High Road to Lhasa

We had a wondeful time in Tibet. Our Tour Leaders did a fantastic job and greatly enhanced our experience. We also felt very safe in the hands of the various drivers that we had throughout the trip.

Sweden: Land of Lakes and Castles

In central Sweden’s heartland lies Stockholm, the nation’s capital city spread across 14 islands, each providing a different perspective of the city. Not too far southwest of the capital is a different world, where royal palaces and castles are interspersed with pine forests, open green fields and vast lakes. Exploring this region by bike ensures a full immersion in the subtle landscapes of its archipelago and beyond. With a relaxed pace there is ample time to swim in the refreshing Baltic waters, hike trails in manor house grounds and visit towns of pretty wooden houses. Concluding in Stockholm, enjoy the city at handlebar level and gain an insight into its unique topography.
