Short Description

A journey between the great capitals of Vienna and Prague is a trip back in time. In Austria, we ride the UNESCO-protected Wachau Valley, where wine has been cultivated for some 1,000 years. We follow the Danube through vineyards and villages, appreciate Baroque architecture and gape at medieval ruins. Crossing into the Czech Republic, in Bohemia we pedal through the breadbasket of the country, past castles and churches, lush forests and winding rivers. Cesky Krumlov is a fairytale town, its red roofs and spires soaring above the Vltava River. Arriving in renascent Prague by week’s end, we celebrate the adventure in style.

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.

Itinerary

Day 1: Meet your bikes in the picturesque Waldviertal region for a ride, stopping to enjoy a falconry display and lunch (including wiener schnitzel, of course) at Rosenburg Castle. Later bike into the thousand-year old riverside towns of the Kamptal wine region.

Day 2: Ride along the Danube’s banks to the town of Melk, home of the impressive, baroque Melk Monastery. For dinner tonight we’ll enjoy a catered event in a winery, with (naturally) an expert-led wine tasting to precede the meal.

Day 3: This morning we drive to the Czech Republic, where we’ll pedal together into Cesky Krumlov — with its perfectly preserved houses huddling around a curve in the serene Vltava River, you would swear it’s the 14th century come to life!

Day 4: Head out for a ride through the quiet landscapes of central Bohemia and spend the afternoon touring the outstanding Krumlov Castle. Explore the medieval streets on your own before dinner at a restaurant of your choice.

Day 5: This morning follow quiet roads from Cesky Krumlov to nearby UNESCO World Heritage site, Holasovice. After lunch head north toward Prague to enjoy a short walking tour before retiring to our final night dinner venue.

Day 6: After breakfast together in the hotel, our B&R adventure ends. We highly recommend you stay on for at least another day in Prague to enjoy its sights. Check out our Insider’s Guide to Prague for an in-depth look at some of its most famous features.

If you've not taken a trip with Butterfield & Robinson as your guides, you must! My husband and I love to travel and are pretty resourceful at finding great hotels and restaurants on our own. However, we just completed our third trip with B&R and are always so impressed and awed at the quality of accommodations, education, and experiences we would not of had on our own.We can't wait and are already planning for the next trip!

Just returned from our first B&R trip, a walking tour to Machu Picchu. Our guides, Stephanie and Peter were outstanding. Each day we were surprised with amazing experiences, 5 star accommodations and exceptional food. Our expectations were far surpassed. It is hard to put into words the moment we entered the Sun Gate and first looked down on Machu Picchu. I will only say you will never forget that moment. Thank you, thank you B&R!!!

Butterfield and Robinson has changed our lives. The combination of hiking, or biking, or cruise/biking at a slowed-down pace, with the help of their excellent guides, in foreign locations, makes for a relaxed, pleasurable travel experience. We have now travelled ten times with them, and we plan to do more. Their electric bikes (optional) extend our opportunity to travel with them into happy old age. Terry Patrick

This was our first trip with B and R, but it will not be our last. Our Amalfi Coast walking trip was so amazing from start to finish. Our guides (Courtney and Lisa) took such great care to make all of us so comfortable and feel safe and secure. The food, the five star hotels, the sights, sounds, and surprises along the way will leave lasting memories and bring smiles to our faces when we think of our Italian adventure.

Accomodations

Hotel Kirchenwirt, Weissenkirchen

Run with care by not one but two Austrian families, the Wildeis’ and Köcks. The four-star Kirchenwirt’s rooms are airy and comfortable, and its location, tucked in the streets of a charming riverside town along the Danube bike path, is ideal.

Hotel Ruze, Cesky Krumlov

The Hotel Ruze is the best hotel in Ceský Krumlov. Constructed as a 16thC Jesuit Monastery in the Renaissance style, it is now a comfortable (though not luxury) hotel with a beautiful view of the village, the river and surrounding hills. Our favourite place to enjoy this vista is from the restaurant terrace—with a glass of local pivo (beer) of course!

Hotel Hoffmeister, Prague

We are the only active travel company to stay at this hotel, one of Prague’s finest addresses. Mere minutes from Stari Grad (Old Town), the five-star Hoffmeister boasts two topnotch restaurants and a spa/wellness centre that is one of the best in the city.

Additional Information:

Activity Level

Recreational

The riding in Austria offers much variety in landscape and is almost completely downhill or flat along the Danube river banks. In the Czech region of Bohemia, the landscape becomes more rolling, though the frequent hills are never very long nor steep. Long options are also available.

Gear

The Bikes

You can't enjoy a great biking trip without a really great bike. On this trip you'll be riding a customized hybrid or a racing bike with drop bars. We also equip you with handlebar bag, helmet and water bottle.
