A bike and boat cycling holiday along the beautiful Saar and Moselle rivers. Disembark each day for pleasant riverside cycle rides through the picturesque Moselle Valley. Visit atmospheric medieval villages, steeped in history and viticulture such as Trier, Bernkastel Kues, Traben-Trarbach and Cochem.
The MS Patria will be your floating hotel for the week and offers small but comfortable cabins, a sun deck as well as a pleasant salon/bar and restaurant. Daily rides lead you along the beautiful Moselle Valley, to historic, handsome towns in Germany’s most famous wine-growing region. Of course, there will be plenty of opportunities to sample the fine Moselle wines during the holiday.
Highlights include Trier’s ancient city centre, the charming river-side wine villages of Piesport, Bernkastel-Kues, Cochem and Zell as well as the simple pleasure of easy cycling through the blissful scenery of the Moselle Valley.
The cycle rides on this trip are very easy-going and cover around 25 miles per day. There are hardly any hills and the vast majority of the riding will be on smooth, paved, riverside cycle paths. If you don’t fancy pedalling one day, you can always stay on-board and let the boat carry you past the majestic scenery to the next night’s stop.
