ABOUT THE TOUR

Rhine Discovery – Rhine in Flames Cruise

Join us as we experience the spectacular Rhine in Flames Festival, with many fantastic ports of call along the way! Every year, the Rhine lights up as Europe’s biggest parade of illuminated ships sail along its waters. The river valley basks in the glow of thousands of red Bengal lights and a kaleidoscope of colours fill the night’s sky as the spectacular hilltop firework displays welcome the flotilla. With other highlights including visits to cities such as Cologne, Koblenz and Mainz, you’re guaranteed a holiday to remember.
