Danube River

The Danube River Cycle Path was Europe’s first long distance cycle path and it’s still one of the most popular choices for leisure cyclists today. Explore the young Danube in Bavaria or enjoy the classic route between Passau and Vienna in Austria, taking in the stunning Wachau Valley along the way. You can also ride from Vienna to Budapest in Hungary or how about taking on our 14 day cycle odyssey all the way from Passau to Budapest? Our Danube cycling holidays offer a range of accommodation options from simple guesthouses to 4 star hotels. On our popular bike and boat holidays you’ll live aboard a comfortable river cruiser, disembarking somewhere new each day for leisurely riverside rides.

Easy:
Our easy cycling holidays offer short daily rides on mostly level terrain.

These rides are particularly recommended for newcomers to cycling holidays and for families.

Leisurely:
Our leisurely cycle holidays will suit those who are reasonably fit through regular exercise of one kind or another – not necessarily cycling.
