Spanish Camino by Bike: Leon to Santiago Tour Reviews

"The trip was challenging as expected. Overall I really enjoyed this trip. The scenery, culture, food and people were awesome. Really quite spectacular!"

D. Jones | Burnaby, BC, Canada

"This cycling trip was more demanding than we expected but the Galician portion of it goes through some very pretty country, worth the effort. The lodging and meals were well-chosen and better than we expected. The trail is very easy to follow but the supporting documentation was well-prepared and comprehensive. A moving experience to arrive in Santiago with all the other "pilgrims"."

Spanish Camino by Bike: the Pyrenees to Leon  Tour Reviews

"I needed to organize a b-spoke trip of the Camino de Santiago since I wanted to use my own bike for the trip. Fortunately, I came across the services of UTracks. They listened to my special needs and designed a 2 week trip for me that was perfect ! The hotels and B&B’s were very comforting, well located and were always ready to secure my bike and offer help for any special requests. Riding the Camino is magical ! Thanks UTracks for helping make this a wonderful experience!"

The Full Portuguese Way Cycle Tour Review

"I had a great time, it was a well planned ride, the daily distances left time for both exploration and relaxation. The route itself is has some interesting quirks. The accommodation was first rate, the truly fabulous Casa da Alaçova in Santarém was a highlight. All in all, a great ride; short in km, long in experiences."

Portuguese Way Cycle: Porto to Santiago Tour Review

"The Portugal ride was much more challenging and hilly than the Cycle Amsterdam to Paris trip, even though the distances each day were much less. The route follows the Portuguese Caminho (Portugal spelling) and there are some parts where you need to take a different route to avoid rocky steep tracks of the Caminho which can be difficult to find. It is a magnificent ride and the added spirit of being on a Caminho engenders camaraderie with the pilgrims walking the Caminho. "Bom Caminho" is often heard. The people are very friendly and the accommodation was excellent."

Cycle Italy's Via Francigena

Cycle the Via Francigena: Siena to Rome Tour Review

"This is not a trip for the feint hearted. You need to be extremely fit and confident travelling on roads with high speed traffic and off-road on steep hills with all sorts of surfaces. On the positive side, it is a fantastic way to see this part if Italy. There is plenty of variety in the countryside and beautiful towns along the route. We enjoyed the different accommodation which was all comfortable."
