A tour for serious biking enthusiasts, covering 20 to 30 kilometers (13 to 19 miles) a day over rugged, hilly countryside. But don’t worry, there’s plenty of light relief to enjoy too, including a full-day wine tour and stop-offs to take part in some of the local festivals. And, needless to say, some stunningly beautiful countryside and great food!

Day One: Check-in at 10.30 am, followed at 11 am by a brief orientation and briefing of the itinerary (details of which are provided on receipt of the initial deposit) and then at 12 noon we head out on to the road. Most of the afternoon is spent in the saddle and dinner is served at 8 pm.

Day Two: An early start – at 9 am – then you’re on the road to a new destination. Perhaps today you’ll visit a medieval town, or maybe a local market or a fun street festival. It all depends what’s happening in the area. You then head back to your hotel for some relax and a massage (be sure to reserve in advance). Dinner is served at 8 pm.

Day Three: Enjoy a leisurely breakfast and prepare to relax. Today, your driver will pick you up at 10 am to take you on your wine tour. Our two stops will offer you an overview of the various styles of wine making and the vastly different flavors that the grapes can offer. A light lunch is included. You will return you to your hotel for dinner at 8 pm.

Day Four: One more day of biking and discovering new treasures, with a start time of 9 am. If you have any special requests you should let your guide know in advance so we can do our best to accommodate you. Otherwise, we let the weather and our inclinations guide us.

Day Five: Breakfast at the hotel as usual and then you are on your own to spend the day as you wish.
