Jewels of Europe with Grand Alpine with Scenic

 

Ever increasingly awe-inspiring scenery

The magnificent Swiss Alps will leave you breathless and dazed, a flawless start to a luxury European river cruise.

If snow-covered mountains and picture perfect scenery is your style, then Switzerland and Austria are ready to exceed your expectations. From the arresting landscapes and plunging gorges to the gigantic and jagged Matterhorn, you’ll find every aspect of your alpine adventure exhilarating. After exploring Europe’s great urban centres, there’s nothing quite as wonderful as breathing in fresh alpine air, and while there may be bigger mountains elsewhere in the world, they don’t come any more beautiful, or dramatic than the peaks you’ll witness here.
