Europe Bike Tours

Cycling in Europe is the perfect vacation, combining culture, activity and luxury into one relaxing, stimulating adventure. Our Europe bike tours feature the very best off-the-beaten-path routes, incredible cuisine and luxurious hotels. Enjoy the most unforgettable experiences of Europe, from hidden trails to Michelin-star meals, and savor our thoughtfully planned routes on all our European bicycle trips whether you’re traveling in Slovakia or Spain.

Backroads has been hosting our Europe bike tours since 1988, when we first discovered the pleasures of pedaling through France’s Loire Valley. Since then, we’ve launched European cycling tours in dozens of countries. Perfect for all skill levels from beginner to avid, and with special e-bike options for travelers who prefer to take it easy, we’ve got something for everyone. Discover Tuscany, Sweden, Denmark, the Czech Republic, Portugal and more. Will you join us on a European bike tour?
