Interesting Facts

Am I suited for this kind of journey? The long distance journeys include the long-haul flights indicated.
The average age of our participants is between 55 and 65 years. But more than 40 years of experience have taught us that our tours also allure younger guests. You should have a normal fitness and a good dose of patience. Rotalis tours are no leisurely bike tours but also no great sporting challenges. They are rather suite the average capability of a trained cyclist who wants a training effect as well as a pleasurable cycling tour. This includes the utilization of different transport possibilities on site, in case cycling is not possible. There has never been a rainy day that had a lasting negative impact on the cycling experience. The recreational values of our tours often exceed  those of other vacations.

Flight Information

The long distance tours South Africa, Vietnam, Cuba and Costa Rica already include flights from/to Frankfurt. Connecting flights can be booked upon availability. For all other tours we happily offer to book your flights for an extra charge, with Lufthansa and partners, or sometimes Air France. As Rotalis has no flight contingents, the quotes prices are subject to availability in certain booking classes. The issuing of the tickets will be 4 weeks prior to the tour. If the flights are no longer available, we will send you another offer on short notice, which demands an immediate payment and ticket issue after acceptance. Furthermore, our price are subject to strict cancellation terms. We generally book our flights in Economy Class, upgrades are available upon request and with extra charge.


For your tickets, we need your sur- and last name as stated in your travel documents. If the names do not match, the airlines may deny your carriage.


The days end very comfortably in one of over 200 good to very good 3 and 4 star and sometimes even 5 star hotels. Only in some exceptional cases, we need to spend the night in a more simple accommodation. Due to the almost daily change of hotels, short-term rebookings might be necessary because of special events. Lunch (either a picnic arranged by our tour guide or in a restaurant, costs will be split by the end of the week) is usually not included in the package price.


Please note, that Rotalis generally receives special prices for extra nights which are valid for the entire season. Therefore, if booking directly via online platforms, cheaper prices might occur due to unpredictable free capacities. Mostly for short-term bookings.


Our guide team is an unusual phenomenon in the organised tourism. Helpful and skilled, friendly and youthfully charming they do an excellent job. If you have any complaints, please contact your tour guides directly. They will immediately try to resolve the problem on site.


Although, wearing a helmet is only obligatory in Spain, we highly recommend a helmet for all tours. Downfalls might be rare, but if you should fall a helmet reduces the risk of a serious head injury.

Minimum Number of Participants

The minimum numbers of participants for our tours are as the follows: Europe 8, Long Distance 10, Bike & Boat 20 Persons (on exclusively chartered ships). If some groups do not reach the minimum number of participants, we may cancel the tour five weeks prior to the start, at the latest.


A cycle tour on public and nearly traffic free streets is hardly possible, although differents regions have different traffic volumes. Thanks to the thoroughly and steady exploration of our routes, you mostly cycle away from the general traffic and enjoy the pure cycling experience. After every tour description, you will find a summary of the track.

Track Difficulty

All Rotalis tours are easily manageable for a well trained cyclist, even if its category 4. Moreover, our service bus is always at your disposal for more demanding ascents. The difficulities of the track measure the average requirements of each tour. Single days might be of a different difficulty and therefore more demanding.

1 Easy cycling without noteworthy climbs, almost exclusively on paved roads.

2 Easy stretches with only short climbs. Sometimes on nature paths.

3 Easy to medium tour. Easy climbs occur on most days.

4 Medium journey through undulating terrain, sometimes with longer climbs. We recommend to book your electric bike in time.

5. Very demanding tour with many long climbs.
