Discover the diversity of Europe on your next bike tour. Whether it’s on the rocky coasts of Ireland, deep in the vineyards of Spain, or high in the Swiss Alps, Europe is filled with natural and cultural delights that could fill a lifetime. And, there is no better way to begin experiencing them than from the seat of a bike, pedaling past rows of cork trees in Portugal or along the Dalmatian Coast in Croatia.

Destinations In Greater Europe

Greek Islands freckle the Mediterranean, a constellation of rocky outcroppings and volcanic vestiges afloat in the sapphire-blue sea. Life here is full of simple pleasures: the uncomplicated flavor of fresh-caught mackerel straight from the fisherman’s net, simple salads of homemade cheese and organic vegetables, and bread studded with olives fallen from windswept trees. Rides take advantage of the bright, clear days abundant in this archipelago, coasting through car-free towns, climbing to island pinnacles for unobstructed views, and passing lumbering donkeys on stone streets. When you’re not cycling, swim along beaches as white as the hillside villages or sip ouzo beneath a canopy of bougainvillea. The allure of ancient history can be found almost everywhere. Yachts parting the Aegean Sea nod to Homer’s seafaring Odyssey, crumbling temples hint at the mysterious lives of monks and oracles, and the medieval city of Rhodes radiates Byzantine and Ottoman roots.
