Cycling holidays give tourists the chance to immerse themselves in both the landscape and culture of a foreign land and nothing is more visually impressive when exploring new found territory than being dwarfed by a majestic mountain range.
These rocky behemoths have been luring view hunters and mountaineers for centuries.
If like many of these people you are yet to experience these wonders first hand, or perhaps you are looking to reignite your passion for them, here is some fabulous cycling holidays you might want to check out:
Few sights on Earth come close to matching the sheer size of the Swiss Alps.
On our cycling holiday you’ll get the chance to experience these mountains in their full glory first hand.
You will be staying at the Interlaken hotel in the Bernese Oberland; the heart of the Swiss Alps.
From here you will cycle along various rotes along the mountains, reaching locations ideal for taking in the panoramic views like Beatenburg and Zermatt.
Zermatt, of course, is the picturesque town seated ideally at the base of the mighty Matterhorn; one of the highest mountains in Europe. So be sure to take plenty of amazing pictures!
During your stay you’ll also get to explore further afield portions of the area via rail and cable car, so you’ll have plenty of chance to sample some brilliant views.
Definitely a mandatory holiday for mountaineers!
