The Marmot Tours experience has been crafted over 15 years by passionate and experienced cyclists, mountain experts and outdoor enthusiasts. Over the years we’ve evolved, tweaked and carefully developed our fully suported European road cycling holidays into a product that we’re immensely proud of.  Everything we do is with a personal and attentive touch – whatever you need, we’ll do our very best to help.

This cycling holiday is your goal, your dream. It’s your mountain to climb. We’re here to make it real, make it fun, and to make it the best holiday it can be – we love the preparation so you can love the ride.

We know that when you come on your European cycling holiday you’ll be bringing your months of training, your beloved wheels, your hopes and fears. Whilst you’ve been training, we’ve also been preparing, leaving no stone unturned to ensure that your holiday runs smoothly and exceeds your expectations. On every one of our holidays, there are two guides and two ridiculously well-equipped support vehicles, offering you every possible aspect of support: mechanical, physical and moral. All of our guides are highly experienced, incredibly well prepared and technically competent; their knowledge and skills ensure that you can relax and just turn the pedals, enjoying the scenery, the culture, the camaraderie and the escape.

You lead, we follow.

We gear the holiday experience around your abilities, your needs and expectations.  Our range of holidays in the mountain ranges of Europe offers something for everyone; from cyclists new to climbing to experts and those in peak fitness.

And just some of the feedback we’ve had…

“Excellent – I had high hopes for this holiday, yet it somehow exceeded almost all of my expectations. I can’t rate the holiday more highly, nor adequately express my gratitude for such a wonderful week.” Andrew S. Dolomites & Stelvio cycling holiday 2019

“Love the vans, the support and all the kit. The fresh fruit was vital given the extreme heat and was an important source of hydration during the week.”  John B. Raid Alpine cycling challenge (Geneva – Nice) 2019

“I wish I’d found your company years ago… will be back. You’ve got it sussed. We have been with two very big companies before and this is the best experience we have had.” Samantha S. Ventoux Cingles Cycling Challenge 2019

“Excellent – As with all my trips, this was an amazing experience. Doing the challenge route every day was at least as tough and rewarding as a raid. A great group of riders and as for our guides, well what can I say? Where do you find these people? Jeremy B. Road cycling in the Picos & Angliru 2019

“Marmot Tours are the Gold Standard of cycle holiday providers that other companies need to aspire to!” Richard P. Raid Dolomites road cycling tour 2019

“I really valued being able to go at my own pace and not feeling that I was holding anyone up. The route mapping was really clear and it was good to have details of cafes etc. It was very important for us to have various options each day as our abilities were different.” Karen S. Road cycling in the Dolomites and Stelvio regions of Italy 2019

“Great value for money! The logistical support was great, food/accommodations more than adequate, and guides were fantastic. I have looked at other tour operators that cost at least double the price for a similar tour and can not imagine getting more value for the additional price.” Marc T. Cycling holiday in Italy (the Dolomites and Stelvio area) 2019

“This was the best structured riding tour I have ever been on. Having the freedom to ride at your own pace worked so well. If I was ready to go there was no waiting about. At times I rode comfortably with other people on the trip and teamed up with another rider for one of the big challenges. Other times I was happy to ride alone for sections at my own speed. If I wanted to head off to complete the challenge I didn’t have to wait and at other times I also didn’t have any worries about having faster riders being forced to wait for me.” Kaye J. Cycling in the Dolomites & Stelvio 2019
