Uniworld provide guests with more European itineraries and choices than any other river cruise line, all designed to delve deeply into each locale with onshore excursions and onboard cultural enrichment programmes and entertainment.

Enjoy expertly planned shore excursions hosted by English-speaking local experts, with options to personalise, including Choice Is Yours, Go Active, Do as the Locals Do, Village Day, and Gentle Walking programmes and a host of exclusive experiences designed for Uniworld guests only.

Go Active

In select locations, join us on our guided “Go Active” hiking and biking excursions led by local naturalists or sports guides. They provide the perfect way to stay fit, all while learning about local history, flora, and fauna. 

Gentle Walking

Along the rivers, life moves at a slower pace. We took that lifestyle to heart when we created our guided “Gentle walking” excursions. They offer the chance to explore at a more relaxed pace should you wish for time to linger, to poke your head in a few more charming shops, or to meditate on a beautiful painting.

Do as the Locals do

“Do as the Locals do” provides authentic encounters offering guests the chance to walk in the shoes of local citizens, uncover locals’ favourite places to meet, and taste beloved regional food.

Village Day

The exclusive “Village day” programme provides a similar up-close look at rural European and Russian towns, with visits to local homes and workshops.
