Starting its journey in the Swiss Alps, the Rhine flows 766 miles before reaching Rotterdam. Europe’s second largest river, and undoubtedly one of its most important, the Rhine traverses six different countries and shows off Northern Europe at its finest.
This scenic river cruise will take in forested hillsides, craggy cliff edges and impossible vertical villages. A 65-kilometre stretch of the river, the Rhine Gorge, is a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its Gothic churches, ruined Medieval castles and idyllic riverside towns.
A river cruise along this gloriously romantic river will serve up delightful quaysides, magnificent locks and wildlife aplenty. All of this is easily matched, if not bettered, by the offerings of the charming towns that you’ll visit along the way.
