Watching centuries of history slowly pass by while cruising is an adventure in itself. But what if elevating your heart rate a few extra beats is more your speed? Meet your Avalon Adventure Host℠. In addition to included active excursions, your Adventure Host holds the gear, maps, and guidance for optional and free-time pursuits on board and on shore. With a visit to our Adventure Center, you can check out a bike for a scenic ride through town, grab a Nordic walking stick and hike to a hillside vineyard or castle, or join a jog or active walk through the great cities or the great outdoors. Whether you’re looking for an optional kayaking excursion or a complimentary yoga class on the Sky Deck, your Adventure Host can make it happen.
As one of Avalon Waterways’ new Adventure Hosts – now available on every Suite Ship in Europe – Hristo Stamenov spends his time helping travelers explore heart-pumping discoveries on and off the ship.
With help from Adventure Hosts like Hristo, Avalon guests can check out a bike (from onboard their Suite Ship) for a scenic ride through town. They can grab a Nordic walking stick and hike to a hillside vineyard or castle. Or they can enjoy a complimentary fitness or strength and conditioning class – including yoga – on the Sky Deck or in the Panorama Lounge.
