Sparkling emerald seas, kilometres of golden sand, wonderful food and ancient cities…it’s not hard to find reasons to go cycling along the Mediterranean! Unfortunately, in the 8 countries covered by this project, the potential of cycling tourism has not yet been realised even though it prolongs the tourism season, reduces the environmental impact of travelling and can bring tourists to less visited areas.

EuroVelo 8 – Mediterranean Route is a long-distance cycle route that connects the whole Mediterranean from Cyprus to Cádiz. The overall objective of the project is to use this route as a tool to influence regional and national policies in favour of sustainable and responsible tourism, providing transnational solutions in coastal areas across the Mediterranean.
