Moderate Bike Tours and Cycling Holiday Packages for Small Groups

Moderate Tour Packages for Small Groups

Designed for for small group travel, these tours require moderate fitness levels. They 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; you will usually still have time to stop and take photos, and enjoy your lunch breaks. As always, vehicle support, excellent food, and charming inns are included. These moderate tour packages are designed for all fitness levels, and available with differing support levels including guided, self-guided, private, and customized.

Guided trips include abundant van support and the local knowledge of your guides to help you enjoy the route and its options in an informed way, at your own pace. We often congregate for picnics and other delights but we rarely travel as a pack. The guided groups are kept small – usually fewer than twelve, with a minimum of four except on a private basis. We propose scheduled dates, and are open to adding new departures for you to enjoy privately or for us to invite others to join.

On self-guided trips we move your luggage for you, transfer you along the route when necessary, and are just a phone call away for suggestions or if you need help. Self-guided tours are available for as few as two participants, on any dates you choose.
