Uniworld signs wellness partnership with Butterfield & Robinson

Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection is expanding its active Wellness on the Water offering with a partnership with Butterfield & Robinson, one of the world’s premiere active travel companies.

Two collaborative B&R and Uniworld itineraries on the Danube and Rhône rivers, which launched to the US market in 2016, are now available with sterling pricing for the UK market, and the brands have come together to add a new luxury cruise offering for 2018, Rhine River Cruise Biking.

Departing from Basel, Switzerland with port stops through France and Germany, the new eight day trip explores terraced wine regions, medieval castles and UNESCO heritage sites along 1,000 kilometres of historical river bends and bike trails.

“In addition to unique, unforgettable active travel itineraries, B&R is committed to providing travellers with cultural experiences underscored with luxurious settings,” said Norman Howe, president, Butterfield & Robinson.

“As such, we’re very pleased to encourage our travellers to ‘unpack once’ as they make their home aboard Uniworld’s luxury fleet of beautifully-designed ships for a week of active travel.”

The Uniworld and Butterfield & Robinson itineraries along the Danube, Rhône and now Rhine rivers, offer unprecedented on-board comfort, fine dining, personalisation and first-class service.

“We partnered with Butterfield & Robinson to fulfil our shared desire to provide guests with unforgettable and unique travel experiences,” said Ellen Bettridge, president, Uniworld.

“In 2018, we continue to expand this partnership across more of Uniworld’s most popular Rhine itineraries, pairing the best of river cruising with curated and active exploration by bike.”
