VBT Bicycling Vacations


Base-camp-style cycling is VBT's modus operandi: A small number of hotels serve as trip anchors (15th-century French chateaus, Canadian Rockies lodges), and clients choose their daily mileage (10, 25, 40). Costa Rica, Italy, Spain, and Croatia are among the most popular destinations, but the company also excels in North America and the rest of Europe.
