Small-Group Guided Kayak Tour of Vienna

Private Vienna Woods Wine Tour

Lower Austria is the cradle of Austrian viticulture, so we want to take you to the beautiful forests & vineyards of the Thermal Region, just south of Vienna. Home to traditionally quaint wine villages and some unique local varietals, we showcase the finest in farm-to-table Austrian wine tours. We offer two different tours, depending on the season:

In summer (Apr-Oct), we hike through forested trails and lush green vineyards, stopping en route for an open-air wine tasting and to appreciate beautifully expansive views over the Vienna basin to Hungary & Slovakia. We then continue to one of Austria's oldest wine villages for lunch & a winery visit.

In winter (Nov-Mar), instead of hiking, we focus our attention on the past, present and future of Austrian wine by first visiting one of its oldest wine-making institutions dating back to 1141. We then meet one of the region's finest vintners for a wonderfully intimate wine tasting and Q&A to showcase all that the Thermal Region has to offer.

The guide was informative, relaxed and entertaining. The kayaks were easy to control. A good way to see Vienna differently. A great way to cool down on a hot summer day. The swim was very welcome. Other rivers were out of order due to high water levels but the Old Danube is a cut off lake and was not affected.

Best way to enjoy Vienna's shapes and landscapes, while being close to the nature and feeling almost sporty. The guide is a super nice lad giving great informations about the buildings, geography, history and also some funny informations you don't expect! You can go with beers, a swimming suit, and you'll be all set to enjoy the sun and the water Big thanks for this experience I'll remember

My husband and I had a free day on the front end of our Christmas markets tour so we looked for a unique day tour. As wine lovers this tour seemed perfect and it was. James is personable and friendly. He gave us good information on the places we went, recommended delicious food for our lunch and really made the day feel as if we were hanging out with an old friend. Oh, and the wines, they were fantastic! We got to try wines we've never heard of and learn about the uniqueness of Austrian Reisling. I couldn't recommend him enough. In fact, since I'm a travel agent, I will recommend him to any and clients visiting Vienna. Oh and his kayak tour sounds amazing! Hopefully I'm in the area one summer to do it.
