About Us

About Us

Welcome to BikeHike Adventures - the ultimate destination for active travel tours that take you beyond the ordinary and into the heart of some of the world's most beautiful and culturally rich destinations. We've been leading the way in active travel tours since 1993, earning awards and recognition for our exceptional itineraries, customer service, and commitment to responsible travel.

Over the last 30 years, we have been ranked as one of the top adventure travel companies by National Geographic Adventure Magazine, with many of our itineraries featured in the Tours of a Lifetime in National Geographic Traveler, Outside Magazine, Explore Magazine, and countless others. 

At BikeHike Adventures, we're all about providing you with a unique and unforgettable experience, and we are passionate about connecting travelers to the communities they visit on a deeper level than what is possible through conventional tours.

Our founder, Trish Sare, created BikeHike Adventures with the vision of providing adventure tours that help travelers connect with their destination's communities at a deeper level. 

Our tagline, "connecting the world through active travel," captures the idea that active travel allows travelers to immerse themselves the local landscapes and culture. When you use your own muscle power to get around, you feel more grounded and connected to the destination, and this connection allows you to explore the landscape and communities in a way that traditional ways can't match.

We offer more than just adventure activities; we provide you with a journey of the senses. Our tours include opportunities to experience the flavors of the region, such as visiting family-run wineries in Tuscany, Italy, or sampling artisanal cheeses at a small, family-owned dairy in the Slovenian countryside, and even cooking classes with local families, where you get to learn how to make traditional dishes using fresh, local ingredients.

We believe that truly experiencing the local culture and cuisine is key to understanding and appreciating each destination's unique character. 

Our tours typically include a combination of adventure activities such as biking, hiking, kayaking, and experiential travel. 

However, we are more than happy to work with you to create customized adventure vacations that include your favorite activities. Whether it's a family adventure vacation, a honeymoon, a bucket list getaway, or a special group vacation, our goal is to help you build the perfect trip. 

We also offer vacations perfect for single travelers, and our tours are single-friendly, with no extra fees for solo travelers to join a set departure.

At the core of everything we do is our belief that relationships and connections truly matter. We take pride in our commitment to sustainable and responsible travel practices that respect and support the communities we visit. We work closely with local partners to ensure our tours have a positive impact on the environment, economy, and social fabric of the places we explore. Travel isn't just about seeing the world, but making a positive difference in it.

Our team of expert guides and travel specialists are passionate about sharing their love of adventure and travel with you, ensuring your BikeHike experience is one you won't forget. 

Trish Sare, the owner/operator, is still very active in the day-to-day operation of BikeHike Adventures, and you can chat with her when you call and may even meet her on one of the adventures as she leads a few special departures annually.

You can learn more about our story and vision. 

If you have any questions or need assistance, you can contact us anytime, or toll-free at +18888050061.

We look forward to connecting you to the world through active travel and helping you create unforgettable memories.

Happy Travels,
BikeHike Adventures.
