The River Danube
The River Danube cycle tour is aimed at any recreational cyclist looking for an alternative to a River Danube boat cruise. The route follows the rivers course with plenty peaceful spots to stop. The terrain is mostly flat with occasional hills so is leg friendly. Enjoy the luxury of a fully supported cycle tour complete with riding guide, luggage transfer and picnic or packed lunches.
While the cycling will be relaxed and easy, importantly it will be on dedicated cycle paths so we are away from traffic. First of all, by joining our ‘Road to Vienna’ cycle tour in Nuremburg, we will first head to Regensburg. Then from here, the EuroVelo 6 will take us to our destination in Vienna; passing through Deggendorf, Passau, Linz, Persenbeug and Krems an der Donau. Expect to see picturesque towns and villages, birdlife, lush forests, towering escarpments, romantic castles, tourists ships, working boats and the Danube in all her glory.
Included in the price: (based on two people sharing) all accommodation, breakfast and a picnic or packed lunch each day. Your luggage will be transferred in our support van each day and we will be on hand to deal with any minor mechanical issues. If it isn’t possible to fix it on the trail, we will then get your bike to a local repair shop as soon as possible. In the meantime, you are welcome to ride our spare bike.
