Overview
Our 3 hour Sky to Sea bike tour takes us to the highest and lowest points of Edinburgh accessible by tarmac on a choice of manual or e-bike. From our very own volcano, Arthur's Seat, with its panoramic views across the city, to the golden sandy beaches and sea views at Portobello. We also pay a visit to the Port of Leith, with over 600 years of maritime history, and the Georgian New Town, a UNESCO world heritage site with grand streets and town houses. Transport to the start of the route is provided free of charge, in our custom bike bus. Your tour will end centrally, close to the Waverley Station.
