Rhône River Cruise Biking, from US$7,995 (8 days/7 nights)
Adding to the portfolio with Uniworld River Cruises, travellers will float along the Rhône from Provence to Burgundy taking in two iconic French regions.

Camino de Santiago Biking, from US$3,795 (6 days/5 nights)
Take in the portion of this historic journey from León to Santiago de Compostela, passing through landscapes unchanged since the time of the first pilgrims, stopping in ancient villages, and making your way along paths that have been trodden by millions of dedicated feet. Only yours will be in cleats.
Provence Rhône Biking, from US$5,295 (6 days/5 nights)
This Provençal journey begins in the natural reserve of Camargue where you’ll be surrounded by vast plains and lagoons. Continue through Provence to explore the vines in Beaucaire, visit the most well preserved Roman bridge in France and dine on delicious local fare.
Bavarian Lakes Walking, from US$4,995 (6 days/5 nights)
Stroll through this picture-perfect part of Germany, and take in the sweeping Berchtesgaden Alps, sparkling lakes and charming timbered houses.
Tuscany E-Biking, from US$5,295 (6 days/5 nights)
Hilltop vineyards, charming villages, lush vistas. Tap your e-bike at the first hint of fatigue and feel the wheels practically turning themselves. With lush rolling hills, medieval towns and meandering roads keeping it all together, Tuscany is a biker’s idyll.
The five new trips join a roster of longstanding favourites, including Italian Lakes Walking, Berlin to Dresden Biking, Tuscany & Umbria Walking and Puglia Biking.
