A large majority of the bike tours listed on cycletoursglobal.com are in well known countries and locations - and for good reason. They are generally very accessible and have good cycling and general infrastructure with travel logistics being relatively straightforward.

However there are tours in most corners of the world - and it is often in some of the less popular and less visited locations that the best experiences can be had. The reasons may be the exact opposite to those of popular areas, and may include being:

  • Not overrun with tourists
  • A local experience with more authentic interactions
  • Remote or off the beaten track
  • Supportive of opportunity or resource-poor communities
  • More environmentally and economically sustainable
  • A unique experience
  • Bragging rights!

That being said, there are many hidden and not-so-hidden pockets in much loved regions of Europe, North America and Asia in which you can have peaceful, local and unique experience too! Or check out the map and browse a country you may not have considered before.

That's the beauty of cycling and using a bike to explore the world - there is something for everyone, everywhere!
