Description

A journey between the great capitals of Vienna and Prague is a trip back in time. In Austria, we ride the UNESCO-protected Wachau Valley, where wine has been cultivated for some 1,000 years. We follow the Danube through vineyards and villages, appreciate Baroque architecture and entertain the kids with fun amid the medieval ruins. Crossing into the Czech Republic, in Bohemia we pedal through the breadbasket of the country, past castles and churches, lush forests and winding rivers. Cesky Krumlov is a fairy tale town, its red roofs and spires soaring above the Vltava River. Arriving in renascent Prague by week’s end, we celebrate the adventure in style.

The best way to see the world

By: SueandRoger

This is our 10th Butterfield Trip. It remains the best way to see a region. Nothing beats vigorous activity during the day and luxury at night. Bespoke trips for a large group are cost-effective and totally your own. We loved our guides Denis and Jerome this month in Loire, France. Amazing trip. With B&R you have access to private homes, private experiences, and people and places you would never meet otherwise.
