EuroVelo 6: Explore European rivers by bike!

EuroVelo 6 – Atlantic–Black Sea, is one of our most popular routes and it’s little wonder why: coasts, rivers, castles, top-class infrastructure and a nice flat topography make the about 4,400 km long route every cycle tourists’ dream journey. The famous sections along the Loire and the Danube Rivers are known to cycle tourists around the world, and for good reason. Come and see what all the fuss is about!
