Emerald ACTIVE

A new range of outdoor activities to suit our more active guests

As Emerald Waterways continues to revolutionise the way our guests take a river cruise, we have created a range of exciting EmeraldACTIVE experiences. Geared towards the more active and outgoing guests, EmeraldACTIVE activities range from guided bike tours through Europe’s countryside to comprehensive hikes beyond city limits, the EmeraldACTIVE excursions are completely optional and, more importantly, included in the price. Providing even more great value for money.

With at least one EmeraldACTIVE excursion included in all of our cruise itineraries, you’ll have the chance to explore wondrous locations such as Wertheim Castle in Germany or bike around Belgrade. Alternatively, a number of our itineraries offer unguided EmeraldACTIVE experiences, allowing you to hire out one of our modern bicycles and explore the port of call at your own pace

Guided bike tour between Durnstein & Melk

Enjoy a mostly flat 23-mile bike tour through rolling vineyards and quaint towns in the Wachau Valley. On this unique EmeraldACTIVE excursion, look forward to stopping for lunch on the banks of the Danube where you may even see your Star-Ship pass by which will later meet you at the next docking point. The duration of this guided bike tour is approximately four hours which you can look forward to on our Splendours of Europe, Danube Delights and Danube Explorer river cruises.

Guided nature walk through the Black Forest

Available on our Jewels of the Rhine river cruise, you can enjoy a guided nature walk through the woods, starting in Breisach where your ship will dock. Lasting around an hour, this insightful tour will take place in the afternoon and is the perfect way to partake in a unique experience, whilst also working up an appetite for your evening meal on-board your Star-Ship.



Explore Europe with our on-board bikes


All Emerald Waterways Star-Ships carry a number of bicycles that guests can borrow during the cruise. They're a fun and practical way to explore the many destinations we visit during our deluxe river cruises.

* Please note, on the Emerald Radiance the indoor heated pool is replaced with a Serenity pool on the Sun Deck
