Exercise, exploration and ultimate enjoyment are just some of the reasons people just like you choose to embark on cycling holidays every day.

If this description fits you like a glove and you too are seeking the perfect cycling holiday, here are five brilliant cycling holidays for view hunters:
Out of all the beautiful views our world has to offer, if it ends up being listed as an UNESCO world heritage site, you can be sure it’s well worth seeing. The Dolomites are one such view.
Situated on the North East of Italy, the mountains’ highest peak stands at an impressive 3,343 metres tall and stretches for many miles.
Our cycling holiday to these magnificent peaks starts at the heart of the mountain range and follows along the glorious River Adige, through numerous villages, eventually culminating in the wondrous Italian city of Verona seven days later if you choose to stay for the duration of the trip.
The very name of the city of Venice has become synonymous with unmatched beauty, so this really is a trip you can’t afford to miss.
But, you’d be forgiven for not being aware of the mystifying Lake Bled in Slovenia, where your journey will start.
Like something lifted straight out of a fairy tale, a single island with a church stands alone at the centre, flanked by a magnificent white clifftop castle.
From here you will continue through the Julian Alps, taking in countless sights as you go, before crossing over into Italy eventually arriving in Portogruaro - one of the main centres in the period of the Serenissima Republic of Veniceâ.
Simply stunning from beginning to end.
One of the most awe-inspiring landscapes on the planet, the Swiss Alps have been delighting tourists, skiers and mountaineers for centuries.
With our cycling holiday you will stay at the hotel Interlaken, nestled between two lakes at the heart of the Alps.
