Land Discoveries®

Have you explored the many Land Discoveries available on your voyage? Guided by local experts, these small-group onshore excursions are a great way to get to know local life and culture in every port, and meet local people, too. There’s something for everyone: adventurous hikes and bike rides, shopping and dining, historic sites and neighborhoods, vineyard tours, and much more.

You’ll enjoy clear advantages when booking your Land Discoveries through Azamara. We’ve got in-depth knowledge of every port’s highlights and loveliest places, and are often able to offer special excursions that you won’t find anywhere else. Our team supports you before your voyage and onboard, too, so you never have to worry about itinerary changes or tour cancellations—we’ve got you covered. You also have the flexibility to change your plans without incurring a cancellation fee for tours that don’t include flights, hotels or special events. Our Land Discoveries groups get priority departure times from the ship in every port, and the ship will wait for you if your return is delayed. Last but not least, all Land Discoveries are led by experienced, reliable and insured tour operators, and you’ll never be surprised by hidden fees. When you book with us you’re in good hands.

Do you have a Land Discoveries shore excursion already in mind? Book as early as four days prior to your sailing date and take advantage of early booking savings.

Pre- and post-voyage hotel stays

It’s always a good idea to arrive a few days before boarding your ship, both to acclimate and to explore. Many of our guests also like extending their vacation at the end of their voyage. We can make it easy on both ends by handling all the arrangements for pre- and post-voyage hotel stays, including transfers, porterage, breakfast and taxes. Hotel accommodations are available in all major ports of Azamara departure and arrival.
