Fat Bike Cycling Tours, Bicycle & E-bike Tours and Hire | Swakopmund

Swakopmund Fat Bike Cycling Tours offers fat bike cycling tours and bicycle and E-bike cycling tours and rental in the charming town of SwakopmundNamibia. Our fat bike tours over the sand dunes of the Namib Desert are eco-friendly. There are no emissions or noise pollution from any of our bikes, including the E-bikes. There is no need for a motorized vehicle to tour and explore the Namib Desert. These giant dunes are not meant to be ridden on by a bicycle – until the Fat Bike arrived! Or cycle through the charming and historical streets of the lovely coastal town of Swakopmund. A fat bike is surprisingly easy to ride even when riding over the sand dunes of the Namib Desert. The tyres are balloon-like, and it is almost like floating over sand and pebbles. A lot less effort is required to cycle a fat bike than a regular bicycle. The fat bike tyres provide a broader area that comes into contact with the ground surface, and the rider’s weight spreads more evenly. 

Cycling has become increasingly popular globally and has grown into a popular activity in Swakopmund. It is one of the best ways to experience a town and even the Namib Desert. We cater to all fitness levels and our Swakopmund cycling tours  have proven to be a popular activity for visitors and families visiting Swakopmund.

Swakopmund Fat Bike Tours caters for all fitness types and levels of experience.
