Cycling spectacular mountains, lakes and exquisite countryside of Switzerland

In Switzerland you will ride through breathtakingly beautiful landscapes. With spectacular mountains, lakes and exquisite countryside, Switzerland is a feast for both your eyes and legs.  The Lucerne Bike Trip is in one of the great European cities to discover and explore. You’ll be charmed by Lucerne’s sense of history and tradition, the misty lake at its doorstep and the snow-capped Mt Pilatus rising above and then there are the evenings to perfectly end your cycling day in style…

Lucerne Bike Trip

This 5 day Swiss Bike Tour accomplishes so much in such a short space of time, with tailored bike routes that have to be experienced to be believed. Pristine roads following the contours of picture postcard Lake Lucerne the bike rolling as if it’s on the famous Swiss Rail system… perfect. Maybe a challenge of some of Switzerland’s highest mountain road passes, possibly the Susten (2224m) or the lesser known Glaubenberg (1543m). Your preferred choice of bike routes or cycling abilities are all taken into consideration in the impeccable class and service of Practice Bicycle Bike Tours on the Lucerne bike trip.

I'd like to write a short note of thanks following our recent trip with Practice Bicycle Tours. We spent 10 days cycling in the French Alps followed by 5 days in the Swiss Alps. This was one of the best holidays we have had for a long time! The professional manner in which our trip was managed by Bridget and Paul meant we didn't have to worry about any detail of our holiday in Europe. And as busy working people, that is what we consider a real break.
Fantastic memories of the Sustenpass trip with the Bratwurst stop. This tour will not be forgotten for a very long time, it was impressive.
Look forward to Practicebicycle with you again.
