Worldwide Cycling Holidays

Cycling holidays offer a multifaceted blend of adventure, fitness, and exploration, making them an exceptional choice for travellers seeking a unique and intimate adventure.

The slower-paced and high manoeuvrability of cycling enables you to fully immerse yourself in the landscapes, cultures, and communities you encounter along your journey. You can pause to take in scenic views, interact with locals, and explore charming villages and towns that may not be accessible by car or other modes of transportation. Furthermore, exploring on two wheels also has strong environmental benefits, taking a step towards responsible travel, while at the same time fostering a deeper connection with the host country's natural surroundings.

Featured Cycling Holidays

KE Adventure: Experts in Cycling Holidays

We have more accumulated experience of worldwide adventure cycling than any other tour operator, and our itineraries are carefully created by our cycling experts with adventures to suit all levels of ability. Whether you fancy a leisurely e-biking journey exploring the best of the Algarve, a challenging European road cycling ride over the famous Tour du France cols, or a gravel road adventure on the south island circuit of New Zealand, we have what you are looking for.

Leisure Cycling Holidays

Our leisure cycling holidays are on quiet roads or cycle paths with no technical cycling. Amongst our easiest cycling holidays, they have a strong cultural and sightseeing focus with plenty of time off the bike. Easy-to-ride hybrid bikes work well and bike hire is usually included in the holiday cost.

Road Cycling Holidays

Our road cycling holidays follow surfaced roads throughout, covering relatively long distances best tackled on a Tour de France-style road bike with drop handlebars. One of the key advantages lies in the bikes themselves; high-quality road bikes are designed for speed, efficiency, and comfort, ensuring a smooth and exhilarating ride, ultimately enabling further stretches of terrain to be explored.

Enjoy cruising along the Danube from Passau to Vienna or exploring the beautiful Lake Constance, safe in the knowledge you can power through and pedal on, or linger as you please over a long lunch in the sun. Self-guided holidays let you complete your journey at your own pace.

Adventure Cycling Holidays

Our adventure cycling holidays vary from relatively easy to epic, either on tarmac or dirt roads. A mountain bike fitted with semi-slick tyres (or low rolling resistance cross-country tyres) is ideal for these journeys.

E-Biking Cycling Holidays

 E-bikes, equipped with electric motors, provide an extra boost of power that makes pedalling slightly easier, ensuring that cyclists of varying fitness levels can embark on memorable journeys together. This inclusivity allows families, friends, and even solo travellers to share in the joy of exploration, irrespective of their biking experience. E-bikes also enable riders to cover greater distances and tackle challenging terrains with ease, opening up a world of scenic routes and remote destinations that may have been otherwise out of reach.
