You can rely on us to select accommodation of character and to provide accurate route notes to guide you there, so relax and enjoy…
Holidaying in Austria
If you would like to plan a walking, cycling or touring holiday in Austria for 2021, we are accepting bookings for next year as normal, with the added bonus that prices remain unchanged from 2020. In the hope that the current travel restrictions will be eased before the end of the 2021 winter season, we are also accepting bookings for snow holidays, provided that you are booking at least 6 weeks ahead.
If you like a dramatic backdrop while you’re cycling, Austria is an ideal choice. Because the emphasis of an Inntravel cycling holiday in Austria is on relaxed discovery, we’ve also made sure there is plenty of cultural interest and that the cycling is easy, alongside rivers and lakes. As well as offering Danube cycling holidays, we also offer cycling holidays in Austria’s lake district near Salzburg.
To give you a good idea of how we can tailor our trips to your individual requirements, take a look at the section of the website specifically devoted to travellers from outside the UK.
Alternatively, if you’d prefer to get the low-down on Inntravel holidays from someone who has first-hand experience, you can email Phil Wise. Based in California, Phil has taken many trips with us over the years, and will be happy to give you general information about travelling to Europe and the overall Inntravel holiday experience from an American perspective.
How our cycling holidays in Austria are graded
To be sure of choosing the cycling holiday in Austria that is right for you, you can see how we grade them below. If you think you might need a little bit of help on uphill sections or longer days, you could hire an electric bike (e-bike) to make things easier. (Our grading system assumes you are using a ‘regular’ bike.)
Easy cycling for all with shorter days mainly on the flat, but some gentle ascents.
Easy-to-moderate cycling featuring undulating routes with more frequent short ascents, and a mix of shorter and longer days.
Moderate cycling with some longer, steady uphill sections, and longer days.
Fairly strenuous cycling featuring longer days with some sustained climbs.
Why choose Inntravel for your cycling holiday in Austria
Like all our holidays, our cycling holidays in Austria revolve around three key ingredients: unspoiled scenery; hand-picked accommodation of character where you’ll receive a warm welcome; and delicious regional cuisine.
Route notes you can trust
We pride ourselves on providing accurate, comprehensive route guides, which we update constantly so that you can have complete confidence in them. While steering you from A to B, they’ll fill you in about places of interest and local culture, so that you enjoy the richest possible holiday experience – all at your own pace.
Freedom to choose
Holidaying independently, not in a group, means you can stay in intimate hotels, and decide which places to visit each day. What’s more, there’s no set start date, no set duration (feel free to add extra nights), no set travel arrangements – we’ll happily book a bespoke travel package for you, either by air, by rail or by ferry.
We’ve been offering holidays since 1984 and have built up a wealth of experience. Whenever you contact us, you’ll deal with friendly experts who share a passion for travel and who have stayed in our featured hotels and cycled our routes. They’ll be delighted to answer your queries and help you plan your perfect holiday.
