Cycling holidays are all about being active, enjoying the sights and sounds of your destination as you ride. However, it's always nice to have a relaxing end to a satisfying day in the saddle and what better way than with a soothing dip in a pool, or some well-deserved time in a spa.
As we pedal into the new year, we’ve put together a selection of tours that we've tried out and can highly recommend for 2018. Whether it’s beautiful scenery in Italy, peaceful cycling in Germany and Austria or luxurious cruising around Croatia, these tours demonstrate the best that Europe has to offer in 2018.
We're constantly delighted to hear lovely anecdotes and see wonderful photos from people who travel with us, so we asked a number of our customers to share the unique experiences that keep them coming back for more.
The archipelago that surrounds Stockholm is the second largest in the Baltic Sea and is home to a stunningly beautiful coastline, quiet forests and attractive little villages. In June 2017, I cycled the route with my partner and our son and enjoyed a wonderful five-day break hopping between islands.
September and October are possibly our favourite months of the year for a cycling holiday. Routes are beginning to get less busy after the summer rush, temperatures are more comfortable and attractions are quieter than in the middle of summer.
In May 2017 myself, my partner and our two year old son enjoyed a 7 night River Danube Boat & Bike holiday filled with memorable days cycling through stunning landscapes, delicious food and a relaxing stay on the remarkably spacious, art-deco style MS Theodor Körner.
