Trip Changes

Our itineraries are an approximation of our trips. Trek Travel strives to offer each and every guest a vacation of a lifetime on every trip. At times routes, hotels, activities, etc. listed here may change at the discretion of the trip designer or guides to improve the trip experience.

  • Rider Type | 2
  • Average Daily Mileage | 40
  • Terrain | Hilly

On all of our vacations, Trek Travel strives to find quiet, paved secondary roads or bike paths to experience a region; busy roads are avoided as much as possible. Prague to Vienna is best suited for our Type 2 Riders. Our Trek Travel guides can also easily accommodate Type 1 Riders, who seek less mileage or fewer uphills, with a boost in the van. Those who wish to ride every mile but are concerned about their physical ability may want to try our electric bike option–you still get a workout but can climb alongside even the strongest rider. Type 3 Riders will enjoy the extra mileage the avid route options offer. The terrain is gentle rolling hills and smaller roads with very light traffic the first three days of our trip. Upon reaching the Danube River, the routes are on beautiful (and flat) bicycle paths.

Expect moderate and sometimes hot temperatures in the 70s-90s, and moderate humidity. Rain and thunderstorms are possible at any time and can be substantial. Please pack appropriate rain gear.
