Headwater is a specialist tour operator, offering some of the finest cycling holidays for the over 50s. Inspired by gastronomy, culture and natural beauty, we’ve been hand-crafting unique holiday experiences across Europe and beyond for more than 30 years, specialising in off-the-beaten-track locations.

A Headwater cycling holiday can be as relaxed or as challenging as you choose to make it. Start with just enough exercise to work up an appetite for your next great meal, and choose from longer route options when you’re feeling more energetic. It’s your holiday, you set the pace!

Self-guided cycling holidays

Headwater cycling routes offer real variety, from quiet country lanes through lavender-filled Provence to cliff-top coastal paths in The Algarve. Even if you’re an absolutely beginner, we’ve got a cycling holiday with your name on it. As all our cycling holidays are self-guided you’re free to explore entirely at your own pace. You’ll be kitted out with super comfy, gel-saddled bikes, detailed maps and route notes, water bottles and panniers.

Worried about those pesky hills?

We provide electric bikes in a number of regions so there’s no excuse not to get pedalling! Well designed and very easy to use, these electric beauties help take the edge off daunting hill climbs and long distances. Don’t get us wrong – you’ll still need to put the legwork in – but if you’re new to cycling holidays or worried about keeping up with your companions these could be just what you need.

This is just a snapshot of what you can experience with Headwater. If you want to find out more about our holidays, order your Headwater brochure now or visit our website for more holiday inspiration!
