Who we are
The journey is the reward.
This is especially true for a leisure cycling holiday when regional and culinary highlights can be explored at your own pace and close to the action. Every time you push the pedal, everyday life moves a little further away and activity turns into relaxation.
Velontour knows the best destinations for cycling tours in Austria, Germany, Italy and Switzerland. We provide bicycle enthusiasts with comprehensive information on exciting cycle tracks, high-quality accommodation and quality-tested tour operators. This is the first platform where everything revolves around the topic of leisure cycling holidays and regional cuisine.
Shift down or up a few gears on holiday – it’s up to you. In any case, the momentum comes from Velontour and ensures that the many impressions created while riding your bike turn into lasting memories.
Enjoy your next leisure cycling holiday!
