Wachau Valley Kayak & Wine Tour

Home to rolling hills, ancient castles, picture postcard villages and steeply terraced vineyards, the Wachau also produces some of Austria's finest wines. Your private kayaking excursion, with our specialist kayak instructor and Austrian wine expert, showcases this amazing natural region like no other...

We meet at the main entrance of Vienna’s ‘Westbahnhof’ railway station, before a one hour train journey to Melk at the western edge of the Wachau. Once in the valley, we'll prepare the kayaks, provide a full safety briefing and give paddling instructions, prior to launch.


The western side of the Wachau is too cool for wine production, so the hills are covered in carpets of trees with castles and palaces sitting proudly atop many of the valley’s highest peaks. You’ll be in awe of the valley’s natural beauty from your privelged position, right at the heart of it on the Danube. We’ll also stop for a break by the river’s edge, where the shore transforms itself into a small natural beach.


After continuing downstream for a few more kilometres, we’ll take another break, this time for lunch in a small village (lunch not included), before entering the eastern side of the Wachau - where its wine is produced and where we’ll visit a local winery for a tasting.

James was very reactive on Instagram when we wanted to book a trip, he is a GREAT guide. We had so much fun. He has so many tips to do in Vienna. He’s both a guide and a photographer on the water and knows his way around the best spots on the old Danube. Would 100% recommend and book again when we’re back in town! Don’t miss out on the fun!
