EuroVelo 8

Sparkling emerald seas, kilometres of golden sand, mysterious islands, wonderful food, ancient cities…it’s not hard to find convincing reasons to travel along the Mediterranean! And what better way to do it then by bike along the roughly 5,900 km long Mediterranean Route? Admire for instance Granada’s Alhambra or Gaudi’s mind blowing architecture in Barcelona, feel the romance of Venice’s canals and Dubrovnik’s old town or pull your bike up alongside an inviting beach and just relax.

EuroVelo 8 connects many destinations that are popular tourist attractions in their own right: Barcelona, Monaco, Venice, the Croatian Coast, Cyprus – the list goes on.  It is little surprise therefore that the Mediterranean Route receives more interest than any other EuroVelo route.  And whilst many of it’s destinations are already internationally famous, there are still lots of undiscovered gems to be found along the way, not least in Albania and Montenegro. 

So what are you waiting for!
