Bike tours

Mountain bike excursions accompanied by a professional bike guide."Easy-going", "Active and high-energy", "Active lite": the mountain bike tours in the EUROPA 2's shore excursion programme offer something for everyone. 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 a challenging ride over uneven terrain that frequently includes hills and inclines. The Hardtail mountain bikes, designed especially for the EUROPA 2 and featuring SLX/XT technology, are available in various sizes. All tours last four to five hours and have a group size of maximum 14 people. You will be given personal advice from the bike guide, with whom you can book the tour you want after a fitness check (in selected ports/based on local conditions).

You are welcome to bring your own bike clothing with you. On board, we will provide you with a bike helmet and a sports rucksack, as well as a bottle of water and an energy bar.
