Hiking and cruising, the perfect combination

Do you like cruising? Do you enjoy rambling too? We have the perfect holiday for you: CroisiEurope's cruise'n hike itineraries. Following qualified mountain guides, our walks in Croatia, on the Douro, Saône and Rhône, Danube and Rhine are very popular themed cruises open to all fitness levels.

No stress - just people sharing the pleasure of enjoying nice landscapes, picturesque spots, castles, on footpaths or trails following the ridge of the mountains, along rivers or seas and coasts, or even picturesque towns, where you will be invited to walk on historic paving stones in Budapest in Hungary, Vienna in Austria, or Strasbourg along the Rhine.

These easy-to-medium hiking tours, which take on average 2 to 4 hours, are of various levels of ascent. Depending on the day’s planned outing, some hikes can take up the entire day (up to 7 hours), so a picnic break with a packed lunch, prepared by our team of chefs on board, will be provided. 

For the those accompanying the rambling guests and not joining the daily walks, we offer a dedicated excursion programme, which sometimes meets the ramblers at some stage in the tour.

At the end of each day, everybody gathers on board to have a good time together, enjoying the kind of pleasant moments so characteristic of cruising.
