Self-Guided Bike Tours

Our self-guided bike tours offer a balance of support and freedom to explore. Your bikes, accommodations, and luggage transfers are arranged, and a route and day-by-day itinerary are planned. Self-guided bike tours have more flexibility in your daily schedule but both guided and self-guided provide experiences you don’t get from the window of a train or rental car.
