Ecotopia Biketour is a self-organized, international community that has been organizing a yearly bicycle tour in different regions of Europe since 1990. During the tour we visit environmental and social projects and practice forms of activism and sustainable living. We cook communal vegan food, practice consensus decision making, and share skills by doing workshops. One of our core values is to create a non-discriminatory environment. Ecotopia Biketour is for anyone interested in travelling by bike, community life, DIY, an ecological lifestyle, and/or learning by experience. If this sounds good to you, feel welcome to join us!

This year our theme is "Reclaim the Fields". Starting the 28th of June in Pamplona/Iruña, in July and August we will follow the northern coast of the Iberian Peninsula until Porto (early September). In the end, we will head in direction of Salamanca to join the Reclaim the Fields camp (2nd half of September).
