We feel privileged to serve our unique itineraries to an international community of active travelers, ages 2 to 92, who share a love for cross-cultural learning. Our guests' curiosity, spirit, and passion continually inspire us to reach for the highest standards possible. The group energy that blossoms on every Ciclismo tour will invigorate you and your fellow companions.
We design itineraries that reveal the incredible variety, scenic beauty and cultural treasures of each region. And our efforts show it! We’ve were awarded “One of the Best Adventure Outfitters on Earth” by National Geographic Adventure in 2009 and 2010, And National Geographic Traveler named our Sardegna Multisport tour one of the “50 Tours of a Lifetime.” We've also been covered by Bicycling, the Denver Post, Business Week, the Boston Globe, the Wall Street Journal, and more.
We thoroughly research, scout, and continually upgrade each itinerary, so that you will experience the best and most authentic aspects of each tour. In addition to traveling these distinctive, breathtaking routes, we design itineraries that encourage you to taste the regional food, speak the language, discover the history, and even dance with the locals! Continuous feedback from guests, guides, and our own personal visits enhance each and every biking and hiking tour.
