Vietnam

Experience Vietnam up close and personal and enjoy cooler temperatures with our Vietnam cycling trip. Cycling is part of everyday life in Vietnam, so you can expect a warm welcome and enthusiastic waves from locals as you pedal along the interesting backroads. Explore the vibrant riverside markets of the Mekong Delta, uncover the emerald green wetlands of the Tra Su Cajeput forest and soak in the fragrant essence of tropical fruit orchards on the island of Binh Hoa Phuoc. 

India

Enjoy warm, dry weather and clear blue skies as you hop in the saddle and uncover the tropical coastline of ‘God’s own country’ on a cycling holiday in Kerala, India, this winter. Pedal past verdant tea, rubber and spice plantations, ride along golden sand beaches shaded by fanned palm trees and explore a labyrinth of tropical backwater villages along the coast of the Arabian Sea. 

Cuba

With quiet roads, few cars and warm, dry weather, the Caribbean island of Cuba is an idyllic destination for a winter cycling holiday. Explore Spanish colonial architecture, and the lush green crops of tobacco and sugar cane in the beautiful countryside. Ride alongside locals on horse-drawn carts and in classic American Cadillac cars, and enjoy warm hospitality in locally-run homestays before celebrating a fun day in the saddle with mojitos, live Cuban music and a Havana cigar. 

Spain

Southeastern Spain boasts year-round sunshine and mild, pleasant temperatures, so avoid the crowds and join our cycling tour to explore the rural countryside of Murcia this winter. This moderate-graded cycling trip will guide you along smooth, quiet, and gently undulating roads, past fruit orchards and through rustic villages. Stop for a delicious lunch of freshly made tapas in the Moorish town of Morattall and explore its 15th-century fortress before heading towards the lush green rice fields of Calasparra. 

Portugal

Pedal along the gilded coastline of Portugal’s Algarve on a cycling tour in winter to enjoy mild temperatures and fewer tourists, especially in November, December and January. Soaring rocky cliffs and rolling sand dunes are embellished with far-reaching views of the wild turquoise ocean. Cruise along the quiet country lanes of Zambujeira do Mar and freewheel along the meandering banks of the River Mira. 

Morocco

The mild climate of Morocco between October and April makes it an ideal winter cycling escape. Ride through palm-fringed gorges, across desert plateaux and past fortified Kasbahs, against the dramatic backdrop of the towering Atlas Mountains. Delve into colourful souks for a unique souvenir, stay in a traditional Berber village and spend a night under the stars in a Saharan nomad desert camp.

South Africa

Swap dreary winter climes for bright summer days on a cycling holiday in South Africa. Ride along the luscious Garden Route with its wild, rugged coastlines and pristine golden-sand beaches. Freewheel down the mountainous slopes of the Swartberg Pass, pedal to the southernmost point of Africa at Cape Agulhas and end each day with a feast of delicious local food and a well-deserved glass of wine from the Stellenbosch Winelands.

Sri Lanka

With warm and dry weather across most of Sri Lanka, winter is a fantastic time to visit for those in search of sunshine. As you cycle Sri Lanka you’ll explore lush tea plantations, rolling highlands and quiet backroads, as well as ancient cities such as the 12th-century ruins of Polonnaruwa. Take in the coastal breeze as you cycle through Bundala National Park where you may be able to spot crocodile, before soaking up the turquoise waters of the southern coast.
