Ready, Set, Get Active With AmaWaterways Wellness Program

For every traveler who is looking forward to relaxing on their luxurious river cruise, AmaWaterways knows others are seeking to give their fitness routines an extra boost. Guests are treated to a variety of guided biking and hiking adventures when they sail with AmaWaterways.

Imagine cycling through France’s celebrated Bordeaux area or the equally distinguished Cotes du Rhone region. While Germany’s breathtaking Moselle River Valley provides bikers and hikers with the perfect backdrop of vineyard-covered hills. Hiking up to fortified castles in magnificent cities like Prague and Budapest offers guests a chance to experience a destination from a different perspective. Or should guests prefer a more Zen approach to fitness, yoga on the sun deck is the perfect way to start the day.

Cool Off, Sweat It Out, or Melt Tension Away
The ships offer a refreshing pool, sun-deck jogging track, and fitness center with cardiovascular equipment and weights to help guests maintain their overall fitness goals in between hiking and biking. Guests can also enjoy numerous exercise classes, including cardio, core strengthening and circuit training—all led by a professionally trained wellness instructor. Of course, should they prefer a more tranquil approach to wellness, a soothing onboard massage will nourish their mind, body and soul.

Health-Conscious Cuisine
For those who would like a meal rich in flavor, but not rich in calories, AmaWaterways always incorporates healthy food options into breakfast, lunch and dinner. Bountiful breakfasts include omelets made-to-order using cage-free eggs; lunch tempts with an array of salads using locally sourced seasonal ingredients; and dinner offers a range of delicious entrees, including fresh fish and sustainably raised meat. Delicious vegetarian and gluten-free choices will be equally enticing and flavorful.

Fun Facts:

  • Highly prized truffles from Provence (flavorful and cholesterol-free)
  • Delicate, antioxidant-rich apricots from the Wachau Valley, known to be high in fiber
