Family cycling holidays

A self-guided family cycling holiday in Europe is a great way to spend quality time together as you cycle from one family-friendly hotel to the next. We transfer your luggage and provide you with high-quality bikes and our highly praised route notes and maps, the rest is up to you.

Enjoy ‘together time’ on a

family cycling holiday

With lots to see and do along each route, as well as ‘free’ days built in so that you can do other things, our family cycling holidays are about more than pedalling from A to B. These being self-guided, non-group holidays, there’s no fixed timetable. Set off when you want, cycle as slowly as you want, and pause when you want – our reliable route notes flag up swimming spots, monuments and museums that are worth stopping at.
Each evening you can relax together in hand-picked, family-friendly accommodation, usually with a pool or near a beach.
To primary-school children and younger or sporty teens, you can sell the holiday as a real family adventure, with the chance to help with map-reading, picnic by the side of streams, explore ancient castles and much more besides.
Older teenagers may prove harder to convince, but the prospect of chilling out by the pool or on the beach every other day usually appeals, and you could combine it with some shopping and café culture by adding on a city break.

How our family cycling holidays are graded

For our family cycling holidays we have selected areas with flat terrain so that the cycling is generally easy (see our grading system below), although some holidays cover greater distances than others. There are no age restrictions; you know what your children are capable of.
  • Easy cycling for all with shorter days mainly on the flat, but some gentle ascents.
  • Easy-to-moderate cycling featuring undulating routes with more frequent short ascents, and a mix of shorter and longer days.
  • Moderate cycling with some longer, steady uphill sections, and longer days.
  • Fairly strenuous cycling featuring longer days with some sustained climbs.

Family cycling holidays, Inntravel style

There are key ingredients to our family cycling breaks (and, in fact, all Inntravel holidays): attractive scenery; carefully selected accommodation where you’ll find a friendly welcome; and regional cuisine.
