Rivers and Lakes Cycling Holidays
Our Rivers and Lakes cycling holidays follow the courses of well-known rivers or the shorelines of some of the continent’s most beautiful lakes. Most offer easy, level terrain and dedicated cycle paths along much or all of the route. Carefree waterside cycling with plenty of charming villages and towns to explore along the way.
In a bygone era the major rivers were once Europe’s motorways and the grand old towns and medieval villages that line the banks are a testament to that fact. These lovely old places have an uncanny habit of appearing just as you feel like taking a break. Park the bike and have a wander round – these are leisure cycling holidays after all.
We offer a wide variety of river rides along great European rivers such as the Danube, Loire, Dordogne, Mosel and Elbe. Popular lake shore rides include Lake Constance on the Swiss/German/Austrian border and the stunning Salzkammergut region of Austria. Other popular waterside routes include the Canal du Midi in France and the waterways of Holland.
