Go Active

Exhilarating ways to discover Europe in 2017

Looking for more experiential, active and immersive adventures abroad? Uniworld’s luxurious, all-inclusive river cruises in Europe offer a tantalizing menu of exclusive Go Active travel experiences—everything from golf to kayaking to expertly guided hikes and bike rides. It’s a “Uniquely Uniworld” way to explore new destinations!

Itinerary Highlights

Golf d’Étretat & Mont-Saint-Aignan

For the first time, we’re offering guests two opportunities to play golf during their journey. Golf d’Étretat is a links course on Normandy’s Alabaster Coast, as challenging as it is visually spectacular and one of France’s top-rated courses. You can also play Mont-Saint-Aignan near Rouen, ideal for beginners and veterans alike.

Exclusive Excursions

Experience a number of shore excursions offered only by Uniworld, including a visit to Sainte-Mère-Église, the first French town to be liberated in WWII, a tale immortalized in the film The Longest Day; a “Do as the Locals Do” walking tour of the Latin Quarter in Paris; and a guided bike ride from Vernon to Monet’s glorious gardens at Giverny.

D-Day Beaches or Bayeux Tapestry

Visit either the American landing beaches, Omaha and Utah, or Juno beach, site of the Canadian troop landing. Another option is an excursion to see the 11th-century Bayeux tapestry depicting the Battle of Hastings. All groups will also visit the American Cemetery and Memorial honoring fallen U.S. soldiers.

Rouen & Honfleur

Explore the medieval streets of Rouen, where you’ll visit Notre-Dame Cathedral and see the cross marking the spot where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake centuries ago. Honfleur is an enchanting seaside town, captured on canvas by generations of artists who have fallen under the spell of its picturesque harbor and gracious homes.

S.S. Joie de Vivre – NEW for 2017
