Where fairy tales come to life
6 Days / 5 Nights
Vienna to Prague
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 entertain the kids with fun amid the 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 fairy tale 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.
*The activities on our Vienna to Prague Family Biking trip are recommended for children age 12 years and older.
