Li River (China)


14.jpg


China might be known for the Yangtze, but it's difficult not to fall under the spell of the Li (Lijiang) River, one of its tributaries. The river's breathtaking karst topography can be found between the Guangxi Province towns of Guilin and Yangshuo via boat tour, while traditional bamboo rafting can be done along the smaller and less crowded Yulong River (a tributary of the Li).

Volga River (Russia)


15.jpg



"Mother Volga" houses 11 of Russia's 20 largest cities on its banks, which explains its popularity among the cruise set. Most tour boats ply a section of the Volga just north of Moscow before traveling on to St. Petersburg via a series of interconnected waterways, taking in major cities alongside quaint riverside towns sprinkled with historic Kremlins and brightly colored onion-domed churches.

Loire (France)
13.jpg



As European road trips go, it's hard to beat a scenic drive along France's longest river. Dotted with grand chateaus steeped in history, sprawling, manicured gardens and undulating green hills stretching to the horizon, the Loire also lends nicely to cruising. But with no pesky border crossings to account for, most travelers prefer to navigate its length on four wheels, or, thanks to a proliferation of cycle ways, by bike.

Caño Cristales (Colombia)

Known as "the river that ran away from paradise," the Caño Cristales in central Colombia is often considered the most beautiful river in the world. During the summer months, when the heat helps resident algae colonies to grow and multiply, the river explodes in a multi-hued array of colors worthy of a thousand photographs.

Nile (Africa)

Recent events may have forced most travelers to put a trip to Egypt on the backburner, but fortunately the world's longest river -- which shares its resources with 10 other countries -- isn't going anywhere. From the tomb-laden Valley of the Kings to the monumental Temple of Luxor, the riverbanks of the Nile house almost all of Ancient Egypt's historical sites.

Fed by Argentina's glacial lakes, the brilliant aquamarine waters of the Rio Futaleufú cross the Andes and cascade through southeastern Chile, where adrenalin junkies converge from November to March to tackle its heart-quickening rapids by raft or kayak.
