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.

Fantastic scenery along the Mosel/Moselle and Saar rivers! Biking is easy, the vistas are wonderful and the barge (Iris) is a great home on this trip.

Heart of Europe Bike & Boat: Cochem to Metz

Nice choices for length and difficulty of daily rides. Diverse landscape. Loved the wine tasting. But, without doubt, what made this trip so great (other than the other travelers) were Kristin, Zsusy and Per. Incredibly accommodating, could think on the fly when the weather turned (who knew a rainstorm could be so much fun!) and they were just simply great people to hang with.

Lake Constance: Germany, Austria & Switzerland

Our first trip to Europe and our first bike trip and it was incredible. VBT made the trip hassle free allowing us to enjoy every moment of our trip. Seeing Europe on a bike is the best way to really see the country. Cycling through small hamlets, farm land and along rivers and canals is magnificent. The barge crew was great, trip leaders were awesome and the food was fantastic as well. A trip of a lifetime and we will return for another VBT trip.
