Bicycle Tours to Warm You Up This Winter
One of the many reasons we love travel is that it gives you the freedom to escape snowy winters and to cycle in the sunshine. Now that summer is officially coming to an end in the northern hemisphere (sorry for the reminder) it’s a great time to book your warm weather getaway so that you’ll have something to look forward to as winter begins to settle in.
Combine our central and western bicycle trips of Cuba for a 16-day in-depth tour. Experience and discover the change Cuba has seen in the last 10 years. Escape chilly days and warm up with sunshine and cycling on this extended bike tour as you fully immerse yourself in the country’s beautiful landscape, warm culture, and hidden architectural gems. Cuba is like no other country, it will intrigue, captivate, and transform you.
Explore Chile’s grand estates, colonial cities and beach towns as you travel through the area of some of Chile’s top wine producers. March is the perfect time to travel to Chile’s wine region as the grape harvest has begun along with 70 and 80 degree temperatures, affording perfect riding weather to sample the award-winning, new-world wines of the Central Valley.
Pedal a little further off the beaten path on northern Argentina’s paved roads winding through lush valleys, pre-Incan ruins, deserts, cloudforest, and wine country. Put your cycling legs to the test on some winding climbs and take time to explore quaint towns such as Purmamarca, famous for its, ‘Cerro de Siete Colores’ (hill of seven colors), brightly tinted rock layers overlooking this charming town.
Can’t choose between Argentina and Chile, why not do both? Escape to warm and sunny Patagonia this December, January, or February and traverse from Argentina to Chile through storybook towns set among snow-capped peaks, pristine lakes and rushing rivers.
We promise, you wont regret it!
“I had such a fantastic time on this tour. I think I can speak for my whole family when I say that this was my most favorite vacation of all time. I absolutely LOVED the hotels including the range and variety we got to stay in. Food was good, especially breakfast. Loved the empanadas as well. I felt like I really got to experience a great part of Patagonia and even the volcano was a good story. All pre-trip correspondence was so informational and very much helped me to prepare for the trip.” – Tiana E., Steamboat Springs, CO
“Sampling grapes right off the vine and then drinking the final product at one of the vineyards was amazing. Oh, and the museum in Santa Cruz blew me away. Let’s not forget about the biking; great roads, little traffic and stunningly beautiful country. Phenomenal tour and the guides were the best of the best. The experience of a lifetime. The Chilean people were welcoming and incredibly gracious as well.” – Marty V., Plymouth, IN
“Incredibly well-planned and supported in an exceptionally beautiful locale. My favorite things: The camaraderie of the group, interacting with the friendly, encouraging and knowledgeable support staff and the home-cooked meals eaten at the homes of ordinary local people.” – John T., Portland, OR
