Active

EXPLORATION IN MOTION

For the traveler who thrives on motion and action, Avalon has created a broad menu of energetic excursions. You might find yourself on a hike tour in Val D'Enfer, on a biking tour around Vienna, or even on a canoe trip on the Danube. From a climbing trip up to a medieval castle to hiking in the forest, these included excursions pack real get-up-and-go for those who like to do the same.

 

Discovery

ENGAGING EXPERIENCES

For those who believe that life is about trying new things, Avalon presents an inspiring selection of interactive excursions created for the different kinds of “doer.” These hands-on experiences include a painting class in Amsterdam, tasting locally produced cheese and beer at an ancient abbey, or saying “good morning” to Vienna on an early-riser walk to a quaint café for breakfast like a local. Traditions come to life as you shift from observer to participant in a variety of creative and engaging endeavors.
