Bike Tours & Camping Holidays in Europe

Follow in the footsteps of real cycling pros or take leisurely cycling trips with the whole family. Europe has a huge selection of cycling routes and charming camping spots.


The region around Girona is very popular with professional cyclists and many of them even live here. So if you want to experience the great heroes of cycling up close, you should head to Girona. The Girona area is very varied, and the relatively traffic-free Catalan roads can be ridden even without professional experience.

If Girona is the home of the pros, Mallorca is where they come to train. Mallorca is probably the most famous cycling destination in Europe and therefore quite crowded during the high season. If you have the time, come in the low season and enjoy the varied roads and delicious tapas without the crowds of tourists.


During the cooler months, you can explore the south by bike on picturesque coastal paths. Apart from that, the Dolomites in the Italian Alps are one of the most popular cycling regions in the country. Here you will find one of the most impressive mountain panoramas in Europe with winding climbs and the unique cultural mix of Italian enjoyment with Austrian influence.

Live la Dolce Vita on the legendary Strade Bianche route in Tuscany. The famous white roads are a joy to ride with picturesque views and the best Mediterranean food.


If you are looking more for beach vibes and stunning nature, you will find what you are looking for in Portugal. In the very south of the country, in Algarve, cycling enthusiasts are treated to gentle hilly roads and enchanting ocean views.

If you want to try something different on your rest day, you can surf the waves here all year round and there are plenty of yoga studios to stretch.

North Scotland

Ride between lush green meadows over softly rolling hills in pleasantly balmy temperatures in Scotland. A wonderfully refreshing alternative to Spain or Portugal.


The famous Col du Galibier in the French Alps should probably not be missing from any cycling holiday wishlist. Famous thanks to the Tour de France and the Giro d’Italia, both of which frequently take place in this corner of the country, the route is perhaps one of the most popular climbs in the world.

As exciting as that sounds, to ride the Alps, you have to be in top shape and an experienced cyclist, because the dizzying climbs and dangerous descents have to be mastered with skill and experience.


Germany has plenty to offer for the advanced cyclists or leisurely bike riders. The Moselle Cycle Route leads along the Moselle through Saarland and Rhineland-Palatinate to France. Culture fans should take the Castle Road and see the castles and palaces along the 1.000 km route. In the north of the country, you can take the Old Postal Route from Cuxhaven on the North Sea to Osterholz in Lower Saxony. And the most motivated cyclists take on the Danube Cycle Path. It is 2,850 km long and runs through Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Romania. Perfect for an extended cycling road trip with a campervan.
