Dalmatian Coast & Dubrovnik Motorcycle Tour 2019 Itinerary
Duration: 14 Days/13 Nights
Fully Guided Tour – Difficult
Day 1 –
Calais to Metz (275 milles)
Meeting point – Folkstone, Kent. Outside the EuroTunnel, motorcycle parking area.
Our motorcycle tour start with a train journey, following a quick briefing before we arrive in France and we are on our way. The first 80 miles are straight up the motorway to the standard coffee/breakfast stop. From here its just fun! 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 –
Metz to Lake Konstanz (280miles)
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 wee 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 –
Konstanz to Koizano (330 miles)
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 the Mendel Pass before gliding into Bolzano, our stop for the evening.
Day 4 –
Italy to Slovenia (230 miles)
Firstly we start with breakfast, then we will be heading east through the Dolomite Mountains for our morning, home to some of probably the most stunning scenery. After that, its not long before we are at our first mountain pass, Costalunga Pass, followed by Pordol Pass and Falzarego Pass. Stopping for a bite of lunch, we then cross the border into Slovenia and on to our hotel.
Day 5 –
Slovenia to Croatia (180 miles)
Day five is a relatively short day as we head past Postojna Caves (optional Stop) to the Croatian border and on to Plitvicka, once checked 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.
Day 6 –
Dalmatian Coast Rest Day
A well-deserved day of rest from the bikes and a chance to explore the UNESCO World Heritage site at Plitvice.
Day 7 –
Plitvice to Trogir (260 miles)
After breakfast, we will head west to pick up the Dalmatian Coast road. This stretch of historic coastline is one of the most unspoiled in the world, dotted with hundreds of islands, 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 8 –
Trogir to Dubrovnik (150 miles)
This is a motorcycle tour all about the Dalmatian Coast, and today that is mostly what you are going to see. With its smooth tarmac and a mix of every twist and turn you can imagine, great coastline views, this is a day like no other day.
Day 9 –
Dalmatian Coast Day of Rest
Every good holiday has a day spent exploring so a day off the bikes to explore the UNESCO World Heritage City of Dubrovnik with its war-torn abandoned Hotels. It’s a well preserved example of the late medieval city fortified with a magnificent curtain of walls surrounding its marble streets.
Day 10 –
Dubrovnik to Trogir (220 miles)
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. The 400-year-old bridge was brought down by a bomb in 1993 during the war, it has since been rebuilt and today Mostar is a vibrant cobbled street town full of quaint shops. After Mostar, we head back to Croatia up to Split.
Day 11 –
Trogia to Bled (310 miles)
Continuing along the Dalmatian Coast today, before heading into the remote Croatian Mountains. In addition to passing through the Paklenica National Park, we will also head into the Sjeverni Velebit National Park, home to the largest mountain range in Croatia. Crossing the border into Slovenia and onto our destination of Bled, set among the Julian Alps with its glacial lake, Bled is one of the most picturesque spots.
Day 12 –
Lake Bled to Memmingen (335 miles)
Day twelve is going to mostly be all about the riding the Austrian Tyrol. Heading north from Lake Bled we ride the Ljubelj Pass into Austria, and then moving on to the Grossglockner Pass. This is another personal favourite and definitely a bucket list item for any motorcycle touring enthusiast. Its a toll road with a super road surface that takes you up to the Kaiser- Franz – Josefs – Hohe Glacier and always worth a second ride. From here we cross into Germany for our hotel for the night.
Day 13 –
Germany to the Vosges (310 miles)
First of all yet another hearty breakfast, we are back on the bikes and heading west towards Lake Konstanz, following along the northern shore and onto Freiburg. After that, cross into France then, and up through the Vosges Mountains on the famous Route des Cretes, and finally to our overnight stay.
Day 14 –
Vosges to Calais (320 miles)
Sadly, it is time to head home through the Champagne Region of Epernay. Perhaps a little visit to the Grand Prix Circuit at Gueux near Reims followed by a quick blast up the motorway to Calais.
