Four days in France's lavender fields of Provence or the châteaux-dotted valleys of Loire. A week exploring the sun-kissed coasts and lakes of Italy. Seeing Morocco or Galápagos as few have. DuVine Cycling + Adventure Co. blends all-day bike rides — curated for novices and pros — with the very best of food, wine and luxury resorts, auberges and retreats. Customized trips include daily 13- to 20-mile rides through scenic routes on and off the beaten track, affording you true insider views to a destination, lead by a seasoned guide who knows the landscape and culture. Every day features a one-of-a-kind breakfast, lunch and dinner at local farms and the most interesting restaurants, and now celebrated chefs are even going along on some tours, using local seasonal fare for truly personalized experiences. Sore muscles and tensions ease at either natural springs or spas — all booked in advance by DuVine's team. Trips can be booked in almost 20 countries in Europe, Africa and North and South America, for two, for families or for as many as 14.
