Discover Europe

The Old World is ever new when you explore Europe on a VBT bike tour, walking vacation, or bike and boat trip. Cycle easy bike routes through magnificent alpine vistas or chateau-dotted valleys. Follow the paths of pilgrims and vintners. Drift by barge along tranquil, windmill-dotted waterways, disembarking to coast into charming villages.

VBT’s bike tours in Europe are as varied as the continent itself. Pedal amidst scenic splendor, from Croatia’s stunning Dalmatian Islands to Poland’s pastoral vistas to the rolling terrain and hilltop towns of Tuscany. Follow wine roads in Germany and France, breathtaking lakeside paths in Slovenia and Austria, and sweeping coastal lanes in Spain and Ireland.

Discover the scenic hillside vineyards of Portugal and Italy. Amble along the green vales of Killarney. Follow in the footsteps of Van Gogh and Monet in the sun-kissed flower fields of Provence. Follow mighty rivers deeper into Europe’s quiet corners, from Germany’s half-timbered houses and lush vineyards to Holland’s storybook windmills and vibrant tulip fields.

At every turn, you’ll be immersed in European culture and make personal connections with locals. Learn to prepare some of the Continent’s most prized cuisines with expert cooks. Sample celebrated vintages and spirits and take your place at the table in local homes and family-run restaurants for unrivalled insight into daily life.

We had such a wonderful bike tour in the Mosel. We enjoyed our fellow bikers. The barge was welcoming, clean and comfortable. The guides were capable, knowledgeable about the area, anxious to make sure that each of us was comfortable on our bikes, and very funny. The crew was ready, willing and more than able to assure our safety, take care of our onboard needs and feed us delicious and beautifully presented food Also, they were so much fun. No Kidding. Even the weather cooperated. Did I mention the worth while side trips? And picture-perfect German towns?

Heart of Europe Bike & Boat: Cochem to Metz

Cruising on the barge gives a great overview of the breathtaking scenery. Then diving into the countryside gets you up close to the people, sight, sounds, and smells - a sensory experience, not just a glimpse from a bus or car.
