Florida Gulf Coast I – Van

Take a week this winter and swap the cold and snow for the warm, sand beaches of Florida’s Gulf Coast. Described as the “Forgotten Coast,” the “Undiscovered Coast,” and “Florida as it used to be,” this tour visits some of the most pristine beaches in America, along with other coastal and inland landscapes. We’ll even carry your belongings so you can enjoy your Sunshine State getaway unburdened by gear.

We’ll camp on barrier islands among white dunes and endless beaches populated by pelicans, cormorants, and ibis. Inland, we’ll witness how eons of geologic and hydrologic forces have formed sinkholes, upwelling springs, clear cool streams, and caves. We’ll also learn that Florida is not entirely flat.

So shake off the cold, grab your bike, and join us for a winter trip of terrific cycling in a place where you can walk through the white stuff barefoot and warm those frozen toes.
