Europe’s waterways criss-cross regions of breath-taking natural splendour, guiding you through landscapes free from roads, where nature reigns supreme. And it’s within these remote, peaceful lands that you can encounter the continent’s beloved winged visitors – from pelicans to cormorants, and everything in between.
The beauty of cruising Europe’s rivers is that many birds are attracted to the water, so you stand every chance of seeing a stork snatch a fish from the depths or a swift circling on high with its eye on the fertile riverbank. You’ll also have the perfect vantage point from which to raise your binoculars, with the open-air Scenic Sun Deck granting a 360° view.
So, if you love birdwatching or are keen to learn more about Europe’s precious wildlife, we’re here with a guide to exploring birdlife on the rivers of the continent.
