Österreich Slowenien Italien Ungarn
Schwelge in der spektakulären Kulisse Sloweniens, erkunde die atmosphärischen Straßen von Salzburg, entdecke in einer einzigen Woche große Highlights und versteckte Juwelen.
Kulturfans, die etwas abseits der ausgetretenen Wege suchen, sollten einen Blick auf diesen kurzen Trip durch einige einzigartige Teile Westeuropas werfen. Auf dem Weg nach Budapest reisen wir durch Slowenien, berühmt für seine umwerfende Landschaft und sein Outdoor-Angebot. Dann geht es weiter nach Salzburg in Österreich, Heimat von Mozart und „The Sound of Music“, bevor wir Wien und Budapest erkunden, zwei Städte, in denen modernes Großstadtleben auf altertümlichen Charme trifft. Jetzt wo wir Italien mit Slowenien und Österreich mit Budapest verbunden haben, gibt es keinen Grund, warum du eine dieser epischen Erfahrungen verpassen solltest.
Ankunft zu jeder Zeit möglich.
Reise mit dem Zug nach Slowenien. Zwischenstopp in der Hauptstadt Ljubljana, bevor es weitergeht nach Bled, einer Stadt am Seeufer. Mach einen von deinem CEO geführten Orientierungs-Spaziergang, bevor du die Stadt auf eigene Faust näher erkundest. Du kannst die Burg besuchen oder am See spazieren gehen.
Unternimm einen Tagesausflug nach Bohinj, ein weites Tal in den Julischen Alpen. Diese atemberaubende Region ist bekannt für Outdoor-Aktivitäten wie Wandern, Radfahren oder Kanu fahren. Verbringe den Tag damit, das meiste aus dieser wunderschönen Region herauszuholen.
Nimm den Zug nach Salzburg, eine charmante Stadt an der österreichisch-deutschen Grenze. Kurzer Orientierungs-Spaziergang bei der Ankunft, bevor du das meiste aus einem Nachmittag zur freien Verfügung machst. Du kannst die Salzbergwerke besuchen, nach denen die Stadt benannt wurde, oder die Altstadt, ein UNESCO-Welterbe, mit ihren unzähligen Fußgängerzonen. Als Geburtsstätte Mozarts hat Salzburg eine Menge zu bieten.
Genieße einen Vormittag zur freien Verfügung, um die Stadt ein wenig mehr zu erkunden. Optional kannst du auch die Sound of Music Tour machen, die dir die berühmtesten Orte mit Bezug zum Film zeigt – ein toller Weg, um Salzburg besser kennenzulernen. Reise am Nachmittag mit dem Zug nach Wien. Mach einen kurzen Orientierungs-Spaziergang, bevor du ein optionales Abendessen in der „Stadt des Walzers“ genießen kannst.
Genieße einen Nachmittag zur freien Verfügung und entdecke diese pulsierende Hauptstadt. Du kannst die berühmte Wiener Staatsoper besichtigen, dir Kunst im Belvedere ansehen oder typische Wiener Spezialitäten wie Schnitzel, Apfelstrudel oder Sachertorte schmecken lassen. Nimm dir Zeit, um einen Kaffee in einem der einzigartigen Wiener Kaffeehäuser zu genießen.
Fahre mit dem Zug nach Budapest, der „Perle der Donau“. Die durch die Donau in Buda und Pest geteilte Stadt hat sich mit dem Burgpalast und den Thermalbädern im türkischen Stil ihren östlichen Charme erhalten. Nach einem kurzen Orientierungs-Spaziergang kannst du einige Sehenswürdigkeiten zu Fuß besuchen oder, falls genug Zeit ist, eine Stadttour mit dem Fahrrad machen.
Abreise zu jeder Zeit möglich.
Schwelge in der spektakulären Kulisse Sloweniens, erkunde die atmosphärischen Straßen von Salzburg, entdecke in einer einzigen Woche große Highlights und versteckte Juwelen.
