-packed experiences and interactive discoveries, to traditional sightseeing, you can tailor a vacation to suit your interests and pace.
An Immersive Cruise Experience
Avalon Active & Discovery is an exciting type of cruise that introduces you to the people and places of Europe in the most engaged and fun ways imaginable. Immerse yourself in 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! We offer the chance to explore an ice cave, take an archery lesson, or help a farmer in his apricot orchard. Descend into an underground salt mine...or ascend a mountain during a guided climb. Conduct an orchestra, and compose your own waltz. Every port gives you a world of possibilities as you interact with the locals and choose the dynamic, interactive activities that appeal to you most. It's the Old World in a whole new way!
