There are many wonderful places in the World in which to ride a bicycle. And whilst our company has  its origins cycling in the Pyrenees (hence our name), PyrActif now offers high quality cycling holidays and iconic rides in a whole host of those wonderful places.

The Spanish Sierras - where the pros head South to for the Winter
If your appetite is for a Winter training / riding environment offering a huge variety of roads, one of the driest & mildest micro-climates in Europe and all set to a magnificent mountain backdrop amidst citrus, olive & almond groves then our Spanish options may be just what you're looking for. Numerous pro teams base themselves here during the (Northern hemisphere) Winter months - and with good reason; the riding is superb. For more details head to this link.

The Italian Dolomites - la bella Italia
Passo Stelvio, Passo Mortirolo, Selle Ronda - names which have charmed and inspired (and terrified) generations of cyclists. These are just a few of the great rides of Italy'sspectacular Dolomites mountain range. Steeped in Giro d'Italia tradition & offering some of the toughest riding challenges in Europe, you can ride these (and many more) legendary climbs on our Giro Dolomiti trips. Head here to to find out more.

Holland & Belgium – Classics country
Where else would a hardened cycling fan want to be during April ? With the focus of the pro-cycling world very firmly on Flanders, Roubaix and the Ardennes, our Spring Classics options give you the chance to witness some of the greatest racing of the year. Combining both riding & spectating, we’ll put you right at the heart of the action. Test your strength on the infamous bergs, the leg-sapping cobbles & the ‘killer côtes’ like the Muur de Huy. Then grab a relaxing beer and watch as the pros tackle the same obstacles at roughly twice the speed! For all of the details, click here  – if you dare!

UK, Ireland, Germany, Switzerland & Austria
Through our ‘Bespoke’ programme we’ve helped riders explore and enjoy many other of the “wonderful places” to ride. So, if a length-of-the-UK ‘Land’s End – John O’Groats’ ride, or the rolling hills of Ireland or the majesty of the Alps are on your ‘to be ridden’ list and you’d like us to help with the planning and/or delivery of your trip, then drop us a line and let us know what you have in mind.

We welcome everyone from solo riders to large group/club parties. Larger groups can benefit from our Group Discount deals (see 'Calendar & Prices' page).
