The newest adventures in our collection for 2013
Following the popularity of our London Stadia Trekathon this year we have designed some NEW 26-mile circular City Walks. Taking place in some of our most exciting European capitals - Paris, Amsterdam and Barcelona…
Barcelona City Trekathon
4 - 6 October 2013 (Trekathon on 5th)
There is no better way to see this city than on foot. Our route will pass many of Gaudi’s works as we walk through the quaint streets of the old quarter, through the wooded, shady Collserola Hills, containing the city’s highest peak (500m) and down along impressive boulevards including Las Ramblas. With parks, churches and the famous cathedrals of Tibidabo and Sagrada Familia there is plenty to admire. We pass the famous Camp Nou Football Stadium as well as the Olympic Stadium used in 1992.

Amsterdam City Trekathon
9 – 11 August 2013 (Trekathon on 10th)
This small capital is an absolute gem to walk with canals radiating out in concentric rings and little footbridges linking everything together. We take a Friday night Eurostar and head straight for our hotel in central Amsterdam, where we start our Trekathon in the early morning. We take in all the city has to offer including Anne Frank’s House, past fine museums and galleries, the De Gooyer Windmill and see the floating flower markets. On Sunday you are free to explore further, if your aching limbs allow, before we set off for the Eurostar home.

Journey from Italy’s east to west coast on what must be one of Europe’s most picturesque cycling adventures - from romantic Venice to the country’s oldest seaport, Genoa.
