A Vegan Travel River Cruise is surely the loveliest way to enjoy a vegan holiday. You can discover fascinating places and meet new friends on board.



We will gladly help you to book your flights, transfers and make all travel arrangements. We also work with 2-3 partner hotels at each departure / arrival city so that you can enjoy another night or two in a well-rated hotel where you can be sure a decent vegan breakfast is served in the morning.


Our ships often dock in cities for many hours, sometimes even overnight. This is to ensure that you have time to yourself on shore, to explore the cities and scenery at your own pace. But you can experience the fascinating sights and wonders of nature even more comfortably and in-depth on excursions that we and our partners organize, which we offer you as an option. 

Shore excursions are a wonderful addition to your Vegan River Cruise. With our diverse, balanced land excursion program, we want to bring new people, unfamiliar cities, fascinating cultural centers, and unforgettable scenery closer to you. We cordially invite you, at your leisure, to look over everything that awaits you – as you know, anticipation is the best kind of pleasure!

And there are many good reasons to book your excursions in advance; Vegan Travel and selected local partners offer you:

-Seamlessly coordinated programs
-Excellent value for the money
-Payment in Euros through your ship account
-English-speaking tour guides with helpful information and insider tips

The most beautiful cities have always been built near bodies of water. Come on land and experience the best view of Europe you can get. Experienced local tour guides will accompany you on an inspiring journey of discovery to the most desirable locations, introducing you to new and wonderful lands and cultures. A wireless audio system is always included, which will help you with your individual exploration on land, ensuring that you don’t miss out on any of the information provided by your tour guide.

You can decide for yourself which excursions you would like to participate in – we provide detailed and  informative excursion info packets. Whether it’s a city walking tour, shopping trip, cultural immersion, health and wellness, nightlife, or individual bicycle tours (on your own bicycle or a rental), you’ll be astonished at how multifaceted and inspiring the world on the rivers of Europe really is.

More about shore excursions and pre-/post stays etc. will be published in early 2018.
