Explore all the routes and their own unique vibe and purpose below:


The Danube Route

23 June - 21 July

  • Start point:
    Donaueschingen, Germany
  • End point:
    Danube Delta, Romania

Sometimes called “the Amazon of Europe” because of its majestic delta on the Black Sea, the Danube is certainly a river of superlatives. 2.730  kilometres long, The Danube is the most international waterway on the planet, flowing across more borders than any other river in the world, through ten countries, seven of which are on the road of our travellers Susann and Kenneth. The Danube’s basin is the most biodiverse on our continent, an amazing biosphere reserve (ever heard of the “Danube Dinosaur”?). At the same time, the Danube is an important commercial waterway, for transport as well as for tourism. To make sure all of the many resources are well managed and developing positively, all countries along this mighty river have to work together.

Follow our travellers on their journey from the source of the Danube – which is not as easy to spot as its delta! – in Southern Germany, along the great capital cities of Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and Belgrade, and find out why this river is so important to Europe.

The Mediterranean Route

14 April - 12 May

  • Start point:
    Athens, Greece
  • End point:
    Lascaux, France

Countries on the Mediterranean have been home to some of the most forward-thinking civilisations in our history. Take a walk through history and soak up the style, flare and food of the Mediterranean!

The Atlantic Route

19 May - 16 June

  • Start point:
    Cabo da Roca, Portugal
  • End point:

The Baltic Route

28 July - 25 August

  • Start point:
    Rovaniemi, Finland
