Dream Challenges, a specialist tour operator (ATOL 10456) organises and manages this event on behalf of BHF. Participants raising funds for British Heart Foundation will be joined by others, raising money for different charities.

What's included

As well as supporting our life saving work, your sponsor money covers your tour costs which includes:
  • All flights, foreign overland transport and luggage transfers (starting from and ending at the relevant London airport, and including all known UK air taxes at the time of costing)
  • Overnight accommodation as per itinerary
  • All meals and snacks as per itinerary
  • Entrance fees to monuments visited on cycling days
  • Tour leader, guides, technical, medical and transport back-up services.

Other things to budget for

Some expenses are not included in your challenge costs:

  • Personal expenses, such as drinks and gifts
  • Visas and vaccinations where required
  • Airport taxes, passenger service charge and green tax (approx £350 subject to change)
  • Travel insurance - you must have this to be allowed to travel (approx. £60 subject to change)
