Cycle through the 5 countries of Britain and Ireland in one highlight-packed bike tour. Over 13 days, you’ll ride 750 km, experiencing the variety of cultures on these two amazing islands. This unique itinerary provides the amazing opportunity to cycle through some of the most exciting regions of England, Wales, Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland.
We start in England’s Yorkshire Dales National Park, where our route heads south into Lancashire. Then we cross the border into Wales and ride through Snowdonia National Park before hitting the historic coast. A short hop by boat leads to the Isle of Anglesey and from there across the Irish Sea to Ireland and Dublin for a day of rest in one of Europe’s greatest capitals.
We then head west within Ireland, exploring the roads of County Donegal before crossing into Northern Ireland. Here we follow the spectacular Antrim Coast (some say the best stretch of coastline in Ireland) past the remarkable geological formation, the Giant’s Causeway.
Then from Northern Ireland, it’s a boat journey to our final country – Scotland. Here we ride through Dumfries and Galloway on rolling roads. Rolling farmlands, green hills and gentle coastlines provide the background to the end of our journey. Our final day passes through Keir Mill where the pedal bicycle was invented back in 1839 before rolling into the 17th century Drumlanrig Castle – a majestic end to our memorable tour of all 5 countries of Britain and Ireland.
