Butterfield & Robinson—the world’s premier active travel company—partners with Uniworld for an exclusive 2016 departure along the Danube River.

Butterfield & Robinson’s new ship-based trip Danube River Cruise Biking takes travellers through four countries and three world capitals, with a host of medieval strongholds, modern art museums, towering castle ruins and gorgeous wine country along the way.

On this 8-day biking trip aboard Uniworld’s elegant River Beatrice – among the finest ships in its class – Butterfield & Robinson takes the active river experience to its highest notch on a journey along the Danube from Passau, Germany, to Budapest.

“The longships of European waterways have reached a stage of unprecedented on-board comfort, with fine dining, and impeccable service,” says Director of Published Planning Chris Mark. “As for the destination, Middle Europe is enjoying an extremely well deserved renaissance, owing to its attractive landscapes, friendly residents, and rich history—and the stately Danube is its main artery, both literally and figuratively.”

Starting in Munich and ending in Budapest, Danube River Cruise Biking will take travellers along mostly gentle riverside riding on Europe’s longest dedicated bike path, stopping to explore Melk Monastery, the Wachau wine valley, the historic centre of Vienna, and Slovakia’s charming Bratislava along the way.

Crafted from the finest ingredients (exceptional lodgings, incomparable access, stellar wines and food, experienced guides and more than a few secrets), B&R trips combine adventure with unparalleled cultural immersion in the world’s greatest destinations.
