The beauty of this package is in the freedom it offers: without a guide, you are free to decide the timing, pace, and stops of your journey. Travel freely, travel your way!

3/5 Medium

Moderate, between 35 and 85 kilometers per day with an elevation gain between 300 and 1000 meters.



The starting point is the same as the ending point, with overnight stays in different hotels and daily stages.


Day 1: Truro
Individual arrival in Truro and overnight stay at the hotel. Truro is the main city of Cornwall and the most Southern of the UK, a vibrant city with Victorian-style buildings and long surf beaches.

Day 2: Truro – Helston (37 km/23 mi. or 49 km/30,5 mi.)
Traversing between Truro and Helston for your next overnight stay, this route takes you past the old tin mine at Wheal Jane to Penryn, once the main port in this area, where you’ll find its heritage displayed in some fine architecture from Tudor to Georgian and in a small museum. Continue down the coast to Falmouth, a busy pleasant town where the atmosphere is flavoured by the salt sea air. Here you can visit several exotic gardens, a Maritime Museum and some pleasant beaches. Impressive fortifications of Henry VIII’s Pendennis Castle still dominate the headland. Continue past more subtropical gardens to Gweek on the Helford Creek, the home of the National Seal Sanctuary where they rescue injured seal pups from local beaches and also care for other abandoned sea mammals. The terrain is not as tough as the circuit from Truro, but there are still some steep climbs out of Truro and around Falmouth, Constantine and Gweek. Overnight in Helston.

Day 3: Helston – Lizard Peninsula – Helston (38 km/24 mi. or 56 km/35 mi.)
Explore the west coast of Cornwall through the delightful Church Cove to Mullion from where you can continue all the way down to Lizard, the most southerly point of the British mainland. This also takes you to Kynance Cove where the combination of the rare serpentine rock and the powerful sea has produced amazing beaches with cliffs, caves and islands. Next, cross Goonhilly Downs where the underlying serpentine rock gives the area most of its special characteristics. The soil it produces is the ideal habitat for the Cornish Heath that is almost unique to this area. It supports rare wildlife including the hen harrier and short-eared owl and is also the home of a satellite tracking station. Overnight in Helston.

Day 4: Helston – Penzance (29 km/18 mi.)
Leaving Helston, continue to Porthleven which for many years was the local centre for boat building and is still a working fishing port. Then follow the coast west to Praa Sands, this mile-long sweep of sand is renowned as one of Cornwall’s finest family beaches and is very popular with surfers. Further on is one of Cornwall’s most famous landmarks, St. Michael’s Mount, a little island community that can be reached by causeway at low tide. It is also the perfect photo opportunity! Overnight in Penzance.

Day 5: Penzance – Lands’ End – Penzance (29 km/18 mi. or 45 km/28 mi.)
The circuit from Penzance takes you out to Newlyn, England’s busiest fishing port. The local scenery inspired the Newlyn School of artists and their legacy can be seen in museums and galleries around the town. Continue through narrow streets past little Mousehole harbour and over to the pretty, sheltered Lamorna Cove, which is a lovely spot for a swim. Pass the Merry Maidens, a Bronze Age stone circle that stands amidst a remarkable concentration of ancient Celtic standing stones to Lands’ End, where the road stops and you can enjoy a variety of entertainments and attractions. Overnight in Penzance.

Day 6: Penzance – Truro (52 km/32 mi.)
Leave Penzance and ride to the north coast where the mudflats of the River Hayle are a rich habitat for wading birds. Follow the coast road past miles of sand dunes then above rugged cliffs with spectacular views of the Atlantic. Explore a woodland cycle trail at the tranquil Tehidy Country Park, on the way to the popular surfing cove at Portreath. This was one of the main mining areas in Cornwall until the early 20th century and you can still visit Cornish Goldsmith workshops and exhibitions as well as the Tolgus Tin Streaming works nearby. The ride ends along beautiful wooded valleys back into Truro. Overnight in Truro.

Day 7: Truro
End of services after breakfast.
