Short Description

Join us on this two-wheel, small group adventure through the Danish Isles and the land of the Vikings. Our expert guides invite you to discover why Denmark is the perfect destination for a cycling vacation replete with luxury accommodations, the best in regional fare and our signature Austin touch of inspired, thoughtful service. From thatch-roofed farmhouses to royal palaces, get a sense of Danish tradition and national pride in one of the friendliest countries in the world. Visit the homes and memorials of some of history’s favorite characters, from Karen Blixen to Hamlet, and sip coffee in an idyllic village café before pedaling your way through Denmark’s pastoral countryside and into the charming fold of the next seaside town. Breathe deep of the fresh, salt-kissed air and get excited that very few hills loom ahead; Denmark’s highest point is, after all, less than 600-feet above the sea. This all-inclusive, custom trip guarantees to bring joy and delight!

Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.

I found much to enjoy on a trip this summer in terms of the activities, however, we had several couples who dominated the trip in an unfriendly way. These couples knew each other and planned their trip together. What surprised me was that the guides made no effort to defuse this. At the end of the trip, the lead guide said the guides failed to present at least half of their commentary due to the loudness of the couples. (The couples also seemed to broadcast sexist comments almost continuously.) I've seen other companies handle group dynamics in a more proactive way.

My family just finished the Arizona trip with Katie and Emily as our guides. The trip was well-planned, with a great mix of seeing great places and having active adventures (kayaks on Salt River, biking through scenic trails and the painted desert and our favorite part-hiking and biking in the Grand Canyon.) The accommodations in each place were optimal, meals were great and Katie and Emily were the best. They were always prepared, efficient, friendly, and highly-skilled at everything from guiding us on hikes, bike rides and river floats to transporting us and our stuff, to pampering us with treats--even fresh carved fruit or chocolates produced at the bottom of a canyon trail.

Austin was recommended to me by a friend. I told her I wanted a trip if a life time. Never did I imagine the level of expertise we would receive from our guides. Nor was I really told about the Wows. Our guides, our group have become close friends. I went on this vacation thinking it would be my one and only "trip of a life time". Now I am rethinking that as our group wants to travel together again with Austin. The trick will be to get Heather, Sheri, and Greg to leave the Alaska tour and guide us on our next adventure in 2019

Just completed a wonderful Havasupai trip. It was the first of its kind and one never would have guessed it. Kasey was wonderful, as were those she teamed up with from AOA for this particular trip. I'd recommend an Austin Adventure to anyone!

Took a family vacation to Yellowstone last month with Austin Adventures and had the most amazing time! Kasey and Zach were awesome guides who really went above and beyond to assure my family enjoyed every minute as well as maximized our potential to experience as much as possible in the 4 days we were there; I wish we could have stayed longer! We left Yellowstone feeling that this was our best family vacation ever! Thank you Zach, Kasey, and Austin Adventures! Have a great summer.

Just got back from the Yellowstone/Tetons trip, our first with Austin Adventures, but definitely not our last. Our guides Carrie and James set the perfect tone and kept our spirits up despite some rainy days. I highly recommend this tour company and look forward to more adventures with them!
