You Can’t Beat Firsthand Experience

Each year we take to the field to see our trips for ourselves. Our team prides itself on being able to guide you, our guests, to the right trip—whether it be an avid climbing adventure through the Alps or a weekend trip to California Wine Country.

But all that knowledge has to come from somewhere. That’s why we make a point to send our team into the field to gain firsthand experience on a variety of trips. From the food to the rides to the accommodations, our team can provide thoughts and recommendations based on what they’ve seen for themselves.


Ashley: Trip Design Coordinator

Where did you go? Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons

Favorite ride of the trip? This is difficult…I only rode twice while I was there, but I have to say each ride was equally beautiful in their own ways. My first ride was an amazing introduction to the sights of the Tetons. My second ride was a bit more challenging with some hill climbs but incredibly worth it to see views of the mountains and wildlife.

What was your favorite trip WOW? The views – although they are always changing, they never end! From the craggy mountain peaks to the turquoise waters, it seems like this place is too good to be true. It doesn’t hurt that the wildlife isn’t too shy either–I saw countless elk, mountain sheep, and two black bears!

Would recommend this trip to guests who…? This trip is a great option for those fellow nature junkies who truly want an iconic experience in a National Park. It is a great mix of cycling the long wildlife corridor roads and hiking the more remote and special places of the parks.


Luke: Trip Consultant

Where did you go? Tuscany, Italy

Favorite ride of the trip? Day 5 San Quirico to Montalcino Loop was awesome. Loved it so much I did it twice!

What was your favorite trip WOW? Lunch on Day 4 at Da’Roberto’s.

Would recommend this trip to guests who…? Love beautiful views, appreciate good food and wine, want a few cultural experiences, and enjoy challenging riding.

Sherrie: Trip Consultant

Where did you go? Zion Long Weekend

Favorite ride of the trip? My favorite ride was on the last day from Springdale to the Temple of Sinawava. It was a super peaceful and serene ride.

What was your favorite trip WOW? Riding into Zion National Park past the Checkerboard Mesa and then hiking the Canyon Overlook Trail for some incredible views looking down onto Zion National Park.

Would recommend this trip to guests who…? Are looking for a weekend getaway and want to explore one of America’s great National Parks. This trip is for the adventurous guest who is looking to ride but also hike some throughout the weekend.


Essie: Guest Services Coordinator

Where did you go? Asheville to Brevard

Favorite ride of the trip? Day 4, had the most beautiful ride up Mount Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Mississippi River. It is a gorgeous ride with panoramic views and many lookout points. At the summit, you can see Tennessee in the distance.

What was your favorite trip WOW? We had two brewery stops on the trip, and I do not drink beer. The guides surprised me with high-quality gin and tonic, so I was able to have a drink along with everyone else!

Would recommend this trip to guests who…? Anyone who loves great views, and wants to see the beautiful Appalachian mountains.

Trek Travel Recap: Biking from Lucca to Cinque Terre

After a week of epic descents, stunning views and decadent “apres-bike”, I am thrilled to report that my Trek Travel Italy bike tour was nothing short of amazing. The bike routes, wine tours, meals, hotels, and guides were all five star, and I’ve narrowed down the most memorable moments and biggest takeaways to give you a glimpse into a biking adventure with Trek Travel.

Day 1 Welcome to Tuscany – After a scenic lunch at an authentic hillside restaurant, we were introduced to our equipment for the week (more on this later). The afternoon ride gave us our first glimpse into the famous wine country, and the prelude was perfect. An evening tour/tasting at the Buonomico Wine Resort was followed by an open-air dinner. The food, wine and views got our taste buds prepped for the rest of the week.

Day 2 Ride into Fattoria del Teso – The morning ride was a fantastic climb through hilly vineyards, which was pure cycling bliss. For lunch, we cruised down the most beautiful shaded grove of trees into a centuries-old family winery for a traditional Italian meal – pasta heaven! The day concluded with a stroll through the picturesque town of Montecarlo and dinner at the Michelin starred Butterfly.

Day 3 Pietrasanta and Il Bottaccio – The hamlet of Pietrasanta is famous for its beautiful and unique marble, which Michelangelo used in his works. The roads to our mid-day destination were curvy, shaded, and perfect for riding through. During the afternoon, we caught our first glimpse of the Mediterranean Sea from high up in the hills as we made our way to II Bottaccio. This 18th-century mill has been converted into a breathtaking hotel. Every room featured a unique medieval style and charm (complete with an original olive oil mill in ours)!

Day 4 Climbing Passo Del Bracco – The pinnacle of today’s ride was the 3000 ft. ascent of this marquee Italian pass from the Ligurian Sea town of Levanto. A haven for cyclists, the route has been featured in the Giro d’Italia. Even though the climb was just a little piece of the pro stage, it was the most vertical I had ever attempted on a bike. Both challenging and gratifying, the long road up was rewarded with a thrilling descent into the beach town of Moneglia.

