For many the history and culture you encounter while travelling is the main reason to hit the road and discover new places. No matter if you’re in a bustling city centre, or way out in a tiny village well off the beaten path, there is always culture to be found and histories to explore. Cultural and historical cycling tours may feature multi-activity days, may be anything from difficult to easy in their nature, may be set in an urban environment or the top of a mountain; anything is possible when seeking culture and history.
Like most things, Cultural and Historical cycling tours are influenced heavily by the geography of the landscape and how the people have integrated into that landscape. Urban culture and history rides will see you weaving your way through the city streets and back alleys looking for temples, markets, museums, and sites of cultural significance. Feel free to indulge in a cultural experience of gastronomical proportions as you wine and dine your way through the countryside, the cities, and everything in between. For the more adventurous culture seekers, some tours will take you to the nether regions in search of a lost temple or a religious relic.
Culture and history tours are not bound by conventional distances and can be both incredibly diverse and variable in nature and in scale. They can encompass anything from beginner level museum and gallery tours to multi-day expedition type riding. The culture is what’s said to stick with the traveller the longest once the trip is over, so take your time, whenever possible, and soak up as much of it as you can. Take the long route to that backroad archeological site, or put in the effort to climb that hill to the monastery, or just meander the city streets in search of history; we know you won’t regret it.
