DuVine’s Bike Tours Take Sustainable Luxury Travel To a New Level

Forget the traditional tours; DuVine Cycling + Adventure Co. has distinguished itself as a pioneer in blending luxury with sustainability.

Since its inception in 1996 by Andy Levine, DuVine Cycling + Adventure Co. has been orchestrating immersive upscale bike tours across the globe’s most captivating landscapes — from the sun-drenched villages of Italy to the cloud forests of Costa Rica to the rolling hills of Napa Valley.

What truly sets DuVine apart is not just the promise of exploring breathtaking destinations and exceptional food and wine but its commitment to sustainable tourism. The award-winning company has earned accolades for its practices, being named one of Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Tour Operators six times since 2017. With a vision deeply rooted in authentic experiences, DuVine designs tours that allow travelers to connect intimately with the local culture, cuisine, and community.

Sustainability is at the core of every DuVine adventure. Biking is inherently a low-impact alternative to travel, but this company goes above and beyond. In 2022, DuVine became the first 100% carbon-neutral bike tour operator, offsetting its carbon footprint by investing in third-party carbon reduction projects.

Each tour is crafted thoughtfully, focusing on lesser-known paths and partnerships with local businesses to foster economic growth and cultural exchange. This meticulous attention to detail is what makes a Duvine tour so special. With a philosophy of forming meaningful human connections across cultures, DuVine is committed to bringing a positive socio-economic impact when visiting small communities, employing local guides, and investing the majority of tour costs in local businesses.

Now, onto the tours themselves: each multi-day tour is as much about food, wine, and premium accommodations as it is about biking. The company is obsessed with getting every traveler to experience the world by bike through its unforgettable itineraries. With e-bike options like Specialized’s Turbo Vado SL 4.0 (which rides almost like a traditional bike) and accommodating varying skill levels, the company has removed barriers for beginners while offering challenges for advanced riders.

For example, the Portugal Bike Tour through Alentejo takes riders beyond Lisbon, pedaling through the scenic countryside, dining at a private palace and winery, staying in a renovated 15th-century convent, exploring UNESCO-listed Évora’s ancient Roman temple and Chapel of Bones, and enjoying a private cooking class with a local chef.

The included amenities are comprehensive, from top-of-the-line bicycles and helmets to GPS navigation in most destinations and expert bilingual guides who provide rich historical and cultural insights. Support vehicles accompany the tours for comfort and safety, while daily bike maintenance keeps the journey smooth.
