April Come She Will – Spring 2023 Tours

Think it’s too late to join a spring tour? Think again! It’s almost never too late to take fate into your own hands and plan a spring getaway. Case in point: we booked a February 18 Patagonia tour on February 6. However, when you find a tour that you want to join, it’s not sold out, and you are less than 90 days from departure, heed these guidelines for maximum success:

  1. Make sure you can get flights before your submit your reservation. Place a hold on purchase for as long as possible or purchase refundable tickets.
  2. You need to submit your reservation with form of payment before we will check hotel and bike availability.
  3. We won’t process your reservation until we can confirm hotel and bike availability, and that can take from 1 to 3 days.
  4. Full payment is due at time of booking.

With that in mind, here are a few tours we think deserve your attention because spring is absolutely one of the best times of year to travel. Wildflowers. Fewer crowds. Warm days. Coolish nights. The energy of emergence. Did we say fewer crowds? And if you give us that line about not being in shape, you might consult point three of this article or consider renting an e-bike.

Cycling Ancient Greece: Sparta to Kardamyli

Greece is about as close to spring perfection as you can get. Take it from head tour leader Yorgos Paraskevopoulos. His insights on what make the Southern Peloponnese a must-experience spring tour read like a poem and make us yearn for instant transport, ala Harry Potter style, from Denver to Sparta.

Bike Across Portugal Plus! the Coast
Bike Across Portugal

On the opposite side of Europe awaits this gem of a tour from Elvas to the Algarve, a northeast to south west diagonal cut across Portugal’s southern tier, to the edge of the formerly known world. While our late August departures fill fast, the first of the season is still low in numbers, allowing you ample personal time with tour leaders, other guests, and many, many flowers.

Bicycling the Islands of Dalmatia Plus! the South Coast
Bicycling the Islands of Dalmatia

seaside cycling in Croatia

There’s no mistaking the dramatic limestone formations of Croatia’s Dinaric Alps as they plunge right into the sea, fracturing into a series of islands that stretch the length of the Dalmatian Coast. From coast to island, this tour embraces the beauty of spring as soft light sparkles off the blue Adriatic and the sea warms into the edge of summer.
