Lake Constance Family Cycling Holiday

Lake Constance Family Cycling Holiday.

On this Lake Constance Family Cycling Holiday, you will cycle round the eastern part of the lake, known as the Upper Lake. At Bregenz you are very close to the Alps! The most well-known Lake Constance towns are on your path: Constance, Meersburg, Friedrichshafen, Lindau, Bregenz and Arbon all bid you welcome. Always close to the lake and the mountains as your backdrop, the Lake Constance Family Cycling Holiday is an enjoyable and relaxing cycling tour. This tour includes admission to many children-friendly attractions so that there’s no way they can get bored on the trip. As the cycle path between Immenstaad and Friedrichshafen is along the main road, you tackle this part by boat. Level ground along mostly paved cycle paths, sometimes right along the bank, sometimes along lake-side roads. This cycle tour of the Upper Lake is very well suited to families with children.

Your Accommodation

Where you rest your head after an active day is hugely important to us. We go to great lengths to find properties that are unique expressions of the region you are travelling through. Think of them as the charming and intimate garnish atop your trip. 

Whether nestled in the heart of a village or lost in the countryside and surrounded by nature, all accommodations are chosen using a strict criteria of comforthospitality, and authentic charm. We like to use locally run independent small hotels, guest houses and B&Bs instead of the larger “chain” hotels.  All of them are hand-picked, visited, and re-visited by our local partners. On most of our holidays you will be staying in different hotels and their  uniqueness and individual character only adds to the enjoyment of your holiday. You will also benifit with knowledge that your trip is contributing to local economies, and supporting local family run businesses.

You will be welcomed in a double or twin room (2 beds) – based on double occupancy.
All of our rooms have private bathrooms.
Individual rooms are possible upon request when you book; they are subject to availability and incur a supplemental fee.
For biking trips, all of our inns have a safe place to keep bicycles for the night
