"The biking was every bit as spectacular as you had suggested, the weather was kind, the guides were terrific, and we are committed customers for life" - August C.
Freewheeling was conceived in 1987, and the adventure has now grown from ten new bicycles in a garage to a wonderfully-staffed office and well-maintained bike fleets, and from six adventures in Eastern Canada to more than 60 tours around the world. Today, your experience is enhanced both by all we have learned in 29 years, and by the technology we can use to plan all the details of your active holiday. Your joy is our joy; and that is our purpose. We acknowledge that we are different from other tour planning companies. We are based in rural Nova Scotia, and we choose to stay small. We do not “do” travel shows; we do not succumb to the financial temptation to put 16 or 30 people on a small group trip; and we work together in an atmosphere of fun and team spirit. There are only six of us year-round, working in a small office in a beautiful setting. We are friends and family; we care about the experience with which you have entrusted us; and when you join us for a week of active exploring, we encourage you to find your inner child as you drop the concerns of the workaday world. Laughter and sharing are our intentions and rewards. Please join us as soon as you have a chance. We will show you good food, quiet routes, comfy sleeps, unobtrusive service, and genuine care. The trips proposed herein are blank canvases of organization upon which, with the help of our guides, partners, and friends, you can paint rich tapestries of colourful experience. As a partnership between your exploratory desires and our experience and capabilities, your holiday can unfold in the true spirit of adventure.
Thank you for reading. The adventure has already begun!
Why Travel with Freewheeling?
Small groups. Guided groups are usually 12 or fewer, and guide to guest ratio is usually 1:6 or better. We use small inns inaccessible to larger groups. You get unparallelled service, more personality, more flexibility, and more fun!
Quality & Excellence. Choose us because of our experience and integrity; because our destinations and routes are profoundly beautiful; because our equipment is excellent; and because of our commitment to superlative knowledge and care. We also like to serve you healthy picnics with hand-ground, freshly-roasted coffee.
Guaranteed Departures. We do not cancel trips once we accept your reservation, so you can make plans with confidence. See the details on our terms and conditions page.
All Abilities. Travel your own distance at your own pace. You do not need to be super-fit. On guided trips, your support vehicle is available to help you make the most of each day's route. On self-guided trips, you can plan to arrange daily pickups or transfers to adjust the route.
