UK Cycling & Walking Holidays

Based in Derbyshire, Peak Tours is the Peak District's leading cycling and walking tours company. As well as Peak District Holidays we also specialise in a range of fully supported cycle tours such as Lands End to John o'Groats, Dover to Cape Wrath, Coast to Coast and the Way of the Roses cycling holidays in the UK. New for 2014 we now offer an exiting new cycling holiday in Germany and Austria.


Peak District Cycle Tours

If you would like a cycle tour of the Peak District we have a range of tours to choose from. Tours are from 2 – 7 days and stay in carefully selected family run B&B’s and country inns oozing with character. Routes are carefully planned to take you along quiet country lanes to the many picturesque villages and places of interest.

Peak District Walking Tours

Peak Tours also offers a range of superb walking tours which take you along some of the best walking trails in the country. On all tours you will pass some fine country pubs and travel along carefully planned routes which take you through the Peak District's most pleasant and spectacular scenery only accessible by taking to two feet.

John O'Groats

Lands End to John O'Groats Tours

We offer a fully supported two week cycle tour from Lands End to John O'Groats. Cycling on average 71 miles per day and covering 1000 miles over 14 days this is Great Britain's best known cycle challenge. You cycle with a group & an experienced guide whilst your luggage is transported for you each day. Cameraderie within the group provides support and impetus to keep going and complete the tour and there is always someone going at a similar pace if you don't want to cycle alone.

Lochranza Castle

Dover to Cape Wrath

Everyone has heard of the Lands End to John o'Groats tour which runs from the Southwest corner to the North East corner of the UK but what about the other diagonal? The Dover to Cape Wrath tour is an interesting and spectacular alternative to the LEJOG. Starting from Dover the route covers the eastern side of England and the Yorkshire Dales before crossing over to the West coast of Scotland and island hopping up to the remote lighthouse at Cape Wrath.

A welcome break!

Coast to Coast Cycle Tours

This classic Great British ride covers some of northern England's most rugged and spectacular scenery. Join us on this 136 mile ride from the west coast to the east coast of England and enjoy one of the UK's most archetypal and memorable tours. The route that we take avoids main roads and keeps to quiet country lanes and cycleways. A guide cycles with the group & your bags are moved for you each day.

Way of the Roses

Way of the Roses Cycle Tours

An interesting alternative to the original C2C this coast to coast tour takes a more southerly route from Morecambe to Bridlington. At 170 miles over four days the Way of the Roses route was opened by Sustrans in 2010 and provides fantastic scenery throughout.

Moselle to Mozart

Cycling in Germany/Austria

We are very excited about our new 'Moselle to Mozart' cycle tour as it proves to be a belter! Our route takes in the Moselle, Rhine and Danube rivers and passes through some of Southern Germany and Austria's most spectacular scenery. Covering 800 miles over 13 days this tour is more relaxed than our Lands End to John o'Groats tour, is suitable for road and hybrid bikes and includes all the usual Peak Tours Support.

What our customers say

Niv, Johnny and James worked so hard to make the trip run smoothly and they were great guides and companions! I had such a good time. Brilliant!

Fran McLean, June 2014

Guides were beyond excellent. Brew van was totally awesome – that red van made the Tour for me! Overall, excellent plus.

Ian Hope, June 2014

Steve, you’ve got it just right, mate – don’t change a thing. We wish it could have lasted forever (except for the sore backsides and tired legs)!

Peter & Karen Teague (Australia), June 2014

The accommodations were perfect and interestingly varied and gave me a well - rounded sense of what Britain is all about. Everything worked like clockwork. Thanks for doing such a great job. I will definitely choose Peak Tours on my next cycling adventure.

Lauren Nadler (USA), June 2014

If you are crazy enough to attempt to ride LEJOG then I challenge anyone to find a better company than Peak Tours. Their support and organisation was absolutely excellent. We’ve now ridden two of their bike tours and would definitely ride with them again.

Jill Armstrong, June 2014

This has been the hardest thing I have ever done but also the most rewarding and the biggest accomplishment ever! Peak Tours made that possible and I would highly recommend them to anyone thinking of doing a cycling tour!
