Because, honestly, how many pass roads are normally done during a week's motorcycle holiday? There may be quite a few, but we want to ride more than 50 (in words: fifty) Alpine passes in only seven days!
This tour goes across the Alps, starting in Bad Reichenhall, Germany, and ending in Lyon, France.
To enumerate all pass roads here would be beyond the scope of this page, but of course there are such famous pass roads as the Col de la Bonette, the Stilfserjoch and the Großglockner-Hochalpenstraße. Altogether we ride 42 of the 50 most beautiful alpine passes and among them are of course the 10 highest! On the tour we cross alpine passes in Austria, Italy, Switzerland and France.
For you to enjoy this special motorcycle tour in a relaxed way, we take care of all the 'surrounding': eight overnight stays with half board, luggage transport to the hotels and our well-known beverage service for on the way. All you have to do is ride...
But don't wait too long with the booking, because we have limited this motorcycle tour to a maximum of 21 motorcycles in three groups.
Day 1: Arrival stage to Bad Reichenhall, Germany
At 7.00 am departure from the service area Geismühle West (A57) to the ****-Wyndham Grand Hotel in Bad Reichenhall.
We stop every 220 km where you can join the group.
Of course you can also travel individually to Bad Reichenhall.
Day 2: Bad Reichenhall to Cortina d'Ampezzo.
Today, along with seven other passes, one of the highlights of the tour is on the road map: The Grossglockner High Alpine Road. But also the smaller passes in Friaul are worth seeing and offer a lot of fun! Overnight stay is at the ***-Hotel Villa Argentina near Cortina d'Ampezzo.
Day 3: Cortina d'Ampezzo to Bormio.
Over the Passo di Giau we will go to the next highlight of this stage, the so-called 'Sella round' (which we ride counterclockwise!) over the four passes Pordoijoch, Campolongo-Sattel, Grödner Joch and Sellajoch. We continue over the Karer Pass and the Mendel Pass to the notorious Stilfserjoch. Overnight stay is at Hotel Vallechiara near Bormio.
Day 4: Bormio to Andermatt.
The Passo del San Bernardino is only one of the eight great passes over which our stage today leads from Bormio to Andermatt. On our way there we of course have a duty-free fuel stop in Livigno. Overnight stay is in the ***-Hotel Monopol-Metropol in Andermatt.
As we do not use a motorway in Switzerland, no vignette is required!
Day 5: Andermatt to Cluses.
Our today's stage leads us a good piece "motorway-free" through Switzerland up to France; more exactly: to Morzine, whereby we of course also have the St.-Gotthard-Pass under our wheels (we ride the "old" road, also known as "Tremola")! Overnight stay is at the ***-Hotel Le 4C in Cluses.
Day 6: Morzine to Le Lauzet-Ubaye.
From the Col de la Madeleine we go to the Col du Galibier today. This is one of the ten highest Alpine passes on today's schedule ... along with nine other great pass roads, six of which belong to the Route des Grandes Alpes. Overnight stay is at the ***-Hotel La Lauzetane in Le Lauzet-Ubaye.
Day 7: Le Lauzet-Ubaye to Manosque.
The highlights of today's stage are the highest pass in the Alps, the Col de la Bonette and the famous Grand Canyon du Verdon... and in between there are seven more passes and beautiful gorges, including the Gorges de Daluis! Overnight stay is in the ***-Hotel le Sud in Manosque.
Day 8: Manosque to Lyon.
This stage leads us through the Drôme first and on through the Vercors, where we cross the Col de Rousset and the Cirque de Combe Laval.
To make "meters", we continue along the motorway to our last intermediate hotel near Lyon.
Day 9: Journey home.
Joint or individual journey back to Krefeld or your home.
We reserve the right to change programs, routes or hotels.
