EUROPA 2: New Mountain Bike Tours with Guide

  • EUROPA 2 to offer bike guide and 14 on-board mountain bikes
  • Bike tours for all levels in selected ports around the world

Due to great demand, the EUROPA 2, has created a new offering: mountain bike excursions with a dedicated bike guide. Guests can discover the surroundings of select ports in the company of a guide while using the ships’ own mountain bikes. Guests can opt for an easy tour at a comfortable speed, or a more fast-paced off-road experience over rougher terrain.

“Easy-going”, “Active and high-energy”, and “Active lite” are the three offerings with the new mountain bike tours on the EUROPA 2. Beginners can enjoy the scenery and take in points of interest during a leisurely ride on a flat route. By contrast, experienced cyclists have the opportunity to take part in challenging rides over uneven terrain that frequently includes hills and inclines. The 14 hardtail mountain bikes are available in various sizes. All tours are between 4-5 hours in length and cost €59. Tours will be offered in selected ports based on the local conditions. The bike guide will provide personal advice and be part of all bike excursions. Guests will be able to book a bike tour after a quick fitness check on-board.
