After breakfast it is time to disembark. You then make your own journey home or use the transfer to the airport.
The bike routes require a basic level of fitness, which you should have if you cycle on a regular basis. The routes can reach an altitude of about 100 – 300 metres. The daily routes cover a distance of about 20 to 35 km and do go across hilly and mountainous terrain. There is no time pressure for this though. Sometimes there are much steeper ascents and of course, it is allowed to push the bike.
The roads are mostly asphalted and there is little traffic outside of holiday-periods. Decide on your own if you want to cycle self-guided with maps and information material or with a tour guide. It is compulsory to wear a helmet if you are under the age of 18.
