Does a rowing holiday sound like your idea of heaven?

What is Rowing the World?

Love to row?  Love to travel?  Why not combine the best of both?  Rowing The WorldTM is the premier company for rowing vacations.  We are intrigued by their rowing trips, which offer sculling and sweeping in spectacular locations – Ireland, England, Italy & Switzerland, California, Quebec and even the Maldives.

So what’s it all about?

Rowing The World offers a full package style of travel where rowing is one of many experiences. Some trips are point-to-point down a river – the classic rowing tour. We were interested to see that on other trips you row with different clubs in a diversity of locations, enjoying varied equipment and views.  In addition to the trips listed on the website, Rowing The World offers private tours for clubs or alumni groups.

And when you’re not on the water?

Although the rowing is the raison d’être, depending on where you are travelling, you might also enjoy wine tasting, hiking, cycling, villa and museum visits, or maybe a cooking class.  While the groups are small, you are welcome to bring your non-rowing partner – there is a full program for him or her while you are rowing.

Who to contact..

We recently spoke with Ruth Marr, President of Rowing The World. She is delighted to apply her 17 years as an adventure travel tour operator to connecting rowers who love to travel.  Sounds like fun!  Contact her directly at
