Cycling Holidays

Our leisurely cycling tours aren’t about clocking up the miles, they're about the time you'll spend in between. With a warm summer breeze on your skin and beautiful views in every direction, is there any better way to explore the beautiful wine regions of France, Italy, Spain, Portugal and the UK than by bicycle? 

We don't think so. Because there is so much to see and do along the way, our leisurely cycling tours are all about taking it nice and slow. From the lavender fields of Provence to coastal routes in Sardinia, our cycling holidays have so much to offer. Stop and explore, eat glorious meals, stay in delightful hotels (your luggage is carried for you) and indulge in the knowledge that everything else has been taken care of.

We are delighted to share with you our cycling trips in Spain and Portugal. Embark on a gourmet adventure in Catalonia, as you take in the cultural sights and gorgeous architecture. Or head to the scenic Douro Valley, where vineyard vistas and wine tasting await you.
