If you're searching for something truly different then let us take you to an undiscovered side arm of the Danube for a private kayak tour. We paddle entirely at your pace, in either single or double kayaks according to your preference, and you'll be guided throughout by a certified open-water lifeguard. You’ll experience the geography of Vienna as well as its political and diplomatic influence as we paddle past the United Nations in the emerging 'new' Vienna. We'll also admire several of the city’s other most important contemporary buildings, as well as the colourful lakeside huts which adorn the water’s edge. We could also stop at a lake shore cafe or take a swim in the clean lake waters. From May to September especially, the water is perfect for cooling off while watching the slow-paced world of the Old Danube float on by! Expect to share the water with some rowers, the odd fisherman, and the local birdlife. For the most part though, we should have it to ourselves ;-)

Stop At: Alte Donau

We'll take a gentle paddle around the famous Old Danube, where those in the know relax during the hot Viennese summers. The Alte Donau (as it is known in German) is akin to a watery village, and aside from the nearby United Nations and some beautifully designed contemporary skyscrapers, you wouldn't realise you're still in the city. In parts, the lake 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'll paddle just as fast or as slow as you like. Naturally, we'll have some points of interest at hand, but if you'd prefer to just do your own thing with your guide merely acting as your personal lifesaver should you need him, then rest assured, you can do that too!
