The world’s great rivers evoke a sense of romance and timelessness, linking grand cities, forgotten villages, and endless countryside. On an all-inclusive National Geographic River Cruise, operated in partnership with Scenic Luxury River Cruises & Tours, a world-class riverboat is your base to explore historic waterways. Choose from a wide range of guided excursions every day, from hikes and bike rides to in-depth experiences that focus on the natural world, culture, and history. You’ll travel with a National Geographic expert, who will give talks on board and accompany daily outings; a National Geographic photographer joins all European sailings to share tips on technique and artistry. Along the way, enjoy the utmost in all-inclusive service and amenities: your own butler, delectable meals served in a variety of dining venues, an open bar, spa services, Wi-Fi, GPS-driven self-guided tours that you can take on the boat and off, spacious suites and lounges, and so much more.
