Cruise'n Walk:

Combine cruising and hiking

The rivers often flow through the middle of valleys lined with remarkably beautiful hills.

It therefore makes sense to combine the tranquility of a laid-back cruise with energetic discovery walks.

Ramblers of all levels can enjoy walking along scenic footpaths and pay a visit to local sites to sample culinary delicacies. The goal of a hiking cruise is not to break any records, but to get up close and personal with the unique landscape by offering an invigorating trek, combining the effort of hiking. It is for this reason, that we offer hikes of a duration of two to three hours of walk at a calm pace. 

You'll be led by one or more certified mountain guides. We'll also provide an onboard presentation about the history and flora to be found along the way.

The program is available on multiple itineraries and countries such as the Canary islands, France and Corsica, Croatia, Portugal, Italy or along the Danube.



Where and when to cruise in 2024?

While there are still cruises with great special offers for late summer and fall, we know you are starting to think about your 2024 cruise vacations. In this article we are excited to share what's new for later this year and 2024. 

In this article, we will provide destination ideas and tips to help select the best cruise for you.

Before choosing a destination, you'll need to decide on the time of year that suits you best. Each season has its own characteristics.

Take a cruise in winter to enjoy the milder climate and quieter tourist traffic of Southern Europe. Opt for the peak river cruise season, from March to October, for a wide choice of destinations throughout Europe, and enjoy the summer sun. Discover the world by setting off in autumn or late winter for far-flung, more exotic destinations. [...]

My Family Travels, Kyle McCarthy

A Mekong River trip is a fascinating, deep dive into Indochina, the heart of Southeast Asia. The peninsula labeled Indochine by French colonists comprises today's very distinct countries of Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia.


The enchantingly unique way to see one of Europe's longest rivers

The Times, Sue Bryant, September 4th, 2023

A gentle sailing on a traditional paddle-wheeler through Bohemia takes in filmic castles, European art history and gruesome insight into Austria's Franz Ferdinand. [...]


Life in the slow lane on a barge cruise in the south of France

Cruise & Travel, Katie McGonagle, August 17th, 2023

Life moves at its own tempo here in the south of France, which rather suits the predictably slow pace of this barge cruise, where passing walkers and horse riders overtake the tiny vessel [...]
