Like so many of you, we just love to bike and are fascinated with local character and culture wherever in the world we may be! However, it can be challenging to choose a country, find the perfect hotel, rent a bike, and map out a route all on your own.
That’s why we are so excited to tell you about some of our favorite international cycling adventures. There is no better way to experience cool places than with a bike tour. Seamlessly curated bike tours to exotic destinations offer a different and exciting perspective of the world.
Getting on a bike and off the beaten path, you will connect with people and places in ways you never imagined possible, as you stay in stunning hotels or aboard private yachts, enjoy amazing culinary experiences and discover local history and culture through carefully designed activities. Your charismatic tour guides are cycling experts, foodies and wine connoisseurs, making the most out of each and every detailed moment of your tour!
Every day of your trip is an exploration of history, culture, exceptional food and wine and authentic local experiences. The singular focus on these exciting tours is bike travel. You can choose a small group tour based on your ability from a list of available dates, or you can grab your friends and family and head off on a private adventure! Here are four of our favorite unexpected destinations for your next bike trip that we cannot rave enough about!
There are different levels of cycling tours based on ability, and daily routes include longer and shorter ride options. For example, if you are an advanced cyclist but are choosing a more leisurely tour, guides are happy to take you out for some extra miles. If you have your heart set on an itinerary with more advanced riding, you can rely on the support van to sweep the route—or use electric assist to quicken your pace. All gear is always included.
