The Tour

Boat & Bike - Tuscany with Elba Island

This boat & bike tour takes you from the coast of Tuscany to the famous islands of Elba and Giglio and is a great sailing area for the three-master Atlantis. You cycle through nature reserves, between vineyards and olive trees, through villages and towns steeped in history and along the sea. A basic level of fitness through regular cycling is required, as up to 700 meters in altitude have to be overcome every day. You also need to be sure-footed and agile, as the Atlantis is often anchored and shore leave is by dinghy.
If you wish, you can stay on board the three-masted barkentine Atlantis.
