If you've ever had a conversation with us about going on a cruise, you'll know that we have a pretty strongly-held view that it's not at all difficult to have an authentic and immersive experience while cruising. And one of our preferred cruise lines, Azamara Club Cruises, is proving that point for us.
You know that we like to ride bikes, right? (We're taking that Loire Valley bike trip this summer, remember?) Well, Azamara agrees with us that sometimes the best way to explore a destination is on two wheels. Cycling totally delivers on freedom, fitness, and fun. So if you want to enjoy the fresh air and outdoor adventures while on an incredible Azamara itinerary, check out their new Cruise Global, Bike Local shore excursions!
Azamara designed these excursions specifically for travelers seeking a more active alternative to casual sightseeing. So, these shore excursions, which are led by local, independent operators, offer a unique perspective on some of the world’s most stunning locations.
Cycle through picturesque Dutch villages and along winding country roads in Italy. Get in touch with traditions and customs that define the culture of a destination. Meet residents and take breaks to savor local dishes and drinks that will keep you fueled for your cycling adventure. You'll have plenty of opportunities to snap some shareable photos—these two-wheeled excursions take you out of bustling ports and bring you unique moments of travel discovery.
And, since Azamara is an upscale premium mid-size cruise line, there are so many luxury amenities included, these cruises are a tremendous value. We've recently heard from Azamara that they have some special pricing on last-minute departures. So, if you're thinking of traveling in the next few months, but worry that you haven't planned far enough in advance--fear not. We've got great pricing on select sailings (so much so, that we made it one of our current featured deals). Want to experience it for yourself? Of course you do!
