This is a flexible Europe bike tour. You may combine the days on different order or even do a kayak or walking tour instead of cycling. All is adjustable. If you tell us your preferences in advance we will more likely be able to adapt the trip for you.
Also bear in mind we have 3 accommodations, 2 in the city and 1 in the country side, so chose your favorite in Teresa’s Houses website or request a mix of city and country side.
