Full description
Discover the most beautiful section of the Wachau Valley on this full-day biking and wine tasting excursion in Austria’s most beautiful valley, voted the Best Historic Destination in the World in 2008.
Enjoy a glorious day of sipping, swirling, and casual cycling through the country’s most famous wine-making regions.

World-renown for its quality white wines, stunning villages, and breathtaking scenery, the Wachau Valley is the perfect place to enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Arrive by train and then hop on your bike to explore with your expert guide. Breathe in the fresh country air as you cycle by historic towns, charming villages, and spectacular scenery.

Stopping at local wineries, you’ll sample dry and fruity whites as well as other delicacies, like the valley’s famed apricot jams and liqueurs. During free time, explore the medieval town of Dürnstein, a well-known Wachau highlight, complete with a castle where Richard the Lionhearted was once held prisoner. Or perhaps you’d rather swim in the Danube and then enjoy lunch at the local tavern, a traditional family-run restaurant.

Amazing, breathtaking, delicious!

We absolutely loved our bike trip to wachau valley! Thomas was an excellent guide and very informative and excellent at taking care of our group! The wines were excellent and the scenery was beautiful. The only suggestion would be for the company to provide another guide to take up the back or help to keep everyone together and help with bike issues?

We had a great time on the winery biking adventure through the Wachau Valley. We went with the guide Iolo. He was very knowledgeable about the area and the different wines. We felt secure with him because he is also a bike mechanic and checked with each of us regularly to make sure everything was ok with our bikes. He was funny and energetic, but still professional, making the whole day a fun and relaxing experience. We sampled several delicious and different white wines (and one rose) throughout the tour.
