Experience is everything. | CycleVentures

Experience is everything.

Like nothing else, cycling allows you to uncover unique and hidden aspects of a region and its culture. You'd never experience this from a rental car, tour bus or cruise ship. You can decide on whim to explore a winery, stop for a long lunch or venture even further on a quiet road.  Travelling by bicycle leads to authentic connections with a region, it’s people and a lifetime of memories. If you are willing to slow down and encounter a little adventure while riding throughout some of Europe's finest cycling regions, then you are ready for the incomparable pleasure of a cycling holiday with CycleVentures.

We’ll provide services to make your trip as seamless and wonderful as possible; little things that you won’t notice and more obvious ones too. As always, our guides and our support van are there when you need them.

After over four decades of active travel by bicycle we look forward to the next trip as if it was our first.

What our guests say about us

"The friendships that I've made, they've lasted forever. The excitement of knowing that I can get lost and found again. This is what I love about a cycling trip."
- Marg Terrett, guide since 1986
