Are you ready for a river cruise with real get-up-and-go? Introducing Active Discovery on the Danube, an exciting new river cruise that helps you experience Europe in the most engaged, action-packed, and fun ways imaginable. Bike, hike, and canoe along the Danube. Learn how to milk cows and mow grass with a scythe. Explore an ice cave, take an archery lesson, descend into an underground salt mine...or ascend a mountain during a guided climb. Play nine holes of golf, learn some of the local language—and how to prepare regional delicacies at a hands-on cooking class. In every port of call, connect with the locals...and choose the interactive excursions and activities that appeal to you most. Active Discovery is a 9 day eastbound or westbound voyage between Budapest, Hungary and Linz, Austria.

Or perhaps you prefer a more traditional itinerary like this for the 8 day cruise from Paris:
Combine time in France’s marvelous capital with discoveries of quaint towns along the Seine and in the picturesque Normandy region. Embark in Paris, sailing to Vernon, for a choice of guided visits to either Claude Monet’s stunning gardens at Giverny or magnificent Bizy Castle. Continue to Les Andelys with its Château Gaillard, built by England’s King Richard the Lionheart in 1196, and enjoy guided sightseeing. Then, on to Caudebec, where you choose between an included excursion to the poignant Normandy landing beaches or a fascinating “Taste of Normandy.” Visit Joan of Arc’s historic Rouen, and in Conflans, choose between a visit of Vincent van Gogh’s Auvers-sur-Oise or Napoleon and Josephine’s elegant Château de Malmaison before heading back to Paris. During your last day on the Seine, a Local Expert will show you some of the famous sights, such as the Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, and more!
