Exploration In Motion

For the traveler who thrives on motion and action, Avalon has created a broad menu of energetic excursions. You might find yourself on a jogging tour through Amsterdam, on a biking tour around Vienna, or even on a paddling trip down the Danube. From a climbing trip up to a medieval castle to hiking in the forest, these included excursions pack real get-up-and-go for those who like to do the same.

 

Discovery

Engaging Experiences

For those who love to learn, Avalon presents an inspiring selection of interactive excursions created for the different kind of “doer.” These hands-on experiences include a painting class in Amsterdam, tasting locally produced cheese and beer at an ancient abbey, or saying “good morning” to Vienna on an early-riser walk to a quaint café. Local traditions come to life as you shift from observer to participant in a variety of creative outings.

It’s the Old World in a whole new way!

Hike, Bike, Paint, Learn & Engage Your Way Through Europe

Avalon Active Discovery is an exciting type of cruise that introduces you to the people and places of Europe in the most active, 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.

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.
