Frequently asked questions

  • What biking level is the National Parks of Dalmatia tour?

    The cycle routes require a basic level of fitness, which you should have acquired by occasional or daily cycling.

    The daily routes from 15 to 31 mi./25 to 50 km cover hilly terrain and can be completed without time constraints. You will also come across some rather steep climbs, where walking with your bike is of course permitted.

  • How large is the group on board?

    The size of the group depends on the barge scheduled on the tour. The capacity of the barges varies between 12 and 26 participants.

  • What is the average age of the participants?

    The ages vary between 35 and 75, but of course we have younger and older guests. During school vacations there are more children on board.

  • What insurances does Cycletours offer?

    Cancellation insurance (insurance company Unigarant)
    Holidays usually are reserved and paid weeks or even months in advance. If you need to cancel or abort the tour, that always leaves you with financial consequences. Therefore we recommend to arrange a cancellation insurance. This insurance reimburse cancellation costs due to a serious impediment such as an accident, illness or death of relatives in the 1st or 2nd degree.
    Cancellation insurance including  air flight:
    when paying 1% extra over the travel sum of your Bike & Barge tour + flight ticket, then the cancellation expense is insured should you need to cancel or should one of these components unexpectedly be cancelled. This on the condition that no alternative arrangement can be made, so the trip cannot be taken.

  • What packing list do you suggest?

    What you need to bring with you on the Bike & Barge tours starting and/or ending in the Netherlands and along the Mosel & Saar:

    Specialised cycle clothing may be handy but not strictly necessary. What you do need (among other things) is the following:
    •    shorts/ long trousers/ track suit/ legging
