  Vienna Events
Social Hike XL: John's Creek Canyon

The Gutenstein Alps with their iconic John's Creek Canyon are located only 1.5 hours South of Vienna. You definitely should have been there at least once. It's like visiting a mini-version of Switzerland, complete with grazing cows and snow-covered ridges afar.

Conveniently starting and ending at Vienna Main Station/Wien Hauptbahnhof, this tour comes packed with with spectacular impressions of canyon rocks, mountain meadows and idyllic forests. If quiet enough, we might even spot some free-roaming wildlife in the woods. Net hiking time through all these eye candies will be 3 hours.

Underway we'll have fun with ice breakers, discussion prompts and local trivia.

Your host is an outward-thinking individual who lived in three cultures on two continents. Fluent in 7½ languages, he visited 40+ countries from Nicaragua to North Korea and loves sharing off-beat travel stories. Ask him anything!

Total time: ~6 hours
Language: English
Bring: Extra water and snack for underway
Wear: Firm shoes, rain gear depending on weather
