About VBT Bicycling and Walking Vacations

Welcome to VBT Bicycling and Walking Vacations, the leader in worldwide active vacations at unsurpassed value. There’s simply no better way to really experience the destination of your dreams. As you move along at your own comfortable pace, you can view the silver leaves of an olive grove up close … feel the warmth of the sun on your skin … inhale the scent of wildflowers on a breeze … listen to the trill of birds in the trees… and nod a friendly hello to locals on their way to work and school. Plus, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that you’re exploring the world in the most environmentally friendly manner.

Best of all, when you travel with VBT, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you’re in the hands of experts. With 43 years of leadership in U.S. and international deluxe active vacations, we can take care of all the arrangements for you—while also bringing you the very best values, guaranteed.

We’re also deeply committed to offering you exceptional quality. Our itineraries and routes have been perfected over the years. And when the day is done, we’ll pamper you with accommodations as grand as the vistas that surround them.

We also ensure that you won’t just bike, walk or ski through your destination—you’ll experience local life firsthand, through exclusive discovery events we’ve built into every trip. Experienced Trip Leaders, expert in your destination, will accompany you throughout your journey, to make sure you enjoy a true insider’s perspective all along the way.

VBT active vacations are for all levels of ability.

Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway, a family vacation, a solo adventure, or an athletic challenge in an exotic setting, we have the trip that’s right for you. All VBT vacations are rated from Easy to Advanced, so you can quickly identify the level you’re comfortable with—plus we build optional extra loops into every trip for those who are looking for more of a challenge. Our full van support means you have the freedom to decide when you’re ready for a lift to the next village or back to your hotel. We even offer affordable pre- and post-trip extensions, to allow you to stretch the value of your travel dollar and see even more of the region you’ve traveled so far to explore.

It’s all part of our commitment to making sure your VBT Bicycling, Walking or Skiing Vacation is the best vacation you will ever take.
