1. Bavarian Lakes, Germany
You say: “What impressed us was how varied the scenery was during each day, from woods, forest paths and Alpine meadows, to lovely towns, villages, river banks and lakes. We were never bored!” Lucinda, London, UK

2. Austrian Lakes, Austria
We say: The region surrounding stunning Salzburg is a paradise for lovers of the great outdoors. Days on the bike are spent weaving through idyllic countryside, with plenty of opportunity to take a dip in one of the many crystal clear lakes.

3. Lake Constance, Germany, Austria and Switzerland
You say: “This was a great family holiday, the children both really enjoyed themselves, especially the swimming in the lake! We’re already looking at other trips” Becky, Bristol, UK

4. Magical Lake Bled, Slovenia
We say: Backed by the Julian Alps and home to a host of fairytale-like gorges, Bled provides a picturesque setting for a centre-based holiday! Plenty of off the bike fun also awaits, from rowing on the lake to bathing in thermal springs.
