This is the perfect way to enjoy an active yet relaxing experience in Vienna. It is new, innovative and brought to you by Vienna's best tour company, Venture Vienna, specialising in outdoor activities and kayaking tours. We crafted this, and all of our other tours, because we want visitors to experience something truly unique, not just the well-trodden and sometimes over-crowded museums, churches and art galleries. This is your private guided experience so you're in charge, you can spend more time ashore or more time paddling, it is completely up to you. Rest assured, though, that you're in safe hands with our qualified lifeguard/guide by your side throughout. Whether you choose the morning, afternoon or evening paddle, there is simply no better way to escape summer in the city than by joining us out on the water.
ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Alte DonauWe'll take a gentle paddle starting from UNO City, otherwise known as the United Nations, and we'll join the famous Old Danube, where those in the know relax during the hot Viennese summers. The Alte Donau (as it is known in German) has a real villagey feel to it, and aside from some beautifully designed contemporary skyscrapers, you wouldn't realise you're still in a city. The water is surrounded by quaint, multi-coloured lakeshore huts and houses, as well as plentiful pontoons to paddle up to for a swim and a rest. If you choose an evening tour you may even be lucky enough to spot one of the nocturnal beavers that call this place home! This is your tour, so we can go as fast or as slow as you like. We will have some points of interest at hand, but if you'd prefer to just do your own thing with your guide acting as a mere lifesaver, then rest assured you can do that too.Duration: 3 hoursStop At: Danube Tower, ViennaAfter the tour, and as an optional extra, you may choose to visit the Danube Tower observation deck. This provides magnificent views over Vienna and beyond - on a clear day all the way to the Alps! If you choose an evening kayaking tour, then tower entry will provide you with panoramic views over Vienna at dusk, so you'll get to the see the city both during the day and lit up at night.Duration: 2 hours
