From the Old World charm of Prague and the Czech Republic, our journey will include the Unesco World Heritage site of Cesky-Krumlov and idyllic countryside of southern Bohemia; in Austria, we’ll follow the Danube River, where you can choose between gentle bike paths or venture into the nearby moderate hills where vineyards tempt. Our trip finishes in Vienna, one of Europe’s most important artistic centers. The 11 day tour includes two nights in Prague, with local guided walks at the beginning of the tour and two nights in Vienna at the end of the trip, each with local expert guided walks.

This tour is the AVID version of our Prague to Vienna trip, where you’ll ride ‘door to door’. You must be fit and enjoy riding longer distances with hills.
