As a family or multi-generation group you may book any Freewheeling Adventure, and can request a private version if you like. Otherwise, once you have reserved, we will do our best to attract other families with similar ages.



If young children are part of your family plans, please call us (800-672-0775 in North America) to include us from the start, and to ascertain the suitability of your tour choice. We will work for you to maximize the fun and ease the planning for you. We are a family business with plenty of experience with family groups. We know that young children like to slow down and play at every opportunity, and that parents and grandparents sometimes like to play a part in that fun while also covering the day's route. We adapt to these mixed needs with a flexibile guiding style, sensitive to the preferences and dynamics of each family group. It is common for us to adjust the pace to suit the youngest or oldest, while asking for the indulgence of faster explorers, to keep the holiday spirit at its best. If you instruct us otherwise, we listen to that, too.


There are discounts available when three people share a room. If a third participant 12 years old or younger shares a room with two other full-paying guests, they receive a 20% adventure discount. This becomes a 50% discount if the third participant is 4 years old or younger. We avoid the use of temporary beds for adults, but if you can accept one for your children, it can open up more sharing possibilities and savings.


Children's bikes, trailer-bikes, and trailers, when rented in association with a Canadian tour and other adult bicycle rentals, are complimentary. We extend this saving to adult bikes ridden by teenagers travelling with parents on a Canadian or European trip having a minimum of four participants. Burley d'Lite trailers, with a total weight of 17lbs, and a towing capacity of 100lbs, are available for those who are yet too young to pedal. They are suitable for one or two children and have storage pockets, rain covers and sunscreens. Availability is limited, so please reserve well ahead. Trailer bikes attach to the back of any adult bike to turn into tandems suitable for children up to 4' tall. The children can assist you by pedaling or can simply freewheel as you do all the work while they focus their attention on the passing sights and your conversation. Tandem bikes are also available in some locations.

"My happiest family vacations are all with Freewheeling! Thank you for helping bring our family and friends together... Each year we create memories to last a lifetime." - Cindy and Larry B.
