Tour Levels

Magnifica Tours are for Everyone

Magnifica tours are not for super athletes. But they are for motivated people that like the feel of a good workout. The level of fitness required follows Tourissimo guidelines and tour rating (below). 

The rating depends on a number of factors that include length of walk or ride, but focuses on elevation gain and gradient as well as type of terrain. 

Ebikes

Ebikes have a battery assisted system that, while still riding as a bike, provide "free" Watts that propel riders forward in a nearly magical way. They are an option that can allow riders to accomplish so much more than they would on a standard bike. And, you guessed it, they level the playing field for couples of different fitness levels. 

The tour levels indicated show average daily activities. On some days, two or more options are offered for those wanting to do more or less. Please, bear in mind that we are not talking about gym workouts, but rather about outdoor activities where the occasional obstacle can make things a little more challenging. If in doubt, feel free to contact us to discuss what the best tour would be for you.

The most important thing of all: walk and bike at your own comfortable pace. The choice of pace and the amount of activity is always yours.

A tour leader will always be around with our support van, so you can walk or ride as much or as little as you like.
