Lanzarote Bike Tour - Land of the Volcanoes

We say: Take a loop of Lanzarote through unique and spectacular volcanic landscapes. You'll cycle past wildly varying terrain with beaches, mountains, caves and geysers all lining your path. Being so far south, we highly recommend it as a winter cycling destination when the island is quieter and temperatures are cooler - though not so cool as at home, and with plenty of blue skies overhead as you cycle!

Freedom Trekkers say:"Lanzarote is certainly different! The scenery was spectacular - both the black, barren interior and the dramatic coast. The roads are excellent and we covered all the longest and hardest route options." - John Gladman

"We really enjoyed this tour which covered the whole of the island visiting many interesting places along the route." -Sally Novell

Madeira Bike Tour

We say: A year-round cycling paradise, the sub-tropical island of Madeira provides consistent sunshine and a mild climate keeps the exotic flowers and gardens colourful even through winter. The numerous climbs and downhill stretches as you cycle around the island make this tour best suited to regular and experienced cyclists with a good level of fitness, but the steepest and longest climbs are softened with transfers.

Andalucia Bike Tour - Ronda to Cadiz

We say: Starting in the stunning hilltop town of Ronda, you'll cycle a beautiful route through classic Andalusian white villages. Once you reach Jerez, don't miss the world-famous equestrian school and the dancing horses. Andalucia is one of Europe's warmest destinations so you can be sure of good cycling weather in the early spring while avoiding the peak temperatures in summer.

Holland's Tulips, Windmills and Historic Cities Bike Tour

We say: During these cold grey months, why not put a splash of colour on your horizon? Our Holland's Tulips, Windmills and Historic Cities Bike Tour is a fantastic short break that takes you through spectacular tulip fields as you cycle from Haarlem to Leiden and back up to Amsterdam. And if you want to spend a day at the world-famous Keukenhof flower exhibition, we recommend booking an extra night in Leiden.

Bikes were ready and waiting when we arrived and hotels were also helpful and welcoming. Look out Netherlands! We'll be back!" - Linda Davies

You'll stay aboard thestylish two-masted motor yacht, the Magellan, which boasts a spacious sundeck and swimming platform.

Danube River - Passau to Budapest Boat & Bike Tour

We say: It's no wonder that the dreamy blue waters of the gentle Danube River inspired the strains of Johann Strauss's waltz. The winding river passes by scenes of exquisite natural beauty; untouched forests, dramatic river bends and pristine islands offer an astounding sensual array to any traveller.

On our Passau to Budapest Bike Tour, you'll cruise along the famous river, disembarking to breeze along gentle cycle paths. Along the way, you'll stop off in idyllic villages and cosy taverns and visit superb centres of culture. All four countries are pleasant in June, without the higher temperatures of southern Europe.

Amsterdam to Bruges Bike Tour

We say: Saddle up in the world's cycling capital itself on our Amsterdam to Bruges Bike Tour. Beginning in Amsterdam, where bikes famously outnumber people, you'll enjoy a week of pedalling along some of the best cycle paths in the world. You'll explore dykes, polderlands and meadows while visiting some outstanding centres of culture and finish in the charming medieval city of Bruges.

The Netherlands shares a latitude with the southern half of England, so we'd recommend the spring and summer months as the best time to get some warm weather on this tour!

Stockholm Archipelago Bike Tour

We say: Sweden's fresh air is best experienced in summer if you're looking for some cool temperatures as you cycle. We recommend August as the perfect time to enjoy the pleasures of island-hopping around the Stockholm Archipelago.

Lake Constance & Rhine Falls Bike Tour

We say: Care-free, car-free and sparkling with scenic beauty, cycle tours don't get much more idyllic than a lap of Lake Constance. Add to that a visit to the rushing Rhine Falls and you'll witness some of the best scenery central Europe has to offer. The cycling around the lake is gentle and well-signposted, with plenty of amusem*nts dotted around the lake from aquariums to butterfly houses to lidos.

Freedom Treks customer Ellen says: "This holiday had everything you need for interest and relaxation. The bikes were good quality and we were given a detailed briefing before we set off. The pickups and transfers ran like clockwork and the hotels were all of good quality. A feature we enjoyed was access to a pool after a day's cycling. I didn’t realise how refreshing this would be. Floating in a pool is a super way to end the day." - Diane Fleming

"The holiday provided a great combination of cycling and relaxing! The cycling was mainly on quiet roads/tracks away from traffic. We enjoyed relaxing around the hotel pools in the afternoon and exploring the small towns. The organisation was great; the route was very easy to follow using the Garmin provided and there were also detailed notes for each day so you could check the route beforehand and identify possible coffee/juice spots). All transportation and luggage transfers were spot on." - Kate Sharrock

Vietnam Bike & Boat Tour

We say: Travel the length of Vietnam from north to south and watch the culture and landscape of this amazing destination transform around you as you cycle. Gentle cycling days mixed with other activities and sightseeing make it easily accessible for every level of cyclist. Cruising the islands of Ha Long Bay is a bucket list experience not to be missed! We recommend travelling in November when Vietnam tends to be cooler and dryer outside of the hot and humid summer period.

Freedom Trekkers say: "This is literally the holiday of a lifetime. The trip is organised so meticulously, the logistics of boats, kayaks, beaches, bikes, hotels, lodges, lunches, villages, cities, historic sights and flights are beyond compare... Our amazing guides Hoang and Shauny filled us with the most fascinating information to bring Vietnam to life. It is truly a trip like no other" - Jain Birchenough

"Another great holiday, really enjoyed Vietnam and the people... All the hotels were good, great food and the service on the boats fantastic (who can complain about complimentary foot massages and co*cktails on the deck as you glide along the Mekong Delta!)" - Suzanne Ralston

Best of South & Central Vietnam E-Bike Tour

We say: This route through the hills and along the coast of central Vietnam gives you something different every day you spend in the saddle. Keen cyclists will love the undulating terrain and views, while e-bikes make the hills approachable for all. Similarly to November, December is an ideal month to enjoy a cycling holiday in Vietnam because of the cooler and more favourable conditions.
