Cycling past fragrant lavender fields in France… Pedaling the challenging inclines of the Dolomites… Enjoying views of the beautiful Dalmatian coast in Croatia and smelling the salty sea air…. These and more are all bicycle tours to Europe offered by Backroads, experiences that can be yours.
European destinations are some of our most popular routes here at Backroads, and the way we travel lets you see Europe in an entirely different way. Forget bus tours and car trips and get out into the fresh air. We promise you there’s no better way to see this ancient part of the world than pedaling under the blue skies.
Simply being outdoors as you journey from destination to destination awakens the senses and open doors you would have missed inside the tour bus. By bike, you can stop at that delicious-looking café whose sweet smells are wafting into the air, or stop and have a chat with a local selling produce by the side of the road. Enjoy both the sights and the sounds of each unique town and country.
Traveling Europe by bike lets you become a part of the culture, and not just remain an outsider looking in. Plus, our wonderful trip leaders will guide you every step of the way, sharing with you the history and eccentricities of each locale.
With Backroads, all you have to worry about is the journey. Our team is there to handle any issues with your bike, provide you with a snack when you need a little more fuel for the ride or even if you need to take a moment to relax and want to head back to the hotel. Maybe you’re inspired to take a longer journey and our trip leaders will give you an alternate route so you can pedal to your heart’s content.
Plus, we have the trip planned out in all its details from the wonderful restaurants where you’ll dine to the hotels and inns where you’ll rest your head at night.
