Blue Marble Travel

Unusual Trips for Exceptional People, since 1986. The best way to move through life is on a bicycle!

Blue Marble’s trips are different from those operated by luxury operators. For starters, they are half the price.  But, more importantly, they are loosely-structured, individualistic trips, designed to let you travel amongst the people who live in the country you are visiting, and as they do.  The other riders on your trip provide as much company as you desire:  they (you) form a diverse, interesting bunch. 

But you are no more a part of a collective than you want to be:  you are free to go off on your own at all times, even for meals included as part of your trip.  And your fellow travellers do not replace contact with the people who live in the places to which you journey.

Which brings us back to price:  we travel at an economic level in keeping with the one you observe around you.  We shun the palaces and private coaches that isolate you from the people who live in the local village.  If the only “local” in a hotel is the maitre d’, it is not a hotel we use.  No doubt as a result, our trips are peopled by curious, easy-going travellers:  fun, relaxed, and open to their surroundings.  You!
