Mozart & the Matterhorn — 3 weeks
Switzerland (Zermatt), the Italian Lakes, the Salzburg Hinterland, and the Danube Valley (Austria)

On this page, you'll find...

Mozart & the Matterhorn is a trip for lovers of rarefied air.  It crosses the prettiest of the Alps in 3 countries, indulging you in the exhilaration of high altitudes.  Despite the terrain, it’s not a hard ride:  we keep to the valleys and train uphill from time to time to roll back down, hopefully on our bikes.

Gawk at glaciers in Switzerland, pilot mountain roads in Italy, overnight in Alp-top lodges in Austria; constantly cradled by stunning scenery.

Between the buttercups and the edelweiß, lowlands fans are regaled with city days in Como, Salzburg & Vienna – convivial capitals of cuisine and culture.  Finish with a 3-day ride on the blue Danube’s cycle path, Europe’s greatest long-distance bike route.
