What is an adventure cruise?


An adventure cruise is one of the best ways to immerse yourself in the most remote, natural spaces in the world. Smaller cruise ships provide the opportunity to dock in more unique ports of call and present a more intimate on board experience.

There are so many reasons to book an adventure cruise. Sometimes, the furthest corners of the earth can only be reached by sea. Adventure cruises lead you to these corners, exploiting previously unexplored parts of the world and providing the opportunity to immerse yourself in new experiences.

An adventure cruise isn’t a typical relaxing holiday where cocktails are served all day as the sun beams down on you. Rather, adventure cruises have a more go-with-the-flow attitude. Captain’s have the ability to stop as they please as wildlife viewing opportunities present themselves and perfect kayaking tides arise.

What’s more, adventure cruises typically feature on board experts who are there every step of the way to enhance your voyage with their incredible knowledge. These same experts accompany you on shore excursions, imparting their wisdom on the local culture, history and nature.


Where can you sail on an adventure cruise?

Norway is an adventure-lovers playground. Take a hike through the dramatic and distinctive fjord of Hjørundfjorden with its breathtaking vertical cliffs and jagged walls, enjoy a bike tour through the medieval city of Trondheim, considered the most bicycle-friendly city in Norway, go dog-sledging with huskies in Tromsø or embark on a kayaking adventure through the fjords.

In Australia, explore the Great Barrier Reef, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, discover the beauty of the Blue Mountains with its miles of eucalyptus trees and impressive rock formations, trek through the oldest continual rainforest or seek out impressive wildlife like dingo’s, koalas, kangaroo and wombats.

Head to South East Asia to discover the adventures that await. Be charmed by the floating markets in Vietnam, explore the complex ancient temples of Angkor Wat, prepare to be amazed by the enormity of the Great Wall of China, the longest wall in the world or marvel at the beauty of Myanmar’s temples on foot or during a once-in-a-lifetime balloon ride.
