Get ready for an exciting year of ExpeditionPlus! tours. March 2017 kicks off our inaugural bicycle tour in South Africa. Our South African expedition will take you 1500km (900 miles) through the Eastern and Western Cape provinces of Southern most part of the African continent. Experience the diverse geography  and unforgettable wildlife of South Africa as you cycle along the breath-taking coastlines, spot wildlife on safari, and taste some of South Africa’s finest wine.  Next September, head to the European continent to cycle the epic ride over the Italian Alps following the eastern side of Italy all the way to the very heel of Italy’s “boot”.  Along the way you’ll visit a staggering eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites, stopping along the way to taste food from some of the most extraordinary culinary regions in the world.

 

Cycle South Africa

Riders will travel back in time as local raconteurs share tales of South Africa’s dynamic history and take in thriving art scenes and taste it’s world class wine. From the modern and vibrant Cape Town, to the forest and lagoons along the Garden Route, to the Cape of Good Hope’s stunning coastline, cycling in South Africa is diverse and beautiful as one might imagine.
