In April 2015, Rachael and Sarah travelled aboard the MS Theodor Körner to experience the Danube River Tour. Smooth cycling along the Danube through Germany and Austria, this is a relaxing tour with spectacular views.
With Moorish forts, medieval towns, white washed hill top villages and unspoilt countryside, a stunning coastline and golden beaches, plus wonderful regional wines and fresh local food, Spain certainly has something for everyone.
In October, the entire Freedom Treks team hopped on a plane and jumped on bikes in beautiful sunshine to experience the Lake Constance tour, one of our best-selling cycling holidays. This easy six or seven night self-guided itinerary takes you around the spectacular shores of one of Europe’s largest lakes passing through Germany, Switzerland and Austria on an easy to follow and mostly car free cycle path. Direct trains from Zurich airport to Constance in Germany, the start and end point of the tour, makes travelling there easy. The team have shared their top tips and best moments of this fantastic hotel and cycle holiday, which is perfect for beginner cyclists and regular cyclists alike.
A Boat & Bike holiday is a unique way to explore a country - or even more than one. Cycle through pretty countryside and historic cities during the day, then meet your boat to relax, dine and sleep at night.
