Cycling Breaks in Europe
"Whether it's raining or the sun is shining, as long as I'm riding a bike I know I'm the luckiest guy in the world."
Recreational road cycling and mountain biking have seen a huge increase in popularity in recent years, with people of all ages enjoying the considerable health benefits that the sport brings.
Our cycling holidays in Europe include everything from guided road cycling breaks in Catalonia to gentler self-guided tours of the Croatian countryside and new e-bike breaks in Finland and Italy; we have packages suitable for all levels of ability.

Thanks to the surge in the number of regular cyclists over the last few years, we have found more and more interest in cycling holidays. Before we knew it, we had built up a selection of high quality cycling breaks in Europe that cater for both mountain bikers and road bikers; cyclotourism is booming, here are just some of the options on offer:
Guided cycling holidays
Guided trips are great for those who like some support on their rides from somebody who knows the area well. Choose from:
Fixed group departures, like this tour of Croatia’s national parks – great for those who like meeting people and being part of a group,
Flexible private tours for you and your friends, like our new road cycling holiday in the Costa Daurada, for small groups of 8 or more. Here you can decide the length and difficulty of routes to best suit your requirements.
Self-guided cycling holidays
Self-guided trips are ideal for those who like to stay independent and explore places on their own terms. We offer everything from mountain bike tours in the Alps for experienced off-roaders, to gentler tours of Istria in northern Croatia.
Pedal assisted e-bikes are the next big thing in cycling, introducing even more people to the sport. If you’re not convinced that you are fit enough for a cycling holiday, then why not think about an e-bike break? There are lots of advantages to taking an e-bike tour and they are fantastic for novices, taking a lot of the hard work out of pedalling so you can enjoy the scenery! Take a look at this e-bike tour near Helsinki, or this multi-activity break in Bormio including e-bike hire.
