I cannot say enough how amazingly easy Trish and Meghan made planning our Cuba BikeHike Adventures trip! They were extremely quick to respond to our questions and helpful throughout the entire planning process. Once we arrived in Cuba, our guide, Erik and driver, Unior, were there to help us and share their knowledge and love of Cuba with us. The trip was very well organized, safe, and fun! We always felt welcome at the small hotels and casa particulars we stayed at - the owners treated us like family, even inviting us to share in the Cuba traditions and libations on New Year's Eve. Our bikes were in great condition, and the guides took the time to adjust the bikes to each of us. The food, while not as spicy as I had anticipated, was excellent. I feel the route we rode gave us a great feel for Cuba and it's people, and we also got to learn some of Cuba's history along the way. The Cuban people were welcoming and happy to see us and talk with us. I loved that we were never approached to buy anything or asked for money. I highly recommend getting with Trish or Meghan and planning a trip to Cuba with BikeHike - you will have a terrific trip, see the beautiful countryside, experience downtown Havana and make some new friends! BikeHike did a great job of having both physical activity and cultural time. Plus you will be able to enjoy some vitiman "R" - (wonderful Cuban rum!) If I could give more then 5 stars I definitely would - hopefully I will be able to do another journey with BikeHike in the future!

My BikeHike trip in Costa Rica was an excellent experience! There is no better way to experience the rain forest then from a raft on the Pacuare River! And mountain biking the back country to take in views of volcanoes and the coast was awesome. The opportunity to learn more about the people, culture, landscape and economy of Costa Rica from the local guides made it a much richer experience. The food and accommodations planned by BikeHike were great – enabling a variety of local experiences and tastes. I will definitely plan another trip with BikeHike Adventures. Thank you!

We cycled in Provence, France this past June, 2018
We wanted a self guided tour so we could cycle at our own pace-Bike Hike set us up. We connected with the Cycling company in France, collected our road bikes, helmets, maps and GPS and off we went- What an amazing time!
One cannot go wrong with France, but Bike did an amazing and thorough job of organizing. Their communication while planning is excellent.
Thank you Trish and Meghan!

This is our 3rd trip with Bike Hike

Just got back from our Mull Odyssey cruise. An amazing, truly special holiday. So many highlights to pick from but the amazing columnar basalt rock formations on Staffa; Lochbuie Standing Stone Circle; dolphins bow riding; huge jellyfish; 'helping' crew the ship; Tobermory; sunsets & rainbows; Iona and the fabulous scenery are a good start. Special thanks to Christophe and Amy for going above and beyond being the crew. I cannot recommend this fabulous trip and company enough!

Thank you to Chris and Amy for a most enjoyable adventure. We visited places that will stay in our thoughts throughout the winter months ahead. Amy's cooking was exceptional and Christophe a very informative guide and skipper. We would love to return.

          About BikeHike Adventures

          BikeHike Adventures was founded over 20 years ago and specializes in multi-activity trips in South and Central America, Canada, Europe, Australia, Asia and Africa. The Company places emphasis on cultural exploration throughout its expeditions. Customization of trips can be requested for as little as two travelers.

          About St Hilda Sea Adventures

          St. Hilda Sea Adventures provide the unique experience to see Scotland from the sea. They offer many activities and private excursions - a perfect travel experience for families, older travellers, and small multi-gen groups.

          What Makes Them Stand Out?

          Taking only up to 11 guests (6 on St Hilda and 11 on Seahorse II), their tours are incredibly unique, as you cruise aboard a classic ex-tall ship (St Hilda) or a proper small ship (Seahorse II). Activities include sailing, swimming, sea kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, rock pooling, and lobster potting. Or, you can simply choose to just relax and watch the spectacular wildlife and scenery float by.

          Who Travels With Them?

          All ages and all types enjoy traveling with St. Hilda Sea Adventures. Families, couples, and solo passengers are all welcome. Passengers can choose to do as much or as little as they like. This is a great trip for young kids to enjoy as well, for the thrill of hoisting the sails like a true sailor.

          Where Do They Operate?

          The West Coast of Scotland is where they specialize, the Outer and Inner Hebrides specifically. Such a niche focus is a huge positive for those interested in getting a unique view of this part of the world.

          Why Travel With Them?

          Their Scottish cruises give you the opportunity to see extraordinary wildlife and to cruise aboard a small ship with skipper and chef and a small group of passengers. All food is included, and there are many opportunities for interesting excursions. Some excursions are included in the price however, you can also arrange excursions based on your interests. These are not included but allow for a wonderful amount of personalization to your travel experience with St. Hilda Sea Adventures.
