Two gentle, unescorted cycle tours along the River Danube, suitable for all levels of fitness with comfortable bikes and a flexible itinerary including the freedom to choose your arrival day.

Wending its way alongside pretty villages and the picturesque vineyards, the beautiful and tranquil Danube used to be an important medieval trade route and the long-standing frontier of the Roman Empire.

The region is known for its cultural treasures and scenic attractions and the river banks are dotted with many impressive castles and fortresses. Well sign-posted cycle tracks on both banks allow you to enjoy gentle cycling on a flat path between the cities of Passau and Vienna, as well as Vienna and Budapest.

With plenty of time to explore the attractions along the way, cycle distances may be shortened with optional boat/train journeys. En route, enjoy comfortable hotels to relax in each evening before setting off on a new adventure the following day whilst your luggage is transferred to your next hotel. This tour is available from May to September and you can choose the arrival day that suits you as well as extend your stay in Vienna and Budapest.
