This tour is a guided group tour. The day-tours average of 25 mi./40 km and take you through mainly hilly and mountainous terrain and will be completed without any time-constraints. Almost all of the cycling days start at sea level, this commonly results in an uphill start to the tour. There are also some extended climbs where walking your bicycle is, of course, permitted. Most of the roads are asphalted and rarely frequented. Your tour guide informs you each day about the tour details and physical requirements. You are free to set aside a half or full day to swim or spend time on board the boat, instead of taking a planned cycle tour. Tours are dependent on weather conditions and the final decision is that of the captain.

Note that on the standard departure dates, this tour also has an MTB version that takes place on the same ship.  One guide leads the hybrid cyclists while the other guide takes care of the MTB group.