Day 5 Hike through Cinque Terre – Although it’s hard to imagine, the Cinque Terre region is even more stunning than the pictures let on. We spent the morning hiking the hills from Manarola to Corniglia, where I ate pesto gnocchi and gelato to my heart’s content. An afternoon of relaxing at the beach meant that lunch was a no-holds-barred experience.

Top 5 takeaways:

• Preparation will optimize your experience. This means not only means time in the saddle but also experience with how a road bike handles. We rode 30 to 50 miles each day with anywhere from 3,000 to 5,000 elevation gain, which makes for some big climbs & long descents. Being comfortable on long and sometimes steep downhills is key for a safe trip.

•Since there is quite a bit of ground to cover within a five-day bike trip, the days are action-packed. Come into your trip well-rested, as the mornings are relatively early and in typical European fashion, the dinners start late and end even later.

•If you want to see or do more, don’t be afraid to ask your Trek guides if it’s possible. Although the itinerary is largely set, the guides work tirelessly to ensure you have the best trip possible. If you would like to go explore a town or clock some extra miles, they will find a way to make it happen.

• Equipment makes a big difference. Each Trek bike is equipped with a Garmin GPS which is programmed with your route for the day. It alerts you to upcoming turns and notifies you if you’re off route. From someone who has navigated other bike trips using paper instructions, the Garmin is definitely the optimal choice. As far as the bike themselves, Trek equips you with their latest and greatest Domane SL-7. An e-bike option is also available on most trips and can make the whole experience more accessible to a broader range of cyclists.

• To keep yourself in the saddle and feeling your best, nutrition is key. The never ending and delicious supply of wine, cappuccinos and food means that you need to stay on top of your water and electrolyte intake. The guides make this easy with drinks, electrolyte tablets and healthy snacks set out at every break point. Stay hydrated!

Would I do it again? Absolutely! Trek just posted their 2020 trip itineraries and I already have my eye on one…

3. New Mexico

There is a good reason Northern New Mexico is called the “The Land of Enchantment”, it was the main inspiration for Gerogia O’Keeffe after all. And it plays host to Santa Fe, a city considered to be the epicenter of the American Southwest. Bursting with centuries-old culture, traditional cuisine, famed roads and sacred mesas, by the time this journey comes to an end you’ll be shocked it took you this long to explore a cycling gem that’s been sitting right in your backyard.

4. Tuscany Luxury

A guest and guide favorite, Tuscany’s incredible wine and cuisine paired with its sun-drenched landscapes creates the recipe for an unforgettable and magical trip. Cyclists of all ability can pedal country roads through lush vineyards taking in the sights and smells along the way. And once the riding’s all said and done, you’ll even get the chance to create your own Tuscan feast under the guidance of an Italian master chef. By the time you leave you will be one with the “allegria” that permeates this breathtaking region of Italy.

“I’m not sure I can adequately express what I am feeling. My husband, Dave and I were celebrating our 30th anniversary. We also had never been to Europe. I grew up in an Italian speaking family. I have always wanted to go to Italy. You could not have dropped me in a better place with better people. It was fantastic. Our guides, Sam and Sheila were terrific. They took superb care of us. Our whole group got along very well. The biking, food and wine were fantastic.”

“All I can say is that Mihael was fantastic. Mihael and Lisa were really what made this a “life-changing trip”. They were so generous, kind, funny, accommodating, and hard-working. Not to mention that they were both such strong cyclists. I would go on another trek trip knowing only that either one of them was going to be my guide! They just made the trip so fun and memorable!!”

I have to say that this trip exceeded all of our expectations, and surpassed our former experience.”

This is everything Italy could possibly offer.

Or maybe it’s simply because with every passing day, the glaciers get a little smaller.

3. Annecy to Alpe d’Huez

This trip is popular among those who’ve ever had a desire to conquer the monsters of France. It’s where cycling mythology was born, from Eddy Merckx’s dominance of five Tours, to Pantani’s record-breaking ascent up Alpe d’Huez, to today’s champions like Contador, Quintana and Froome battling it out in the mist and haze of Europe’s high peaks. And it even offers a chance to to stay on the Alp you know, love and lust for.

4. Costa Rica

It’s one of the most diverse and picturesque places on earth, so it should come at no surprise that this trip is a best seller among adventure-seekers looking to get up close to the Costa Rican countryside. Where else can you zipline across a tropical canopy, learn to surf, ride horses, bike from coast to coast, hike through the jungle, explore the beach and be back in time for dinner?

3. Provence

Nestled between the Rhone River and Italy, Provence offers plenty of southeastern French cuisine, washed down with world-class rosés and Pastis, a homegrown traditional liqueur. In July, Provence also offers sensational views of lavender fields for which the region is known, and there’s no better place to drink in the scenery than Abbaye de Senanque – a Cistercian abbey dating to the 12th-century, whose monks still produce lavender and honey.
