Uniworld is expanding its luxury river cruise portfolio through a partnership with Butterfield and Robinson – announcing a Rhine River Cruise Biking tour in May 2018, departing from Basel, Switzerland with port stops through France and Germany.

The new eight day trip explores terraced wine regions, medieval castles and UNESCO heritage sites along 1,000 kilometres of historical river bends and bike trails. Rhine River Cruise Biking is the latest in a partnership between Uniworld and Butterfield and Robinson, the world’s premier active travel company.

The newly announced biking tour also complements Uniworld and B&R itineraries along the Danube and Rhône rivers; offering unprecedented onboard comfort, fine dining, personalization and first-class service.

Fiona Dalton, Managing Director of Uniworld Australia commented; “Our partnership with Butterfield and Robinson partnership combines boutique river cruising with curated and active exploration by bike along Uniworld’s most popular Rhine itineraries. We are excited to fulfil a shared to desire to provide guests with an unforgettable and unique travel experience.”

“In addition to unique, unforgettable active travel itineraries, B&R is committed to providing travellers with cultural experiences underscored with luxurious settings,” says Norman Howe, President & CEO, Butterfield & Robinson. “As such, we’re very pleased to encourage our travellers to ‘unpack once’ as they make their home aboard Uniworld’s luxury fleet of beautifully-designed ships for a week of active travel.”

The voyage by port and pedal includes a stay aboard the S.S. Antoinette, Uniworld’s first “Super Ship” with 67 uniquely designed staterooms and nine suites. Daily biking excursions will lead travellers through the Black Forest and Wiese Valley in Germany, along the river to Obernai and Strasbourg and to the colourful foothills of the Vosges Mountains in France. The last stops through Heidelberg, Koblenz and Cologne reinforce the reach of the Rhine, a former trade route dating back a millennium.

The 7-night Rhine River Cruise Biking tour runs in May, June and September 2018 from US$6,995.