1. YOUR CEO It is important to note that in Europe, all guiding is based around local guides all of whom are licensed to work only in a particular city. As such, our leaders are able to provide orientation walks which will show you the layout of each town and city as well as the location of local services such as post offices and laundromats, but are unable to legally share historical facts and figures in public places. 2. LUGGAGE In Europe it is very rare to find elevators in train stations, hotels or other public places. We use public transport on this trip, which means you will need to carry your luggage from platform to platform, in and out of trains and buses etc. and also possibly up several flights of stairs. You will also need to be able to stow your luggage safely on trains and buses. It is therefore essential that you pack light and bring luggage which is compact and lightweight, and which you can easily transport. The carrying of your luggage remains your responsibility at all times. We highly recommend travelling with a backpack or duffel bag over any wheeled luggage options. 3. COMBO Please note that this tour combines with other G Adventures tours. As such, the staff and/or some travel companions on your tour may have previously been traveling together with G Adventures, prior to Day 1 of your tour. Likewise, some staff and travel companions may be continuing together on another G Adventures tour, after your trip concludes.
This G Adventures group trip is accompanied by one of our group leaders. The aim of the group leader is to take the hassle out of your travels and to help you have the best trip possible. They will provide information on the places you are travelling through, offer suggestions for things to do and see, recommend great local eating venues and introduce you to our local friends. While not being guides in the traditional sense you can expect them to have a broad general knowledge of the countries visited on the trip, including historical, cultural, religious and social aspects.
Eating is a big part of traveling. Travelling with G Adventures you experience the vast array of wonderful food that is available out in the world. Generally meals are not included in the trip price when there is a choice of eating options, to give you the maximum flexibility in deciding where, what and with whom to eat. It also gives you more budgeting flexibility, though generally food is cheap. Our groups tend to eat together to enable you to taste a larger variety of dishes and enjoy each other's company. There is no obligation to do this though. Your CEO will be able to suggest favourite restaurants during your trip. The above information applies to G Adventures group trips. For Independent trips please check the itinerary for details of meals included. For all trips please refer to the meals included and budget information for included meals and meal budgets.
Intercity transport on this trip will mostly be by train and occasionally by local bus. The bus and train systems in Italy are generally good, with seat reservations and toilet/snack facilities on longer journeys. Keeping to schedules is not always a priority with public transit in certain regions, so pack in your MP3 player, a good book and some Italian phrases, and kick-back and enjoy the views with the locals. Please note that you MUST be comfortable carrying your own luggage as there will be a lot of up and down stairs on this trip due to the nature of station layouts (very few are equipped with escalators or elevators). Between public transport and hotels you may be required to carry your luggage short distances (up to 15mins walk), in larger cities you may travel by metro or city bus, and occasionally the group will take taxis to and from hotels.
It is important to note that accommodation in Europe tend to be quite different to other areas of the world you may have travelled in. Buildings and rooms are generally old and may not have been renovated or maintained to the highest standard. Downtown hotels in Europe were not built to be hotels but rich owners houses, which have been changed into hotels. Therefore unusual room sizes are common as large rooms have been partitioned in the past, resulting in rather "thin" walls. Reception areas, rooms and bathrooms tend to be very small as they were often added into an existing room, and may have a hand nozzle rather than a conventional shower head. On this trip you can expect to stay in small family-run hotels or pensions (with the exception of the start and finish hotels, which are often larger city hotels), which will vary a little in standard and facilities: some may not have elevators, air-conditioning or English-speaking staff, but most importantly all are locally-run, with some traditional character, and in excellent central locations to give you maximum time for exploring the sights. You can expect to find clean, safe, simple accommodation in convenient locations. Staff can occasionally demonstrate less than perfect customer service. As accommodation is in short supply, especially during the summer months, hotels can charge a premium and there is sometimes little motivation to improve facilities

Upon arrival to the city on day 1 (or earlier if you have booked pre-accommodation with us), please make your way to the joining hotel (note that check-in time will be in the afternoon). Once you arrive at the hotel, look for a note or bulletin board in the reception with a note from your CEO.

You will be on the move a lot, so our advice is to pack as lightly as possible. We highly recommend using a backpack or light sports bag, whichever you find easiest to carry, plus a small daypack.

Contact your local embassy or consulate for the most up-to-date visa requirements, or see your travel agent. It is your responsibility to have the correct travel documentation. While we provide the following information in good faith, it is vital that you check yourself and understand that you are fully responsible for your own visa requirements. All visitors to the EU (European Union) and EEC (European Economic Community) countries require a valid passport (with a minimum 6 months validity). USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand passport holders do not need a visa to visit the Schengen area (see below), however they may not stay longer than three months in any 6-month period. For other nationalities, travelling in Europe has been simplified with the introduction of the Schengen visa. As a visitor to the Schengen area (Austria, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Greece, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Portugal, Finland, Italy, Spain, France, Luxembourg, Sweden, Czech Republic, Hungary, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia and Switzerland) you will enjoy the many advantages of this unified visa system. Generally speaking with a Schengen visa, you may enter one Schengen country and travel freely throughout the Schengen region during the validity of your visa. There are limited border controls at Schengen borders, if any at all. Please note that the UK and Ireland are NOT part of the Schengen agreement. A Schengen visa is applied for at the Embassy or Consulate of the Schengen country in which you will be spending the most nights on your trip to the Schengen space. If you are only visiting one country on your trip then you apply for your visa at the Consulate of this Schengen country.
