Experience the freedom of a cycling tour…

September 19th, 2018 by
Cycling tours in Europe

At Breakaway, we love the feeling of freedom and believe everyone needs a break from their daily routine once in a while
Here we like to unplug from daily life by pedaling through the countryside or walking a well-trodden trail – where nothing else matters but the here and now.

From iconic cities to rural hideaways, we love nothing more than really getting to know a destination – learning about the ancient histories, discovering new cultures and experiencing sumptuous local cuisine.Follow lesser-known trails through vast landscapes, drink wine from the local vineyards – truly get to know the destination – hear the sound of the parakeets or the rhythm of the lapping sea as you recharge.

All you need to do is sit back and relax as we take care of the planning.

Travel with Breakaway and enjoy the freedom.
