Day 1 - Arriving at Munich or Vienna Airport. We will transfer you to Passau where a welcome meal will be waiting for you on the island where the 3 rivers in the Upper Danube meet, creating a unique diffusion of colours in the water. Your hotel will be on the tip of the island.
Day 2 - After breakfast we will make our way to the smallest tributary of the river and prepare our boats. Once on the water we will make our way through the bridges and onto the Blue Danube. We will make our way downriver passing small Austro-German villages on our way. We will stop for a late lunch and possibly a swim at Obernzell. After lunch we will jump back in our boats and make our way to Jochenstein lock. Once through the lock we are 1k from our evening destination Engelhartszell, a beautiful Austrian village where you will be able to relax for the evening.
Day 3 - After a late start, allowing you to have a wander around the town and digest your breakfast we will get back on the water and continue our river "cruise". We will stop for lunch on the S bend near Schlogen. After a good lunch we will snake round the river, trapped by the thick woods. Our overnight stop will be at a gasthof on a river bend in a surprisingly untamed stretch of the Danube. Here, you will enjoy the local hospitality and a hearty meal of true Austrian fare.
Day 4 - After a good night’s sleep in the countryside we will make our way to the city of Linz. We will make our way through 2 locks and stop for lunch at another Austrian gasthof. After lunch we will make our way through the final lock at the World Championship course. After a quick stop at the course, we will complete our journey with the 10k row to Linz.
Once in your apartment, we will take you for a ‘Welcome to Linz’ dinner.
Day 5 - Day 8/10
At the Worlds you will be in self catering apartments, we will provide the evening meal along with breakfast items for at least the first few days.
We will provide a shuttle service to the Ottensheim in the morning and as racing finishes. We can also provide limited bikes if you would prefer to cycle to the course (10k).
*For the 10 Day tour you can jump in the buses and go to Salzburg or Vienna for a day trip on Tuesday or Wednesday.
On the Saturday night we will be putting on a Row Tours party at a venue in Linz, the party will be free for anyone on the Row Tours package.
