You travel for lots of reasons. To open your mind to new ideas, open your heart to people from other cultures, and engage the world with all your senses. We’ve created every Vantage journey with these aspirations in mind, and so much more, so you’ll get the most from every moment. Join us, and indulge yourself in a wide variety of activities, amenities, and features that cater to your total wellbeing.
Soft adventure and easy fitness at a pace you choose
Please your palate with cuisine that is not only delicious, but healthy. Feel invigorated with fun and adventurous activities and fitness options — then wind down and relax with your wellness and relaxation in mind, whether on land or on the world’s great waterways. Along the way, our unique learning and social activities help you immerse yourself in local culture.
From the vineyard-covered banks of Germany’s Rhine River to the staggering jagged peaks of Chilean Patagonia, our tours are designed to help you get out and explore, no matter your activity level. Ideally paced and full of options, our trips put you in control, whether you want to “do it all” or unplug and do nothing. Join a walking tour to the next village. Swim in a cove right off the bow of your Adriatic mega-yacht. Or cycle alongside a Dutch canal with one of the complimentary bikes we offer on board. Plus, you’ll have ample free time to experience the world in your own unique fashion. Onboard enrichment includes cultural activities like painting or folk-dancing on our special interest cruises, culinary demonstrations, and much more!
Connect with the world — and each other!
It’s easy to form special bonds with new people when you are sharing unforgettable moments. Many of our travelers have made lifelong friends while on a Vantage trip. We strengthen those bonds with a host of social, cultural, and educational activities. Hoist a pint on a Dublin pub crawl. Share travel dreams at a “Where to Next?” party. Compare notes at a cooking class. Or compare cultures at a Home Hosted dinner with a local family.
A little pampering for the spirit…
Deluxe accommodations, many with indulgent spa facilities and health and wellness options, are the hallmark of every Vantage tour. So after a full day of exploration, reward yourself. Take a soothing sauna and steam at your elegant hotel. Or, on Vantage’s privately owned river ships, work out in the gym, jog on the track, enjoy morning stretching or yoga, and melt into a massage in your onboard spa as you cruise to your next port. In suites, settle in for the ultimate relaxation with complimentary packing and unpacking services.
And for the taste buds . . .
You can tell a lot about a culture from its food. That’s why you’ll enjoy a wide range of culinary experiences, from lunch prepared by a local village family in their home to wine and cheese tastings at vineyards and farms. And when you sit down at the dining table at our hotels and aboard our river and ocean ships, you’ll savor locally-inspired cuisine carefully prepared. Care for a sample?
