Avalon is happy to announce the return of our European river cruises. Many countries in Europe and around the world have opened their borders to fully-vaccinated Canadian travellers this year, and the list continues to grow.

Seine - July 27
Rhine - August 7
Danube - August 10
Rhône - August 31
Moselle - September 10
