What Are Self-Guided Cycling Holidays?

If you want to travel by yourself or with a group of friends or family, but don’t want to have to spend your holiday with a guide, then self-guided cycling holidays could be the option for you. However, if you have never been on one, or don’t know what they are, then don’t worry as we are on hand to tell you all of the ins and outs of what a self-guided bike tour involves. Put simply, a self-guided cycling holiday does what it says on the tin. It is a cycling holiday where you will act as the guide. Sounds simple doesn’t it?

That said, there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes on our self-guided tours of Europe that makes everything a little easier for everyone involved. For example, we take care of booking all of the hotels along your chosen route and you can pedal easy knowing that you will have a lovely hotel to rest your weary legs at the end of a long day’s cycling. We also take care of your luggage along the journey, meaning you don’t have to lug your cases from place-to-place, giving you more energy to enjoy the spectacular scenery and luscious landscapes that can be enjoyed on one of our self-guided cycling holidays.

Everything will be laid out and explained fully to you, so even though you don’t have a guide, you’ll be able to stay on course. With a welcome meeting at the beginning of the holiday, as well as detailed route notes and maps, you will be able to enjoy some of the best cycling routes and trails Europe has to offer. 

It is worth checking what is included in your self guided cycling holiday. For example, some of them may have ferries or cable car trips included in the price, so you don’t have to worry about the hassle of booking tickets and sorting them out. Just make sure you get there, and we will do the rest for you.
