On National Cheese Lover’s Day, Azamara announced a brand-new land program offering travelers the opportunity to experience a cheese-making workshop on Mount Rigi in the Swiss Alps.
Add the Switzerland Glacier Express Train adventure to any Azamara voyages embarking or debarking from Amsterdam, Copenhagen or Bordeaux, at five nights pre-cruise or four nights post-cruise. On the Glacier Express, guests traverse the towering, 38-foot peaks of Zermatt to reach the resort town of St. Moritz. From there, they enjoy a full-day excursion to Mount Rigi for an authentic, hands-on cheese-making workshop with a local farmer and cheese expert. Guests learn about and taste multiple types of Swiss cheeses, amid panoramic views of lakes and Alpine peaks.
That’s not all the cruise line offers cheese fanatics, as Azamara boasts a number of immersive shore excursions with a cheese focus. On the 14-Night Norway Intensive Voyage, learn about the cheese-making process at family-led Tingvoll Farm, or taste incredible mozzarella di bufala cheeses at Barlotti Cheese Factory on the 7-Night Italy Intensive Voyage. And, where better to enjoy a pairing of wine cheese than in Bordeaux, on the 14-Night Wine and Culture Voyage?
