Save $250 on All Adventures!

This year fill your life with stories, not stuff.

Storytelling is one of the oldest and richest parts of the human experience – from ancient hieroglyphics to the memories shared over dinner with friends. The stories we tell live on forever, while the things we own get tossed away or lost over the years.

Stories are what inspire us to take on that next great adventure; whether it’s cruising down the Nile with your Egyptologist guide, cycling through the terraced rice fields of Vietnam, canoeing past elephants in Botswana or picnicking outside famous chateaux in the Loire Valley. These grand adventures turn into new stories to tell for years to come.

Breakaway wants to help you make 2019 a year full of stories not stuff, so we’re giving you $250 off all our tours to 20+ countries on 55 self-guided and 25 guided walking tours and 45+ self-guided cycling tours. Book before November 30th, 2018 to save and be sure to use the promo code Adventure2019 at the time of booking.

Let the Adventure Begin

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.
