About Us

We think cycle touring is the ideal way to travel in Europe and that is why we are very pleased to launch European Bike Adventures, as it allows us the opportunity to offer a whole new set of experiences to people we know will appreciate them.

Accordingly we have taken our time in selecting the portfolio of cycle tours you find listed here. A selection of hand-picked bike trips in spectacular places throughout Europe that focus on fun with the same attention to detail and quality that hundreds of our very satisfied clients have been enjoying with Ibero Cycle Tours since 1999.

If any questions arise while browsing the tours, please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to inform and help you decide on your next European Bike Adventure.
