Bike and boat tours: the best of both worlds!

Love to cycle and love being on the water? With bike and boat tours, you can experience the best of both!

Bike and boat tours are a popular choice for couples, families, and groups of friends looking for a unique vacation in Europe. Similar to hotel-based cycling tours, you cycle through beautiful landscapes and wonderful sights during the day.

Then, in the afternoon or evening, you’ll meet up with your “floating hotel” and continue to enjoy the scenery from the boat deck.

These tours are perfect for every traveler, including those who aren’t up for cycling every day, as they have the choice to simply stay on board and enjoy the scenery from the boat or venture out on foot when the boat is docked.

Why our clients love bike and boat tours

Bike and boat tours truly are the best combination — a leisurely cruise and an active vacation. And, you get to set the pace for how active or leisurely you want to be!

You’ll make new friends as you dine, cycle, sightsee, relax, and more with your fellow travelers during the tour. Travelers are often from around the world, making for an interesting mix of folks – but with a common love for travel and cycling, of course. An added bonus: there’s no packing and unpacking at each stop!
