Bike and Barge Tours in Austria

Bike and Barge Toursbicycle path along the Danube River in Austria

From active travel tours in England, we will move on to bike & barge tours in Austria, after a brief explanation of bike & barge tours. If you’re not familiar with this type of tour, it may just be the perfect European vacation option for bicycle touring. Imagine being able to ride your bike from point A to point B in Europe and having your hotel follow you along the way. That’s essentially what you get with a bike &  barge tour. And let me emphasize the word “hotel.” If you imagine a barge as a dirty, flat, working vessel that plies the waters of a dank canal, then it’s time for a new mindset. Modern barges, like hotels, come in many shapes & sizes. And you can book anything from a budget tour to a luxury vacation on a barge. You will be served delicious meals each day and sleep in a comfortable private room each night. During they day, you can bicycle to your heart’s content knowing that at the end of the road or trail, your floating hotel will be awaiting you with all the comforts of home.