Italy, Slovenia and Austria are all in the Eurozone and the unit of the currency is the Euro. Hungary uses the Forint (HUF). Credit cards and debit cards are very useful for cash advances but you must remember to bring your PIN number (be aware that many ATM machines only accept 4-digit PINs). Both Cirrus and Plus system cards are the most widely accepted debit cards. Visa cards are the most widely accepted credit cards. While ATMs are commonly available, there are no guarantees that your credit or debit cards will actually work in Italy - check with your bank. You should be aware when purchasing products or services on a credit card, that a fee usually applies. Do not rely on credit or debit cards as your only source of money. A combination of Euros, traveller’s cheques and cards is best. Avoid relying on traveller's cheques alone as these are less and less readily cashed as clients use them very little. Always take more rather than less, as you don't want to spoil the trip by constantly feeling short of funds. As currency exchange rates can fluctuate often we ask that you refer to the following website for daily exchange rates: www.xe.com
It is customary in Europe to leave a small tip for service providers, such as waiters, if you are pleased with the service (€1-2 for snacks or 10% of a meal bill). Tipping is an expected - though not compulsory - component of your tour program and an expression of satisfaction with the persons who have assisted you on your tour. Although it may not be customary to you, it is of considerable significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels. Also at the end of each trip if you felt your G Adventures CEO did an outstanding job, tipping is appreciated. The amount is entirely a personal preference, however as a guideline €20-25 per person, per week can be used.

Please note inoculations may be required for the country visited. It is your responsibility to consult with your travel doctor for up to date medical travel information well before departure. You should consult your doctor for up-to-date medical travel information well before departure. We recommend that you carry a First Aid kit and hand sanitizers / antibacterial wipes as well as any personal medical requirements. Please be aware that quite often we are in remote areas and away from medical facilities, and for legal reasons our leaders are prohibited from administering any type of drug including headache tablets, antibiotics, etc. When selecting your trip please carefully read the brochure and itinerary and assess your ability to cope with our style of travel. Please refer to the Physical and Culture Shock ratings for trip specific information. G Adventures reserves the right to exclude any traveller from all or part of a trip without refund if in the reasonable opinion of our CEO they are unable to complete the itinerary without undue risk to themselves and/or the rest of the group.
Always keep an eye on your belongings especially in major cities, bus and train terminals. Italian attractions can be particularly bad for pickpockets, especially the Vatican.
In Italy, shoulders should be covered while visiting churches and cathedrals. Ask your CEO for more specific advice.
Erlebnis- und Abenteuerreisen sind mehr als nur ein Urlaub. Sie sind eine Chance, deine Welt besser kennenzulernen, indem du den Menschen, Orten und Dingen, die sie so besonders machen, wirklich nahekommst ohne auf die Flexibilität einer selbst organisierten Reise zu verzichten. Dies ist dein Planet. Komm und lerne ihn kennen!
G Adventures wurde bereits 1990 von Bruce Poon Tip gegründet. Als Backpacker mit Herz & Seele, waren sein einziges Startkapital zwei Kreditkarten und das brennende Verlangen, eine authentische, nachhaltige Reiseerfahrung anzubieten, wie die Welt sie noch nicht gesehen hatte. Indem er abenteuerlustigen Individualreisenden eine Alternative zu den üblichen Touristenhotels, Kreuzfahrten und Busreisen anbot, veränderte er nicht nur die Art, wie Menschen ihren Urlaub betrachten, sondern auch das Angesicht des Reisens für immer. Das einzige, was sich in den letzten 25 Jahren nicht verändert hat, ist der tief verwurzelte Glaube an deren Grundwerte, die das Leben und G Adventure bis heute bestimmen.
Wir Vamadu-Gründer möchten genau diese Art von nachhaltigem, unabhängigem Tourismus für Individualreisende & Backpacker fördern und freuen uns, dass G Adventures somit selbst Teil der Vamadu Story wird!
