Organized Bike Vacations to discover Europe

A bicycle vacation is synonymous with freedom: landscapes and fresh air, an itinerary to follow at your own pace, and the possibility to stop wherever and whenever you want. If you like the idea but want to enjoy only the best parts of this experience, choose an organized bike vacation. The bike is provided on-site, and accommodations are already booked. Your luggage awaits you at the end of each stage, and for the route, you can follow maps or an accompanying guide.

How to do it, or rather, who to turn to? We recommend the Italian tour operator specializing in “easy bike vacations,” Girolibero, an exhibitor at past editions of the Cycle Tourism Show.

For over 20 years, Girolibero has been organizing bike vacations, taking care of all the details: they plan the itineraries and test the routes, select and book the hotels for each stage, provide maps and apps to follow the route independently, and transport your luggage every morning to the next hotel, so you can ride without burdens. The bike is provided for rental on-site, and for all trips, you can request an e-bike, making riding even easier.

You can choose to go independently with whomever you want or join a group of other participants, guided by a leader.

Where to ride? Girolibero offers week-long bike vacations along the most beautiful bike paths and cycling routes in Europe.

The most popular is the classic Danube Bike Path from Passau to Vienna, which crosses Austria from the German border to the capital, Vienna. A 300 km long bike “lane,” scenic and very comfortable!

Or the fascinating route among castles, medieval villages, countryside, and waterways in the Loire Valley, for a taste of French bike paths, which are increasingly numerous and well-equipped for cyclists.

There are so many itineraries to discover Europe by bike, and many countries are developing increasingly efficient bike networks. Here you can take a look at all the destinations to plan your next bike vacation in Europe.

Have you ever tried a “Bike and Boat”?

Want to add a bit more fun? There is a formula that combines bike stages with navigation along rivers, canals, or coastal routes, called “bike and boat.” A varied and convenient way to travel, as it allows you to explore cities and nature by bike or stay on the boat to contemplate the horizon in complete relaxation!

Where can you take a bike and boat vacation? In the Netherlands (of course!), where bike paths and canals are everywhere, but also in Germany, France, Austria,, alongthe coast and the Adriatic islands in Croatia or Greece, and… yes, even in Italy, where Girolibero has introduced the “bike and boat” formula with a unique itinerary between Mantua and Venice,here in its summer variant.

You can discover all of Europe by “bike and boat” in preview on the Girolibero website.
