Bike & Boat Holidays

Brand new this year, our Bike & Boat holidays are for people who love to get out on the water as much as they love pedalling on land. The concept is simple: spend your days pottering around on your bike, then retire to your boat in the evening for a delicious meal and a good night’s sleep.

Guided Tours

Each tour is a guided tour. The beauty of this is that your tour leader is on hand to guide you along the route, share local knowledge about where you’re cycling... and always ensure that you don’t miss the boat! It’s a great option for people who enjoy peace of mind, safe in the knowledge that someone else is taking care of the daily schedule. It’s also a good way to meet like-minded people. We’ll provide route maps and repair kits if you decide to your own thing for a day or so. Just remember to be back on board in time for dinner and departure.

About Our Boats

All our barges and river cruisers are equipped with everything you need for a fabulous holiday: comfortable ensuite cabins, sizeable living areas, a restaurant and sundecks. Think of it as a floating hotel, fully crewed with a skipper and catering staff. You’ll enjoy a hearty breakfast each morning, and be sent off with a delicious packed lunch. Later, after a glorious day’s cycling, you can return to the boat for a tasty evening meal served with wine. You will be staying on one of four boats: Vita Pugna or Ave Maria for tours in Italy and Soleo or L'Estello in France.
