Rowing The WorldTM

Rowing The WorldTM offers a premium choice of rowing vacations worldwide which combine the best of rowing with the best of travel. Our rowing holidays offer superb sculling and sweeping in spectacular locations.  Enjoy rowing trips in Europe, North America, Central America, Africa and other exotic locations, such as the Maldives. We are adding more destinations and expanding the style and type of rowing tours – sign up for the newsletter to get the latest updates. Join a trip to connect with international rowers. Or allow us to create a private, customized trip for your club or alumni – contact us for details.

The Rowing ConciergeTM

The Rowing Concierge™ facilitates opportunities for a row when you are already travelling, whether for business or leisure. This could mean arranging a workout with a crew when you are in a city for business, or organizing a row for the pure pleasure of being on the water in a new and interesting location. We have already built a substantial database of both rowers and clubs, and will soon provide more information on how to participate in The Rowing Concierge™ network, either as a rower or a club. Sign up for the newsletter to receive updates. If you have questions or ideas for us, please contact us.
