Explore Europe by bike with Scenic

As we find ourselves in the midst of cycling fever from this year’s Tour de France, Scenic guests can get into the cycling spirit and take advantage of the 30 e-bikes on board each Scenic Space-Ship throughout Europe and France.

With an increasing number of cycling options throughout Scenic’s Freechoice program plus 27 self guided cycling tours on offer through Scenic’s exclusive Tailormade device, guests can now see more of Europe’s hidden wonders on two wheels.

Jump aboard an e-bike for a three-hour guided cycle along the Danube from Melk to Dürnstein, passing numerous quaint villages and picture perfect vineyards on the way. Over 30 kilometres guests will traverse cobblestone streets, dirt tracks and paved roads fit for the adventurous spirit.

Uncover some of France’s most enchanting sights during a Scenic Freechoice bike ride from Tournon to Glun. Cycle with a local guide along the popular Via Rhona cycle path towards Glun, taking in the magnificent French alps and cycling through quaint riverside villages along the banks of the Rhone River. This energetic 20km round trip is the perfect afternoon activity to explore a little further afield and make the most of your French adventure with Scenic.

Tiffany Watters, Scenic’s Journey Designer for Europe, commented “Our guests absolutely love the range of guided and self-guided cycling activities that we offer on our river cruises which mean they get to make the most of each destination and at their own pace. Taking off on the back of an e-bike is especially popular in France where we dock each night in the heart of the riverside towns and villages such as Lyon and Bordeaux – making for a perfect base from which to explore the area."

“We have definitely seen an increase in the popularity of cycling in recent years, with many guests looking for more active options. In some locations such as Melk/Dürnstein we even have to hire additional bikes on the ground to cope with the demand.”
