Enjoy the opportunity to stay active and take in the stunning views with our unique EmeraldACTIVE programme
. From guided hikes and bike tours† to private canoeing lessons, these activities and excursions are an exciting way to see a location from another perspective.
As well as regular walking city tours, you’re invited to participate in guided hikes beyond city limits. You’ll have access to our in-cabin walking poles, should you need them. Wander through the vineyards of Southern France, savouring a truly sensory experience for wine and outdoor lovers alike. Or choose to explore Germany’s Black Forest, learning about the native nature and wildlife of this fairytale expanse.
There’s no denying that cycling has become a big part of the culture in many European cities. If you’d prefer not to walk, you can enjoy the freedom of cycling to get out and about thanks to our on board bicycles. Our Star-Ships carry a number of bicycles, letting you join a guided bike tour through the rolling countryside or weave a route along the riverside. The bikes are also available to take out at your leisure, letting you go on your own independent bike ride at each port.†
For those seeking adventure off the ground, we also offer canoeing lessons on select river cruise itineraries. You’ll learn from an expert instructor, navigating serene waters in exhilarating style.
With at least one EmeraldACTIVE excursion per river cruise, don’t miss the chance to participate in this exciting way to stay active while you travel. Simply look out for the EmeraldACTIVE logo within your desired river cruise itinerary.
