Custom or Private Tours
Do you want different dates?
Would you like to change the itinerary?
We can adapt.
We are willing to add new dates, for group or private tours. The price remains as advertised for a group of four or more on a guided trip, or for two people if it's self-guided. We may need to make changes if the original inns, etc. are already booked.
All you need to do is to fill out our reservation form, with your new dates. We will confirm quickly - usually within 24 hours on weekdays, and can then add the date to our advertising to attract others. If you prefer to keep it private, just tell us. The one proviso is that if there are just two of you booking a guided trip, you will be charged a 20% premium in the event that others do not join you. The bright side is that, once reserved, you can count on the trip, whether it remains private or becomes a larger group.
We are very flexible, and given enough time, can create a new departure, and even a new itinerary if necessary, to match your wants and needs.
To help you choose an appropriate level of daily challenge, we use elevation profiles to represent the route, and a challenge-rating system using symbols from the skiing world. Many of you will already be familiar with it; If not, here is a brief explanation. Note that these classifications may vary with weather and/or road conditions, and you should always arrive with a sense of fun and adventure. If you are unsure, choose a guided trip. The vehicle support can help you get over any hill, and can turn even the most difficult trip into an easy one.
The easiest routes we offer, these are generally flat and cover relatively relaxed distances. You will be comfortable riding a hybrid bike, walking in sneakers, or paddling a light kayak, and will normally have time to take many photos and enjoy extended lunches.
Requiring moderate fitness levels, these cover terrain with hills and valleys, and tend to include distances of 50-80km (30-50mi.)/day cycling, or 3-6 hours of walking per day. Most Freewheeling Adventures fall into this category, and are suitable for most ability levels.
The most challenging trips, these include longer distances, bigger hills, long hikes, exposed paddling, and full days of activity. We recommend a higher degree of fitness and training to make the most of the experience.
There is also a rare double black diamond, reserved for only the most difficult adventures.
“Our guides (Dan and Jacques) did a wonderful job with the picnics. The food at the inns was all good…the choices were excellent.”
