A combined bus and cycling tour gives you the opportunity to experience the highlights of both islands in a relatively short time frame. You’ll need to be moderately fit to cycle distances between 30 and 60 km (18.6 and 37.2 mi) daily, but you’re welcome to ride in the support vehicle whenever you wish.
