About the Tour
Country Travel DISCOVERIES and Missouri Life Magazine invite you to join Publishers Greg & Danita Wood on a festive and immersive travel adventure as we bike through the heart of scenic Central Europe along the Danube River. Visit medieval, imperial and Cold War landmarks, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and some of the Continent’s most spectacular countryside biking routes. Start in the stately Austrian capital of Vienna, then move along the river into Slovakia's Bratislava. Later, head into the Czech Republic countryside and finish up in stunning Prague, one of Europe's best preserved cities. Bikes and gear will be provided for your comfortably paced, guided riding tours (16 to 28 miles a day), mostly on flat, paved paths. It's a perfect way to explore this wonderful region, right up close, at an easy-going active pace. A very special trip!
