Our favourite self-guided cycling holidays could see you exploring Puglia or the Prosecco route in Italy, navigating coastal paths in Portugal, cycling along the Danube or Loire Valleys or circumnavigating Lake Constance – but what are the benefits of travelling self-guided?
Maximum flexibility - Choose the best date for you and depart on any day of the week. Get up when you want, start your day early to catch the sunrise or enjoy a lie in – it’s your holiday after all! Ride at your own pace, stop for coffee and cake or to take a photo whenever you feel like it.
Choose your travel companions – Travel on your own, as a couple or with friends – you choose who you holiday with.
Local support – On a self-guided holiday you still have full support from our local crew. They transport your luggage while you cycle and provide 24/7 emergency back-up in case you lose your way or need help.
Value for money – Take advantage of our negotiated accommodation rates and low-cost airlines. Pick off-peak days and dates to keep the costs down further. Cycling and travelling under your own steam saves you the cost of a guide and driver.
Feel good factor – Navigating from point to point and completing a well-planned route, as well as the physical exertion of getting yourself to your destination under your own steam will give you a great sense of satisfaction.
