Bike Odyssey

Bike Odyssey specialises in running journeys of a lifetime

They only tour in exceptional corners of the world and only create exceptional routes. They only follow exceptional history. Unsurprisingly, their tours are exceptional. They love them and you will too.

Every bike touring company claims to be unique. To be honest, it gets a little boring when everyone claims their guides are the best, their routes are the best, their hotels are the best, their food and wine is the best and you guessed it their bikes are the best!

We have consistently tried to look at every aspect of bike touring and take the best (yes that word again!) from it and then add a little more. We feel that because we are a combination of bike guides, documentary makers, historians, computer scientists, designers and travellers we often get a different and slightly better angle for our trips.

Among obviously having the ‘best’ of everything, there are 5 key things which we feel make Bike Odyssey stand out from the bike tour crowd. These are luxury with challenge, history, guides, technology and bikes.
