What’s New? While Stephanie Ventures was founded in 2014 as a Bike and Barge tour company, we know some travelers want a more immersive experience, in which they can cycle at their own pace, dine in local restaurants, or take a day off the bike SO – – – we’ve expanded our offerings to include new land-based tours where one can do just that! Check out our itineraries below to learn more about our Lake Constance Hub & Spoke Tour and Scenic Sweep of Sweden’s West Coast Point-to-Point Tour!
Of course, if biking and barging and all its convenience is what you’ve still got your heart set on, check out our exciting new 14-night Danube Discovery Bike & Boat itinerary below.
