Looking for a cycling challenge? These tours are on the tougher side, but as always, with greater challenges come greater rewards. We have created these cycling trips to really push you, with longer days, some tough hills and some off-road sections where you will have a bumpier ride, but they open up areas of Europe that are a must-see. With deeply beautiful scenery, delightful little towns and villages and immersion in local culture like no other, that glass of local wine after a tough day on the bike will taste all the more delicious. If you want to take the edge off a little, there is always the e-bike option to give those legs the occasional rest.
You can power through the incredible Le Puy Route of the Way of St James, riding this beautiful pilgrimage route through the south of France, or take to the rolling hills and stay in the white villages of the stunning Sierra de Grazalema. Discover Europe's newest must-visit location when you cycle through Northern Macedonia and Greece or ride one of the most beautiful trails in the world on the Kattegattleden in Sweden.
Our local teams have designed these tours to get the very best from the challenging cycling tours of Europe.
