At Granite State Vacations we're not just about bicycling. We're about exploring and discovering the beauty of New Hampshire – on your bicycle, in your hiking boots or your car. Our routes have been carefully planned to showcase the best of the Sunapee area. Our tours feature fabulous cycling, scenic back roads, covered bridges, historic towns, and warm and friendly lodging.
Mt. Sunapee and Mt. Kearsarge create a magnificent backdrop for experiencing the charm of this classic New Hampshire setting. Quiet roads crisscross through the towns, making them perfect for exploration by bicycle. Besides an appreciation for the beauty of New Hampshire, you'll come away with a sense of its history.
Enjoy your picnic lunch overlooking Sunapee Harbor. Take a scenic afternoon cruise on the Lake or go kayaking. Take in a swim or hike along the way. Visit the Henniker Brewery and sample the local lager.
You'll cover 20-30 miles per day and re-energize each night at our small B&B or country inn. Let your mind and body take a healthy break and you'll return home relaxed, pampered, fit and revitalized.
During the summer months you can tour the Franklin Pierce Homestead, or visit The Fells, an historic estate with beautiful gardens on Lake Sunapee. Some facilities close in the late Fall but the fun doesn’t end when you put away your bike for the winter. We partner with Pats Peak and Mt Sunapee for some of the best downhill skiing and riding. Snowshoe trails are out our front doors and in the Spring we know where to find the sweetest maple syrup. The region abounds with things to do – on or off your bicycle.
Granite State Vacations is committed to offering you exceptional quality and value. Lodging on your tour, the Rosewood Country Inn in Bradford, or the Henniker House in Henniker embody the spirit of all the wonderful things New Hampshire has to offer. Let nothing get between your 2 wheels and the road ahead to a fabulous vacation!
On our bike tours, gear shuttle and all meals are included. From elegant gourmet dinners to hearty farm-to-fork breakfasts, to tasty picnic lunches, you are sure to sample the best regional fare.
We offer mid-week tours from Inn-to-Inn, or stay multiple nights at one inn and consider us your home base. Let us create a mid-week tour, customized just for you!
