There’s nothing more memorable than riding around Europe on two wheels with the wind blowing in your hair and the warm sunshine giving you the feeling that only summer can. It’s exactly the kind of fun-filled holiday you’ve been searching for with excitement in the bucket-loads. We’ve even lined up three of our best family cycling holidays just for you.
River Danube Family Cycling Holiday
One of Europe’s most popular cycle paths, our Danube family cycling holidays follow the route along the River Danube passing through the picturesque towns and villages of Upper and Lower Austria and Bavaria, and are a perfect introduction to the magic of European cycling holidays.
Starting in the pretty baroque town of Schärding in Upper Austria our cycling holiday to the Danube follows a gentle ride along easy, mostly downhill tracks through Austria, ending up in the enchanting town of Linz. Short daily stages on well-marked, traffic-free paths, frequent breaks for activities and child-friendly hotels make this Danube family cycling holiday lots of fun for children and grown-ups alike.
Lake Garda Family Cycling Holiday
For dramatic mountain backdrops and glistening lakes, there is nothing that comes close to the beauty of Lake Garda. From the narrow-cobbled streets lined with cafes and shops to the sun-kissed shores, the area of Lake Garda is quite simply breath-taking. That’s enough of the scenery, what about the excitement? Wild animals, steep roller coasters or mysterious labyrinths. That’s what you’ll get to experience on our family cycling holiday to Lake Garda. It’s a proper family trip with something for young and old. You’ll start by riding through the vineyards of Lugana, before visiting the labyrinth maze of Sigurta Park, Gardaland theme park and even Parco Natura Viva zoo. What more could you want?
Costa Brava Family Cycling Holiday
The Costa Brava is often described as one of the most romantic, unspoilt stretches of coastline in Europe and what better way to see it all than by bicycle? Our Costa Brava family cycling holiday can be from two to five days, giving ample time to explore this fascinating area, as well as giving you the option to add on a beach or city break. You will stay in the unspoilt hamlet of Can Muni and spend your days exploring the coast, pine forests and the fascinating medieval, Greek and Roman architecture of the region.
You will also have the chance to visit the world famous Dalí museum in the town of Figueres and the Museum of Empordà which showcases the fascinating archaeological finds of the region, including the Hall of Asclepius. The trip makes a great introduction to Catalonia and the Costa Brava coast and there are options to ride different distances each day depending on your ability.
