a Bicycle Tour Vacation

It seems green is everywhere in the media and with good reason; environmentally friendly travel is not only good for the environment - it’s good for the individual too. DuVine bicycle tour vacations are the perfect blend of elegance, adventure and eco friendly travel all wrapped up into one beautiful experience.

Unlike some eco-friendly travel clubs, DuVine understands comfort and convenience are still important even on a bicycle tour vacation. Every detail of our bicycle tours are planned well in advance allowing participants to concentrate on the scenery and sheer relaxation. Here are a few other tips for taking a green vacation:

1. Go digital. Use a digital camera to capture the beauty. Leave the wildlife and natural resources alone.

2. Conserve energy. Bicycles are one of the most environmentally friendly products on earth and the great outdoors require nothing more than free sunshine and fresh air. Make the most of the trip by purchasing re-usable water filter cups and other low impact solutions.

3. Don't purchase souvenirs from old-growth forests or other hard to replace natural resources. Promote sustainability when traveling by buying responsibly.

4. Consume locally. One of the major benefits of a bicycle tour vacation is the ability to get up close and personal. Few things are more exciting than partaking of the traditional foods, local cuisine and other unique culture of the area.

See the world as it was meant to be and leave it just as pristine for the next generation while enjoying a bicycle trip to remember!

How to Select the Perfect Family Bike Tour

Family bicycle vacations in Europe are a great way to spend quality time with the kids, have fun and relax. But perhaps you are having trouble deciding on the type of bike tour that will suit your family best. Don't worry - we have you covered. Use these quick and easy steps to select the perfect bike tour for your family.

 1. Educational: Immerse your family in the customs, sights and sounds of the local culture. Use the family bike tour as a way to practice a foreign language, and make learning come alive for younger children as you explore Europe by bicycle.

2. Adventure: Have a pack of wild teens that never sit still? Want to spend some quality time with your adult children? Make this a family vacation they will remember. From whitewater rafting down the Mendoza River to the French Alps Legends tour, DuVine provides as much adventure as you desire.

3. Heritage: Explore your family roots and ancestry by taking a DuVine family bike tour through Spain, France, Argentina, Chile and other destinations around the world.

Making Memories: Family Bicycle Tours

Research recently conducted by a UK group found working parents spend less than 20 minutes per day with their children. Even if your situation isn't quite that dire, chances are you still could enjoy more quality time as a family. After all, they grow up fast.

 DuVine family bicycle tours were created just for families; filled with adventure yet safe enough for the little ones in your group, it is a trip everyone will love and remember for years to come. Whether taking a family bicycle tour in Europe or a short domestic trip, here’s what your kids can look forward to:

1. Beautiful Photographs: Kids love cameras. Combine that with their unique way of seeing the world and you might be surprised how much you learn about their dreams and aspirations. Before the bike trip begins, buy a digital camera and journal for each family member to record thoughts, feelings and inspirations along the way. It is sure to be an instant family heirloom!

2. Souvenir Swap: Set aside a specific amount for souvenirs along the way— with the caveat that each person must give something special to another family member to commemorate the trip.

3. History: Allow your children to immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of the trip. Before the trip rent a few movies or watch a show about the local history, foods, customs and cultures. It will be even more exciting to try it in "real life" and they won't even know it's educational!

4. Tales & Together Time: Brush up on a few good bed-time stories to read together as a family after dinner and leave the business behind.

Redefining Retirement

The Baby Boom generation is redefining retirement. Gone are the days when a gold watch signified thirty years of service to a company followed by endless days of Shuffleboard and golf. Today’s Boomers are actively pursuing the destinations and dreams unavailable during their working years.
