Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection has partnered with active tour operator Butterfield & Robinson on a new set of travel experiences for guests in Europe. The two companies have created an active itinerary on Uniworld’s eight-day Enchanting Danube departures, taking travelers through four countries and three capitals on a journey from Budapest, Hungary, to Passau, Germany.
Debuting in 2016 on select Enchanting Danube departures, travelers can join an exclusive biking excursion led by Butterfield & Robinson. Guests will cycle along the Danube River bike path, Europe’s longest dedicated bike path, from Germany to Bratislava. Throughout their cycling adventure, they’ll be treated to stunning scenery with medieval strongholds, towering castle ruins and gorgeous vineyards. In addition to discovering UNESCO World Heritage sites in Budapest and Vienna, and various sights in between in Salzburg, Linz, Melk, Durnstein and Passau, they will delve into the flavors of the region with exclusive events ranging from an organic wine tasting of the Wachau Valley’s famous Rieslings to a saffron workshop to beer and bratwurst in Bavaria.
Active excursions are available on select September 2016 departures onboard the River Beatrice and select sailings between May and September 2017 sailings onboard the S.S. Maria Theresa.
