Slovenia & Italy Biking – Luxe

Slovenia and Italy are the perfect pairing of countries to combine into one exhilarating bike tour. What’s to like? Slovenia is bordered by Italy, Hungary, Austria and Croatia and has been influenced in its cuisine, art and culture. The country is small with dramatic scenery, quiet roads to bike and some wonderful hotels. Starting in Ljubljana, you will have a full day to see the many sites of this city, with its Old World Plazas, baroque churches and dramatic castles. Then Bled, with its wondrous turquoise lake, and island monastery, and divine cycling, some along new dedicated bike paths that wind majestically through bucolic countryside and past aqua-marine lakes.

Thailand and Laos Biking

Offering perhaps the best cycling in southeast Asia, northern Thailand features magnificent natural scenery and a fusion of cultures where tribal groups still live traditionally. Monasteries, temples and monuments from kingdoms past are numerous and a multitude of rivers, including the mighty Mae Nam Khong (Mekong) make for perfect companions and lodging settings. For the epicurean, the food is, well, sensational and if you haven’t yet enjoyed Thai massage, here is your chance to be pampered. Enjoy.

Tour de France Alps Biking 2019

The Tour de France will be celebrating its centenary in 2019 - the first was held in 1919. Great Explorations will be back at the Tour in 2019 and eagerly awaits the chase for the yellow jersey. For us, going to the Tour has been as much about our ride as watching the pros. Nothing can match riding on closed roads lined with thousands of fans, over hors categorie cols, joining in the festivities of the race. Team Sky will be an obvious favourite, but anything can happen at the Tour de France. Finishing in Paris, staying in the same hotel as the pros will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Tuscany Biking – Classic

Tuscany is deservedly world-renowned for having the many elements that make for an enriching travel experience. Traveling by bicycle allows us to enjoy the subtler aspects of this region, off of the ‘touristed’ main routes into the heart that is Italy. Is this among the the most beautiful regions on earth? We think so. On our Classic trip, we stay in a combination of distinctive hotels, charming agriturismos and comfortable inns (except for Siena, all with fabulous swimming pools) and hosts that will welcome you with open arms. Enjoy!
