Sweep across the heart of Europe on the illustrious Rhine River, one of the great passageways of the continent. From its source in the Swiss Alps to its mouth at the North Sea, the Rhine flows through six countries, introducing you to a collection of unforgettable sights and experiences — from the majestic Rhine Gorge to the medieval splendour of Heidelberg and Rüdesheim. Your time on this ageless waterway begins in the Netherlands, where you’ll enjoy the countless highlights of Amsterdam and the unique customs of Volendam and Edam. Cologne beckons with its exquisite Gothic cathedral, whilst the historic allure of Cochem is yours to discover during a stop in Koblenz. After travelling through the Black Forest, you’ll arrive at Basel, before returning to the UK.
