Who could say no to a winery tour riding through the vineyards of Austria tasting their finest wine? Getting to bike through the beautiful scenery of Wachau Valley along with a wine tour is the makings of a good day. Plus, Hannah (Intrepid Introvert) is ALWAYS up for a day filled with adventure and wine!
We hooked up with Vienna Explorer, and it was well worth it! They showed us an incredible day out and about.
We took a nice train ride to the outskirts of Vienna, and a quick check of the bikes for safety and got on our way. We were so excited for this as we kept seeing vineyards but had not made time to stop in and try some local wine. It was well worth the wait as we got to our first stop on the winery tour! …Our tour guide was great, we had a big group (around 16 people) biking down the street and 5 min down the road he still had half the group intact …I call that a win.
As we went along and got out of the town, the scenery just got better and better. The bike rides were through the easy to ride flat paths surrounded by vineyards, and the wineries were traditional and sometimes even local family-owned taverns.
We’re usually red wine drinkers, but the Austrian white wines were really nice. Even impressed Hannah the self proclaimed red wine girl! Her first year of university Chardonnay days are long behind her… Plus, can’t beat a delicious beer at our lunch stop in the middle of it all. Definitely a great way to get a travelers taste of the local flavor.
After a long hot day biking through the countryside, and a quick bike race to show the Aussie’s who’s top, a jump into the cold Danube river was JUST what we needed! It’s built into the tour so there’s time to not only see the famous river, but jump right in and have a refreshing cool off.
What’s your favourite thing to do when visiting a new country? Lately, I loooove doing winery tours! I’ll never say no to a glass of red 🍷😜 So when in Vienna, we took a trip out to the beautiful Wachau Valley with @viennaexplorer for a winery and bike tour of the region. A fab way to get some exercise with wine breaks 😍 If you’re a wine lover, or just love biking through vineyards- definitely check it out when in Austria 👌 . . . . . . . . . #winestagram #wachau #wachauvalley #visitaustria #europeansummer #intrepidintrovert #viennaexplorer #winerytour #austrianwine #winecountry #girlslovetravel
