Azamara guests know that the best way to explore the world is by ship. Azamara ships are like boutique hotels that float. You can experience so many wonderful places within the course of one vacation, yet you only have to unpack once. In fact, cruising makes the process of getting from one place to the next a pleasure.
If cruising is the best way to explore the world, what’s the best way to explore a destination? On two wheels!
Biking offers many benefits. It gives you the freedom to explore a place as a local would, zipping across cobblestoned streets or gliding down country roads. It’s faster than walking but offers more fresh air and scenic views than driving. Biking allows you to feel more connected to the environment you’re visiting, from the smell of the salty air along a coastal road to the sound of birds chirping in the woods.
Not to mention, it’s a great way to get a little exercise during your vacation – a perfect justification for making a few pit stops for food and drink along your route!
Our new Cruise Global, Bike Local shore excursions are introducing Azamara guests to the pleasures of bike tours. We’ve curated a collection of the best cycling experiences around the world.
In Amsterdam, cycling is part of the culture. In fact, it’s estimated that there are over 800,000 bicycles in Amsterdam – that’s more bikes than people! So there’s no better way to experience Amsterdam as a local than by biking. The flat landscape and bike-friendly infrastructure make it an ideal destination for cycling. Our tour takes guests through the beautiful countryside surrounding the city. Don’t forget to pack your camera – the beautiful Dutch landscape and iconic windmills will provide plenty of photo opportunities.
Another ideal cycling destination is the Italian Riviera. Our Cruise Global, Bike Local tour will lead guests along a winding coastal road from Santa Margherita to Portofino. There’s simply no better way to take in the region’s seaside hamlets and quaint fishing villages.
After burning all those calories cycling you’ll have earned a tasty treat! Don’t leave Portofino without trying their local specialty, Paciugo. Pronounced pah-choo-go, the name means “messy concoction”. The fruity sundae is refreshing serving of vanilla gelato, topped with fresh fruit, cream, and syrup.
