Switzerland Bike + Barge Tours

Bike and barge in Switzerland? Yes, indeed! We have a bike and boat tour on the Rhine that dips into Switzerland and includes Basel, one of Switzerland's underrated tourist attractions, in the very heart of the tri-national region, sharing borders with France and Germany. Basel is a cultural haven with over 40 museums, a lovely medieval center, and is one of Switzerland's oldest university towns. This lovely "green" city is a fitting place to include on a bicycle tour in Switzerland with its many well-marked bicycle lanes and bicycle-friendly atmosphere.
