Vienna - Prague Greenways, Multi-Sport

Tour Description: Self-guided

(View Guided )

This multi-activity program takes you along the entire Czech Greenway. It is designed to be flexible, allowing you to rediscover the most interesting, off-the-beaten-track places closed off for forty years behind the Iron Curtain, while giving you a maximum degree of freedom and independent choice. The program is founded on the principle of the self-guided tour, letting you enjoy yourself as the tour company takes care of the details.

The main idea is versatility:

  • You decide when and where your vacation will start
  • Each day you can travel to a different place
  • You decide how many nights to spend at a given stop
  • Each day you can choose a different means of transportation for your tour - on foot, on horseback, by bicycle, or by car, and sometimes even by canoe.

Hiking: For each day there is a different selected route (no more than 14 miles), taking you over the best parts of each Greenway area. You will be given maps, detailed trail guide and itinerary.

Cycling: If you choose to go bike riding on a given day, you will be provided with cycling maps with route highlighted, itinerary, panniers, and a bicycle to ride over a selected route of up to 36 miles.

Horseback: On a given day you may choose to look over a section of the Greenways from the saddle, maximum length of 4 hours. This is the only one of the four options that returns you to your starting point at the end of the day.

Car: You can also travel by car with our driver or a rental car. You will be taken to see the most interesting towns or points of interest, and be offered the option of a short hiking route (6 miles maximum).

Canoe: In three places along the Greenway it is possible to go by canoe. The longest route is 10 miles. The easier ones you may travel by yourself, while on the harder ones you are accompanied by a trained guide.

Schedule a day for relaxation, as the program also offers a day of rest and recreation, to give you a break from your hiking, biking, canoeing, horse riding and driving activities. One day you can spend your time in a historic spa. Another day can be set aside for arts and history. The combination is up to you. On each given day the means of travel you pick can be different, or you can choose to go for example by bicycle or on horseback the entire trip.

Each day's program, whatever the activity, is organized to give you ample time to explore the destination town of the day. Since the Prague / Vienna Greenway is about 250 miles long, you will be transferred over some sections. Longer parts, such as Vienna - Breclav, will be covered by train, while shorter sections will be covered by car.
