The Slow Cyclist
We take our guests to parts of Europe & Africa that we’re passionate about, where we have the knowledge and the finest contacts to create cycling holidays and journeys that live long in the memory.
Ancient Greece, the cradle of Western democracy, is of course home to some of the world’s most celebrated historic sites, not to mention an endless array of idyllic islands.
Our journeys see us heading off the beaten track by sail, by bike and on foot, to the lesser-known mainland regions of the Peloponnese, Zagori, Crete’s hinterland and the remote Dodecanese islands.
Romania is one of Europe’s most beautiful but least explored countries and remains one of the continent’s most exciting destinations for the slow traveller.
Transylvania in particular is home to rich medieval heritage, wildflower meadows, endless beech forests, brown bears, wolves and lynx and a way of life that has, in some parts, changed little for centuries.
South Africa is a land of stunning natural diversity, vibrant culture and abundant wildlife. From the breathtaking coastlines of the Western Cape to the awe-inspiring wildlife of Kruger National Park and the enormous space of its interior, the country offers something for everyone.
The Karoo, where we focus our attention, is a vast region that covers a significant portion of South Africa’s interior. With its mix of stark landscapes, rolling hills, and rugged terrain, it’s the perfect place in which to unwind as you pedal through old Dutch towns and villages, past towering cliffs and winding rivers, and into the heart of some of South Africa’s most spectacular natural scenery.
