Highlights of European Rivers
Serenity is at the heart of river cruising in Europe. There's a shoreside whirl of medieval cites – with their sprawling history and contemporary romance – and multiple cultures and cuisines. Aboard a riverboat though, the world is tranquil. River cruising provides the perfect opportunity to blend sights and respite.
European river cruises operate from Spring to Autumn, so the weather will change with the seasons. Cruises also run from Portugal in the South, where temperatures in mid summer reach the 80's to Russia
In the north where the daytime temperature is around 50f/10c at the start of the season and rises to the high 60's by mid summer.
Cruises generally commence in Spring (March) and the main season ends in September/October, however a limited number of cruises are available up to Christmas and New Year. The Russian season is shorter and runs from April to October.
