Travel Information

Bicycle tour is a perfect way to spend time together. Instead of simply passing by interesting and beautiful places, you and your family can experience everything taking in the smallest details such as smells, sounds, landscapes and the special atmosphere felt only while being outdoors. As for the children, what can be better than keeping them interested and excited the whole day and having them happily exhausted at the end of the day?

Here are the world best family cycling tours to enjoy:

Danube Cycling Path


This is the most famous and popular bike route in Europe. Danube crosses 10 European countries winding through beautiful landscapes, forests and of course, cities like Passau, Budapest, Vienna, and Salzburg. You can either choose a long route spending the nights in different cities and villages or a short one having a laid-back ride stopping to enjoy a picnic in some picturesque place. If you prefer a long one, there are well-organised guided tours with a van carrying all necessary things including your luggage. In case you like short one day trips, you can stay in a small lovely hotel having a new destination to reach every day of your vacation.


Ireland won’t leave anyone indifferent. It is a perfect location to enjoy breath-taking landscapes, meadows, bay, and a national park. There are options available to make your vacation diverse and intense e.g. kayaking near Killary Fjord, fishing in Derryinver bay, riding horses on spectacular beaches and meadows and much more. Your baggage can be transferred according to your itinerary in order to make it lighter and easier for you and your family to have fun.

Italian Dolomites Path


It lies from the north-east Dolomites mountains to the famous and most popular Italian Lake Garda via Pustertal Valley, Bruneck, and Brixen. Since the route offers many interesting places, the best way to enjoy it is probably organising a self-guided ride. It gives you more freedom in spending time wherever you want, skipping some places in favour of staying longer in others. Such a tour costs less and allows you to plan the whole journey around what your family will enjoy.

San Francisco Path

Rent the bikes and enjoy cycling along the beautiful bay, fountains, impressive architecture, the marshes of Crissy Field and absolutely astonishing lookout area midway down the famous Golden Gate Bridge. Then ride downhill to the pretty seaside village Sausilito where you can spend a lovely evening having a delicious lunch, buying souvenirs in the local boutique shops and watching street magicians.

The Pamir Highway and The Silk Road


These destinations are for both ancient history lovers and exotics admirers. First, be ready to cross Iran and Turkey with their magnificent rich cultures, then head to the Silk Road cities called Bukhara and Samarkand, mountains, and finally reach Tajikistan’s Pamir. The whole route will take you approximately 6 months to complete while you enjoy the sights and sounds of these amazing countries.
