New with Avalon Waterways

Active Discovery on the Danube

 

This exciting new vacation introduces you to the people and places along the Danube from Budapest to Linz, as well as to the UNESCO World Heritage Site city of Česky Krumlov and Prague, in the most active, engaged and fun ways imaginable. Start your vacation with one night in Hungary’s capital city before boarding your Avalon ship and heading for Visegrad. The choice is always yours: you might like to learn a little Hungarian in Budapest; attend a medieval knights’ tournament in Visegrad; take a jogging tour around Vienna, or visit the city when it first awakes; meet with a local produce grower in the Wachau Valley, or paddle a canoe; be introduced to a count in his castle; bike to an ancient border defense near Mauthausen or visit World War II’s largest concentration camp; taste locally produced cheese and beer brewed by Trappist monks near Linz, or hike along an old smugglers’ route. And all the while enjoy the comfort of your Avalon ship, with its delectable meals and warm, personal service. Certainly your home from home while you explore your new surroundings every day. Disembark and spend one night in Linz. Choose from a conventional city tour or a history tour, or a gentle hike to the Pöstlingberg for a fantastic panoramic view of Linz. An optional cooking class is available or the chance to learn more about farming in the region. Then visit beautiful Česky Krumlov en route to Prague. Your vacation ends with two nights in the Czech Republic’s capital, exploring the city in the company of a Local Guide, or during an urban hike or on your own. We also offer a variety of optionals such as a visit to a microbrewery or a cooking school to make sure you never run out of things to do!
