Germany: Self-Guided Holidays and Small Group Walking, Cycling and Barge Based Adventures

Whether choosing to cycle along the Danube cycle path or enjoying a walk within the Bavarian Alps, Germany offers active travellers with many exciting adventure holiday options.

Barge and bike holidays are a comfortable way to experience the many hidden pockets along Germany's rivers. The mighty Danube River originates in Germany and there is no better way to experience the European Union's longest river than on a barge and biking holiday down the Danube.  Other German bike and barge holiday options are also available along the Moselle River as well as through the Rhine Valley along the castle studded Neckar River.

Germany's alpine regions offer splendid guided and self-guided walking opportunities. On the border with Austria, both the Bavarian Alps and the Tyrol range are home to pristine landscapes as well as some of Europe's best maintained networks of walking trails. These fragile alpine ecosystems are home to many wildflowers – orchids, cyclamen, gentians, pulsatilla, alpine roses, edelweiss and buttercups. We urge our travellers to stick to the paths to avoid trading on these delicate plants.

Utracks Europe offers a range of guided and self-guided tours to help you cycle, walk, hike, boat and barge your way through Germany on a small group adventure holiday.
