With boat-based itineraries consistently ranking among its most popular trips year after year, European active holiday specialist UTracks has announced a series of new additions for summer 2020, from the meandering rivers of Burgundy to the lesser-known Saronic Islands in Greece…

Burgundy Bike and Barge NEW FOR 2020

Travel by barge along meandering rivers, past scenic vineyards and through serene countryside and see for yourself why Burgundy is often referred to as ‘The Land of Good Living’. As you cycle each day you will soak up the beauty of the region, while sampling some of the best ciders, cheeses, honey and of course wines – after all, Burgundy has the highest number of ‘appellations d’origine contrôlée’ in France!

Tuscany Bike and Sail NEW FOR 2020

A new journey on a resplendent tall ship to discover the islands of Elba and Giglio and the dramatic Tuscany coastline, with daily cycles to explore quintessential Italian sights and enjoy a slice of ‘dolce vita’. As you ride your bicycle between ports, encounter cypress trees, vineyards and olive trees spreading across the rolling hills; picturesque medieval towns with small cobbled streets; and remote bays that beckon for a swim in the glistening Mediterranean blue waters.
