Drifting down the Danube River allows travellers to see multiple destinations, stunning sights, natural wildlife and diverse cultures in one trip.
Flowing through 10 central and eastern European countries and some of their capital cities including Vienna, Budapest and Bratislava, the Danube river is the second longest in Europe and flows through more countries than any other river in the world. Starting near Germany’s Black Forest as the Breg meets the Brigach it travels across to Austria, through Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova and Ukraine where it runs through the Danube Delta into the Black Sea.
As river cruising has become a desirable and inspiring way to travel, the Danube offers travellers historical sites, roman history, fairy tale castles, cliff views, forest land, incredible architecture, small villages, large cities and a continuous display of stunning landscapes and culinary diversity.
Award winning river cruise company Avalon Waterways have created extraordinary itineraries for their guests to fully enjoy this legendary river.
Pam Hoffee, managing director, Avalon Waterways said: “Along this legendary path, Avalon Waterways has created a boatful of extraordinary river cruise vacations that take travellers beyond the river Danube’s beautiful views to delve into breath taking stories, personalised experiences and untethered exploration that forever shapes the way they choose to see and experience the world.
“Avalon provides travellers with nearly 30 river cruise itineraries, ranging from 4 to 27 days, that feature a plethora of sail and see options along the Danube River. Avalon has an average of 60 percent more Danube itineraries than other river cruise lines.”
“We take great pride in inviting travellers to cruise against the stream on the Danube River,” said Pam. “In addition to our Avalon Choice excursions and Adventure Hosts on every itinerary, our relationship with Globus, Cosmos and Monograms gives travellers exclusive access to Your Way cruising which seamlessly provides them with options for immersive sightseeing access, hotel accommodations and transfers in European cities before and after each cruising vacation.”
