The Scenic Story

Established in 1986, we are a proudly Australian-founded company, taking our guests to the most fascinating destinations in over 60 countries and every continent. 

Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours has more than 38 years of experience creating unforgettable, award-winning river and ocean cruises and handcrafted land journeys. 

Since 2008, we have set the benchmark in truly all-inclusive, luxury five-star river cruises in Europe and South East Asia. In 2019, we introduced Scenic Eclipse, The World’s First Discovery Yacht™, a 228-guest ultra-luxury ship, and our second yacht, Scenic Eclipse II, in April 2023, taking guests to all four corners of the globe.
Today, our handcrafted and luxury land journeys take guests to Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Africa, Japan, Korea, Europe, Egypt and the Middle East.
