The 'Bike & Boat' 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 Cycling Excursions
Most Bike & Boat tours come with a daily guided cycling option. The beauty of this is that your tour leader is on hand to guide you along the route, share local knowledge ... 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

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.
