Difficulty Levels

About 95% of our routes are on paved roads, and are therefore suitable for road bikes and hybrids. We categorize our bicycle tours into three basic difficulty levels. Each of them comes with recommendations about how well you should be prepared in order to be able to comfortably complete all of the mileage (see below). However, we strive to accommodate cyclists of all levels.

Should you think that you are not quite up to a certain level, it is not a problem provided you don’t mind spending some time with our entertaining and knowledgeable drivers. On any tour, you can ride as much as you want and shorten your time in the saddle based on your fitness level and desire.

You can actually be on the bike tour without even getting on the bike if that’s something you’d prefer, for example, if your partner is an avid cyclist and you are not but would still love to spend holidays together. The choice is yours.
