Travelling is rejuvenating

From nature therapy in a Bavarian Forest to a polar plunge in Antarctic waters, travel enriches the body and mind like few other experiences do – even more so when you travel with Scenic.

Choose from a morning yoga sessions or the state-of-the-art on board gym. Scenic is the first and only river cruise line to feature the wonderfully healing Salt Therapy Lounge*.

Through a variety of distinctive touches such as historic hotels for Scenic Special Stays and iconic, luxurious rail journeys to take in the scenery, your holidays will be both wonderfully relaxing and truly unforgettable. 

Travel helps forge new friendships 

Travelling has the incredible ability to build a bridge across cultures, beliefs and boundaries, and bring people of different nationalities and ethnicities together as one. Whether you travel solo or with your partner, you will always return home with a host of new friends and a heart full of cherished memories.  

With a range of spacious public spaces on board Scenic Eclipse and our river cruise ships in Europe and Asia, you will have a variety of venues to socialise with your co-travellers. Moreover, from welcome dinners to farewell meals, and exclusive Sundowner events in memorable locations, there are many occasions to forge and nurture new friendships. With no more than 200 guests during polar voyages and 228 guests on board in non-polar regions, Scenic Eclipse offers the ultimate intimate discovery yacht experience.

Our 5-star Scenic Space-Ships on Europe’s waterways and boutique river ships in South East Asia only host up to 163 guests and 68 guests, respectively. This means, you will always find a quiet corner on board to read a book by yourself, and ample privacy to catch up with a new friend over a drink or a meal.   
Through a range of local experiences and activities, you are sure to make local friends in the destinations you visit. Enjoy a progressive dinner with three different local families during a land journey through Norfolk Island, a home-hosted lunch in Portugal on a Douro river cruise, an interactive session with a local bear expert in Canada, and exciting night market visits in South East Asia to socialise with the locals.   

Travel reveals fascinating new cultures 

The world is filled with vibrant and intriguing cultures and the only way to truly appreciate them is by experiencing them first-hand. After all, some of the best keepsakes from an extraordinary holiday are the local skills we acquire. Maybe it is learning a few words of Norf'k, Norfolk Island’s unique language, or creating your own Dreamtime painting in Australia's Red Centre, or even mastering the art of traditional bread making from a Portuguese nana. Scenic’s handcrafted itineraries are designed to take you the cultural heart of the destinations you visit. 

Our exclusive Scenic Enrich experiences are specially created by our expert Journey Designers to immerse you into the uniqueness of each region you visit. In the rugged Australian outback, you will enjoy an exclusive visit to the 1,500-year-old Boab Prison Tree to learn about its cultural and historical significance. In artistic Austria, witness a spectacular private Viennese classical concert within the opulent interior of Palais Liechtenstein. And in mystical Cambodia, be spellbound by a Gala Dinner at an Angkor temple featuring Apsara dancers. 

Travel brings exciting new experiences every day 

The wonderful thing about travelling is that, no two days are the same. You might feel like taking a kayak out to explore secret Mediterranean grottos one day, but the next day, you might want to sit back and admire the scenery from your suite balcony with a glass of Champagne and canapés.  
Perhaps today you want to explore beyond the majestic Arctic fjords on Scenic Eclipse’s two on board helicopters^, and tomorrow you might like to dive up to 300 metres under the water’s surface in Scenic Neptune^, the on board submarine. A discovery voyage is filled with adventure from one day to the next, and our wide range of discovery excursions led by an expert Discovery Team help you make the most of it. 
Our included Scenic Freechoice options help you customise your travels to suit your pace, passion, and mood on a given day. From staying on board your 5-star Scenic Space-Ship for an authentic German beer-tasting event to embarking on an exhilarating cycling tour of historic Cologne, you’ll never run out of options.  
Explore the Australian Red Centre on camel back or as a pillion passenger of a Harley-Davidson™ bike. Whizz through Ho Chi Minh City’s bustling food markets on a Vespa or float above the Angkor temples on a tethered balloon ride. In New Zealand, take a thrilling Wilderness Jet trip or meander through the quirky ‘The Lord of the Rings’ sets. Explore a fun new included experience every day. 

Always keep your sense of wonder

The reasons why we love to travel are infinite and while the world may have recently changed, we can’t wait to indulge our wanderlust by taking you soon on a handcrafted journey. From the icy landscapes of the Polar Regions to the rainforests of Tasmania, the black bears of Canada to the kiwi birds of New Zealand, and the sophisticated cities of Europe to the mystical temples of South East Asia, the incredible wonders of the world await you.
