Active Discovery River Cruises through Europe

Avalon Active Discovery invites you to expand the horizons of your favorite activities with new experiences. Explore the culture, sights, and adventures waiting beyond the shore in the most active, engaged, and fun ways imaginable. Learn some of the local language—and then go try it in a café or pub. Take in more than the scenery by learning something new, meeting new friends, and reaching new heights. 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!

When packing your polos and pashminas, there's no reason to leave your passions and pursuits behind. Our Active Discovery Cruises unite you with your pastimes - and other like-minded enthusiasts - both on the ship and off.
