Our Hotel & Bike tours

Hotel & Bike tours are the original cycling holidays. Islandhopping breathes new life into this way of travelling, offering amazing cycling tours in the most extraordinary regions all around the world.

 

Whether it be under the midnight sun in Norway, across the wide expanse of the Kruger National Park in South Africa, in the legend-shrouded region of Patagonia, through near-forgotten Albania, or on the enchanting south coast of Crete: all our Hotel & Bike tours assure a very authentic experience of your chosen destination. You will be accompanied by local guides on all our guided tours and be able to dive deep into the nature, culture and history of the region. During the trip, you will overnight at specially chosen traditional accommodation or bike friendly hotels and can enjoy the luxury of organised luggage transport. This way you can pedal without a worry in the world through the beautiful regions during the day and, in the evening, simply hop off your bike and enjoy a new, cosy accommodation when you arrive.

We also offer self-guided Hotel & Bike tours in Croatia, Italy, Slovenia, and Albania. If you prefer organized bike tours, we recommend our E-Bike & Hotel tour on the Lofoten Islands or our hybrid bike tours through South Africa, Albania, Crete, or Montenegro. For mountain bike enthusiasts, there are also several MTB & Hotel tours in Croatia and Patagonia.

 

Requirements for our Hotel & Bike tours

 

All our cycling tours require a basic level of fitness as well as practiced bike handling skills. However, there is something very important to us at Islandhopping regarding all our bike tours: it is a vacation and it is your time to have fun and relax. Therefore, we don’t want you to feel pressured at any point during the cycling tours which is why we ensure that there is always plenty of time to complete the tours at a comfortable pace. Every day, our tour guides will let you know the difficulty level of the planned tour. There is always time to stop for a drink, to take photos or simply to enjoy the view!

 

It is impossible to predict whether a cycling tour will be easy or difficult for a guest. Several factors play a major role such as individual physical fitness, general well-being, and how each individual copes with cycling in different temperatures.

 

Nevertheless, to give an idea of the requirements for our Hotel & Bike tours, we have separated them into different levels of difficulty for each bike category.

  • Level 1 Easy cycling tours for Islandhoppers who are confident on their bike but prefer less hilly terrain (15-30km and 200 meters of elevation per day).
