Sail the Open Ocean or River Enjoying a Spa Experience
There’s nothing quite like being on the water. Whether you chose to embark on your adventure trip via raft, jet boat, river boat or cruise ship, there are plenty of active adventures to be found throughout the world on its many rivers and oceans.
Adventure vacations take on a whole new meaning when you choose to explore the water by smaller boats. From Alaska’s Denali National Park to Colorado’s Arkansas River, you can find thrilling whitewater rafting excursions or visit New Zealand for an exciting jet boat ride down the Shotover River.
For a less intense adventure, plan a trip aboard a hotel barge, which is a small river boat accommodating between six and 20 passengers, to see the stunning beauty and rich history of Europe with European Waterways. The intimate river cruises sail through various regions, including Italy, France, England, Ireland and more. Viking River Cruises navigate the Danube, Rhine and Elbe Rivers in Europe with Viking longships. You could even set sail along the Nile in Egypt, Yangtze in China or Volga in Russia.
For those who prefer large cruise ships, head out on an ocean adventure with Windstar Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line or Princess Cruises. Princess Cruises offers active adventures throughout the Caribbean while both Windstar and Norwegian sail in many places around the world. There are tons of adventure vacations just waiting for you to explore, plus you’ll have plenty of opportunities to kick back, relax and enjoy the onboard amenities.
