In this anticlockwise tour of the island, there are stunning and varied inland and coastal volcanic landscapes. It's a windy island but the routes have been carefully crafted to minimize exposure to the prevailing winds. Also, the routes avoid the main commercial parts of resorts. All the food in our hotels and restaurants we visited was of high quality. Highly recommended.John Gladman, UK, February 2019
This is a perfect holiday, being an island, you can choose what level of cycling you want to do. It is a fascinating island with several amazing places to visit so you can combine that with the cycling. We have done the holiday twice each time following slightly different routes and visiting different places of interest. I could happily do the same holiday again.Georgina Parker, UK, December 2018
