A fascinating and highly enjoyable cycling holiday between two of Europe’s most beautiful and historic cities. Enjoy a night in delightful Prague before transferring south to Cesky Krumlov to ride through the beautiful and unspoilt countryside of Southern Bohemia and Moravia to Austria’s elegant capital city.
Prague will enchant you with its wonderful architecture, bustling, cobbled streets, cathedrals and fascinating history. After a night in the Czech capital you’ll be driven south to another gem, Cesky Krumlov – one of Europe’s best-preserved old towns – from where your cycling holiday begins.
Cesky Krumlov – one of Europe’s best-preserved old towns
The Czech Republic has an excellent network of cycle routes and this tour makes use of some of the best ones, leading you through wonderful, rolling countryside, to charming old towns such as Telc, Znojmo and Mikulov. South Moravian wines really are world class but they don’t produce enough for export so don’t miss the opportunity to sample the product as you are travelling through – the beer’s pretty good too!
Finally you cross into Austria, spending the last night of the tour in elegant Vienna on the banks of the mighty Danube River.
This varied route, combines quiet lanes, paved cycle paths and a few short off-road sections. The terrain is undulating so some climbing is to be expected but nothing too challenging. You’ll be averaging around 55 km per day on this tour.
