With warmer weather around the corner, it’s time to plan that trip to some amazing places in an active and interesting way. If you are a bike enthusiastic, there are some great ways to explore the United States or other countries such as Europe, New Zealand or Canada, to just mention a few. Here’s an example of an exciting wine country biking tour.

Napa & Sonoma Counties: Vineyards, Redwoods & the Coast

Like a fine wine, this classic trip has grown beautifully with age. You can explore five valleys of world-famous vineyards, forests of soaring redwoods, perfect pastoral landscapes and the captivating Pacific Coast. The region’s hidden gems and treasures, from wineries and restaurants to picnic spots and deluxe spas, are there to enjoy. This tour is filled with options to customize your experience. Continue biking the stunning countryside, return for a relaxing massage or schedule a tasting at an off-route winery — the choice is yours.

You can enjoy a picnic lunch at Bouchaine Vineyards, pedal past neatly manicured vineyards, old barns and picturesque farmhouses. A stay in the historic town of Sonoma, where you can choose to cap off the day with a soothing massage or a Roman bath treatment, or enjoy the spa, fitness center, swimming pool and sauna at that night’s hotel.

Planning a picnic at Healdsburg or at one of Pacific Coast beaches is always relaxing. Stay at Yountville area and bike through the Dry Creek Valley. In Alexander Valley, enjoy a sample of local wine tasting before continuing to Napa Valley and the spa town of Calistoga, or savor the region’s best as you dine in Yountville, the “culinary capital” of wine country. A nice ride through the heart of the valley is highlighted with a visit to a few of the more than 500 wineries that dot the landscape. Choose from the many luxurious hotels, treat yourself to shopping and world-class dining, and then continue to ride down the Silverado Trail to experience more wineries.
