Lazy River Trips
by Bridget Levin, Tastemaker in Residence
River barge cruises, a growing travel trend, are exploding in popularity along the world’s most beautiful rivers. It’s a great way to see a country from a unique vantage point and you only have to unpack once!
The tours give you a glimpse into unknown little villages, as well as bucket list cities and sights.
The offerings can be themed, luxurious, casual or customized and range from a long weekend to multiple weeks. You can be active (think bikes to hop off onto miles of winding country roads) or walking-based, but all are laced with interesting activities onboard or off the boat.
Do your research to find the location, demographics and activities that are exactly what you’re looking for- the options are becoming endless!
