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.

For active Holidays across the globe, Peak Tours has partnered with Footloose. Visit their website for details about the service they offer.

What our customers say

I would certainly recommend Peak Tours to people who want to complete this challenge. All three guides were excellent and added to the ride in their different ways.

Pam Gretton, September 2014

Graham, Niv and Andy made the tour. They were very supportive and great company. Overall, the tour was excellent.

San Chima, September 2014

The tour guides were fantastic, gave support where required and quickly recognised that we were competent cyclists/navigators/mechanics and left us to it! They seemed to genuinely care that we were all happy and went out of their way to solve any problems.

Can't fault the organisation - very slick operation.

Stephen Jackson, September 2014

Absolutely fantastic.I've already recommended you to a number of friends and as soon as I have the time, I plan to do another trip with you!

Gilly Cooper

The organisation was absolutely bloody fantastic. Its obvious that a lot of effort has been put in to planning routes and sorting stops and accommodation.Really impressed - no wonder you get repeat business. Am seriously considering signing up for another tour when my bum recovers!

Victoria Barber, September 2014

Fantastic experience. Graham, Johnny and Bill were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Cannot speak highly enough of their efforts to make the tour enjoyable. Very impressed with the food- buying in local specialities as we travelled North was a nice touch.

Have recommended Peak Tours to everyone I speak to about the trip.
