- Enjoy meandering rides along the Danube
- Cycle through three countries in one day
- Visit Vienna and Budapest
This is a classic ride through the beautiful and peaceful scenery that links these two historic cities. Our journey starts in Vienna, which requires little introduction, with its abundance of famous sites, entertainment and culture. The River Danube provides the spine of our ride as we meander back and forth from the river bank through woodland, farmland, avenues of walnut trees, wide flat landscapes and shady hills, towards the Danube Bend at Esztergom. The end point for the trip is the beautiful city of Budapest with time to soak up the wonderful atmosphere and enjoy the stunning architecture.
What makes this trip responsible?
As a self-guided trip you will be pedalling under your own steam and at your own pace. You will not be part of a group so the impact of your visit on the landscape and communities you pass will be absolutely minimal. Our local operator works with local suppliers and hoteliers to ensure that we support the communities we visit, maximising the benefit to them and also our enjoyment of the region. We will stay in characterful, locally run hotels and the route notes will often give you hints and tips of local restaurants you can try, giving you a taste of the local cuisine while helping to support these establishments. Moreover, we encourage you to journey by train to minimise your carbon footprint.
