Cycling Vacations & Bike Tours


Taking a bike vacation often means slowing down our usual daily pace and to take time to smell the flowers. A vacation is best when we can take the time to notice what’s around us, to breathe the air, take in the local aromas, and meet locals. There’s hardly a better way than on a bicycle tour, exploring local culture in smaller towns and villages and there are many trip options available.

Joys of a Cycling Holiday

From the rolling hills of Tuscany and storied medieval villages of Provence to the Andean foothills of Argentina’s wine country and the lush vineyards of Sonoma, bike vacations are a fabulous way to travel.

Authentic vacations
On a bike tour you’ll experience authentic local culture, outrageously satisfying regional food and drink, and sometimes stunning luxurious accommodations. Of course, adding some exercise into your vacation is a key motivator, too.
Guided cycling trips
Cycling with a seasoned guide provides the added value of being able to call on the guide’s extensive local knowledge and orchestrate engaging and authentic visits. A support vehicle is on call if and when you need it.
Biking on a river cruise
Most river cruises carry bikes on board or arrange bikes at stops along the way, or even if you wish to ride between stops on the itinerary. You can combine the best of both worlds biking as part of a river cruise.
E-bikes and more
While there are a number of companies with bike tours, a growing number offer power-assisted e-bikes. We work with experienced operators that provide: more personalized experiences, smaller groups, boutique quality accommodations you will find more satisfying, use top-level equipment, and employ guides who are passionate, knowledgeable and fun.
Pocket Travel on the go
We'll also provide you our Pocket Travel app so you'll have your itinerary and flights available on your smart phone or other devices, along with additional destination information and a way to stay in touch if needed.
