Itinerary

Day 1 - Calais to Nancy

speed 300 Miles
timer 6.20 hrs

Meeting point – Folkestone, Kent. Outside the EuroTunnel, motorcycle parking area.

Our motorcycle tour starts with a train journey, following a quick briefing before we arrive in France. Finally we are on our way, the first 80 miles are straight up the motorway to the standard coffee/breakfast stop. After lunch we take the twisty French Route National roads across the Ardennes Region of Northern France. Long straights, into sweeping bends, up hill down dales and all the while just great motorcycling roads. A great way to ease into a fantastic motorcycle tour.

Day 2 - Nancy to Lake Konstanz

speed 235 Miles
timer 6.5 hrs

Following a hearty breakfast, we head for the spa town of Baden Baden, just over the Rhine River, and into the Black Forest. Taking the bucket list B500 with its freshly resurfaced fast sweeping bends, a must for any motorcyclist. Its not just the fantastic road, sweeping hairpins but the views across the Black Forest that make this a brilliant first days riding.

After a visit to the Rhine Fall, the largest plane waterfall in Europe, and we will make our way to our hotel for the night.

Day 3 - Lake Konstanz to Bolzano

speed 335 Miles
timer 7.15 hrs

Day three is all about mountain passes and awesome views and hence roads any biker would love to get their wheels on.

On leaving the hotel we ride the south banks of the Bodensee Obersee before heading south over the Wolfgang Pass to the Davos, followed by the Fluela Pass, which is one of my personal favourites.

The famous Stelvio, at around 2700 metres it’s the second highest pass in the Alps. It is not just the 50 hairpins that will test your nerve and your skill, but even more, the vistas will blow your mind. Lunch is taken at the summit, after our short stop we ride the stunning route down to Bormio, onto the Gavia Pass. Known for the amazing vista this pass will test your riding skills, with no crash barriers on some of the higher parts of the pass you need to definitely have your wits about you.

The thrills are not quite over for the day though, from here we head over the Tonale Pass and finally concluding the day with the Mendel Pass before gliding into Bolzano, our stop for the evening.

Day five is a relatively short day as we head past Postojna Caves (optional Stop) to the Croatian border and on to Plitvicka, following checking in you have the rest of the day to relax or head off and explore your surroundings. The Plitvice Lakes National Park holds a spectacular array of waterfalls, lakes, forests and a diversity of animals, well worth a consideration.

Is all about the Dalmatian Coast road. This stretch of historic coastline is one of the most unspoiled in the world, with 79 islands and about 500 islets that run parallel to the coast and an abundance of roman ruins and medieval towns. But the real highlight of the day are the roads. Tonight, we stay on one of these islands overlooking Split on the other side of the bay.

Day 9 - Dubrovnik Day of Rest

speed 0 Miles

Every good holiday has a day spent exploring so a day off the bikes to explore the UNESCO World Heritage City of Dubrovnik. It’s a well preserved example of the late medieval city fortified with a magnificent curtain of walls surrounding its marble streets. Or you can just enjoy a lazy day enjoying the beech front hotel and swimming in either the pool or the sea whichever takes your fancy.

Day 10 - Dubrovnik to Trogir

Crossing the border into Bosnia and head north to Mostar, here we will stop at one of the most symbolic features of the Balkans, Mostar Bridge.

After Mostar, we head back to Croatia up to Split.

Following a swim in the sea and a fantastic evening of great food and drink, we awake today ready to ride back up the Dalmatian Coast Road.

Firstly we start the day riding around the Zugspitze and back into the Austrian Tyrol. Once back into Germany we ride the north banks of the Obersee Bodensee before heading west to Freiburg. Concluding the day with a little visit back into France and riding through the fabulous Route des Cretes in the Vosges Region to our hotel for the night. Nothing like a cool drink and chat on the sun drenched patio.
