Trans-Europa – Overview
Join us on a spectacular eleven week Trans-Europa bicycle tour through twelve countries. Our itinerary initially follows the ancient amber trade route used by the Romans, from St. Petersburg, one of the world’s most beautiful cities, to the Baltic states of Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, then onwards through Poland and Slovakia, Hungary and Slovenia, before the tour reaches its half way point in glorious Venice, Italy.
After a short break of gondola rides, pasta, and Chianti, we will cycle across Southern Europe to the Atlantic Ocean. En route we will ride along the Italian and French Rivieras, visiting Genoa, Cannes and Montpellier. Then it’s into Spain skirting the foothills of the towering Pyrenees to Barcelona where we will have 2 days to explore another of Europe’s most impressive cities. From there we head west across the Iberian peninsula to the Spanish capital of Madrid, the medieval town of Caceres and finally the great Portuguese capital of Lisbon, from where explorers like ourselves set sail to discover the world.
