3 Brand New Tours to Blow Your Mind
Brand new tours: Bike & Boat, Rail & Hike and Red Hot Spain!
1. Rhine & Neckar by Bike and Boat
Kick off your adventure in the charming town of Coblenz, where you board your floating hotel. Enjoy cycling along the ancient military road until you reach your first destination, the cap
tivating city of Mainz. Explore many museums and half-timbered taverns. You will go back in time to dragon slaying days with a visit to the Nibelungen gate, and the bewitching city of Worms.
Relax as you spend your days following the river to the beautiful cities of Heidelberg and Eberbach; enjoy the city life and exploring the many little squares filled with delicious pastry shops and cafés. As you cycle onwards, you will visit the majestic Hornberg fortress, one of the most beautiful in the region. Bike and Boat tours are the best way to explore an area as you enjoy the beautiful cities and daily routes at your own pace, while your floating hotel, MS Patria, follows along to greet you each evening.
2. West Highland Line: Rail & Hike
Ride the Jacobite Steam Train, made famous in Harry Potter, as you rail and hike the West Highland Line! Combine a walk along the UK’s most famous national trail with rail travel on one of the ‘World’s Best Train Journeys’ on a journey through Scotland’s western highlands.
Boarding the train in the vibrant city of Glasgow, the West Highland Line initially takes you west, following the Clyde coastline through a landscape rich in historical heritage. Cutting north through mountain passes, the train follows the ‘bonnie banks’ of Loch Lomond to arrive at Ardlui, nestled at the head of the Loch and affording sunset views across to Ben Lomond and the peaks beyond. Follow the tracks across remote Rannoch Moor, home to regal stags and explore the paths and trails at Glen Nevis with an option to climb Ben Nevis himself, Britain's highest peak!
