Covid-19 update

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the safety and security of our guests, our staff and our suppliers is paramount.

Before joining a WildBike holiday you will be asked to show full Covid vaccination status and a negative Covid LFT test in the previous 24 hours.

We will make decisions about going ahead with or cancelling holidays on a trip by trip basis, reflecting government advice, WHO advice, and the detailed local situation at our destination. Although we will give as much notice as possible, because of the rapidly changing situation we may need to make late decisions.

In case of enforced cancellation of a trip by us, we will continue to be as flexible as possible through 2022, offering alternative dates or credit for a future holiday. In specific circumstances where we conclude this is not possible, we will offer a refund.

If you, independently, need to cancel your holiday due to Covid, our usual cancellation terms will apply. In these circumstances travel insurance may cover nonrefundable cancellation costs.

Stay safe and thank you for your understanding at this difficult time for us all.

About us

WildBike was founded in 2011 and was born from a long term passion for riding mountain bikes in wild places.

The owners of WildBike have ridden every inch of the trails ridden on our holidays. We are focused on the quality of trails, guiding, accommodation and food. Our ethos reflects this. We will stay small, add a few more quality destinations each year and keep the personal touch.
