Expanding its Storyteller Series cruise offering hosted by celebrity creatives, Avalon Waterways will add a new eight-day Active & Discovery on the Rhine itinerary in 2024, helmed by actor and author Graham McTavish.

The Kiltn’ It: Facts, Fiction & Fairytale Settings on the Rhine with Graham McTavish! sees the actor (Outlander, The Witcher, House of the Dragon and Men in Kilts: A Road Trip with Sam and Graham) and author (Clanlands: Whisky, Warfare and Scottish Adventure Like No Other) host the latest Avalon Waterways Storyteller Series cruise.

Mr McTavish is also the current face of the latest Avalon Waterways ad campaign: ‘Cruising. Elevated’.

The Storyteller cruise with Graham McTavish is the second announced for 2024 along with a sold-out sailing with Diana Gabaldon, best-selling author of the Outlander series.  

Avalon Waterways President Pam Hoffee said the Storyteller Series is beyond words.

“Hosted by celebrity authors, actors, artists and musicians, Avalon’s Storyteller cruises deliver scenic ports and riveting plots from history in legendary settings with insider stories from the artistic legends of today.”

“Our new advertising – featuring Graham – has made a big splash and we couldn’t be more thrilled that Graham said ‘yes’ to hosting a cruise in October 2024, providing fans a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend a week with their favourite storyteller,” Ms Hoffee said.

Mr McTavish added: “A river tells a story, not just through its history – one of my passions – but through sharing in its flow. Joining this Avalon Active and Discovery Cruise will allow us all to share in that flowing story that we will help to write together.”

Previous Storyteller cruises have been hosted by Cheryl Strayed, Candace Bushnell, Gillian Flynn, Christopher Moore and Sister Hazel.
