Holiday Information

Explore Lake Constance on this self-guided family cycling holiday designed for those looking to ride at a leisurely pace. This is a cycling classic taking in three countries in the heart of Europe; Austria, Switzerland & Germany - each of which add their own special mark to this idyllic region.
Lake Constance enjoys a mild climate and plenty of sunshine making it a great summer cycling destination. You'll be following the sandy shores of the lake and winding through the many vineyards and orchards that stretch down to the water's edge.
The cycling mainly follows a mixture of flat, traffic-free cyclepaths and roadside cycling lanes around the edge of the Lake, making it perfect for those looking for a relaxed holiday with time to take in the various highlights of the region; the UNESCO world heritage site of the Island of Reichenau, the quaint fishing villages on the Swiss shores of the lake and the larger historic towns of Constance and Friedrichshafen all contribute to making this a holiday not to be missed.
If you would like to do a similar route with a few extra miles, take a look at the self-guided leisure cycling version of this holiday where you may find the information more relevant to your needs.

Is this holiday suitable for your family?

This trip is designed for families who cycle regularly and are looking to enjoy more on a family cycling holiday. The trip is place to place, so your children must be able to cycle the distances stated on the trip notes, however the terrain throughout is mostly flat. There are plenty of other activities to look out for during the day’s cycle, with places of interest to take a break and keep the children entertained to break up the cycling. Emergency backup is available from the local team, but it’s best if you‘re happy and comfortable fixing common issues like punctures.
