A sporty tour around Lake Constance

If you are partial toward some physical activity, this tour is perfect for you. Whilst cycling is at the core of this holiday, there will still be enough time to go swimming, shopping or sightseeing. For most of the tour, you will be cycling along the lake's shore and there are several opportunities for a spontaneous break, whether to look around or to relax. In the evenings you can expect a heart welcome from local beer gardens and wine bars, or simply a nice little spot by the lake.
