A bike and boat cycling holiday along the beautiful Moselle and Saar rivers. Disembark each day for pleasant riverside cycle rides through the picturesque Moselle Valley. Visit atmospheric medieval villages and towns , steeped in history and viticulture such as Cochem, Traben-Trarbach, Bernkastel Kues and Trier.
The MS Olympia will be your floating hotel for the week and offers small but comfortable cabins, a sun deck as well as a pleasant lounge bar and restaurant. Daily rides lead you along the beautiful Moselle Valley on well-maintained cycle paths to historic towns and villages in Germany’s most famous wine-growing region. Of course, there will also be plenty of opportunities to sample the fine Moselle wines during this highly enjoyable cycling holiday.
Highlights include the charming wine villages of Cochem, Beilstein, Traben-Trarbach and Bernkastel-Kues. The steep, cascading terraces of vineyards descending to the water’s edge along much of the route are also memorable and of course the simple pleasure of enjoying carefree cycling on scenic, riverside cycle paths.
The cycle rides on this trip are very easy-going and cover around 25 miles per day. There are hardly any hills and the vast majority of the riding will be on smooth, paved, riverside cycle paths. If you don’t fancy pedalling one day, you can always stay on-board and let the boat carry you past the majestic scenery to the next night’s stop.
