Our start- & destination hotel is located in the Rosenheim area near Munich. We drive through the mountains of the Austrian "Tauern" to Carinthia and through the mountain range of the Karawanken to Slovenia. From here a day trip starts to the Julian Alps to the famous "Mangart" pass (altitude: 2.679m) and along the lake Bohinjsko jezero near Bled back to Kranjska Gora. The next day we continue through the Triglav National Park, over the Vršič pass into the Friuli Dolomites or also called Carnic Alps, to our next hotel in Italy. After another day tour through the varied and fantastic mountain world of these 3 alpine regions, we return to our comfortable hotel in Rosenheim via the Grossglockner (toll obliged).

Tour course:

Day 1: Arrival to Rosenheim near Munich (from the Ruhr area approx. 720km)

Individual arrival at the starting hotel for the first (in between) overnight stay.

Since this day is a Sunday, Saturday is a good day to divide the course into two stages. Welcome, dinner and overnight stay in Rosenheim (this hotel will also be our final hotel, so that a journey e.g. with motorcycle trailer is possible).

Day 2: From Rosenheim via the "Nockberge" (Ö) and the Karawanken to Kranjska Gora (SVN) (approx. 350 km)

Today we drive along the beautiful national park "Hohe Tauern" over the high mountain passes in southern direction. The famous and beautiful "Nockalm Road" with the Glockenhütte (2,024m) invites you to a lunch break. Further south we are welcomed by the Karawanken mountain range. It is the eastern continuation of the Carnic Alps and has a length of approx. 120 km with a width of 20 to 40 km. South of Villach we reach the border to Slovenia via the Wurzenpass. Overnight stay and dinner in Kranjska Gora.

Day 3: Round trip: Priglav, Julian Alps & the Mangart Pass (approx. 295 km)

In the early morning we start without luggage in direction west and make first a small excursion to Italy. Along the Lago and Passo Del Priglav we enter the beautiful Mangart pass road on the Slovenian side, which brings us to an altitude of 2,679m. From the top you have a beautiful view of the highest mountain in Slovenia, Triglav (2.864m). Full of curves and with many photo motives that invite you to stop, we go down the cul-de-sac again. With another short detour to Italy, to the Julian Prealps (province Udine) with its small forest roads, we return to Slovenia. Shortly after the border we drive east towards Bled, to the lake Bohinjsko Jezero, where we have a coffee break and then make our way back. Overnight stay and dinner in Kranjska Gora.

Day 4: Through the Triglav National Park, via the Vršič Pass into the Carnic Alps to Ravascletto, Italy (approx. 280 km)

After we have secured our luggage well, we enter the wild Julian Alps in the National Park "Triglav", which is named after the 2.864m high mountain of the same name. The highest mountain pass of Slovenia, the Vršič-Pass (1.611m), awaits us here. We now continue west to Italy, via the Sella Nevea and Sella di Cereschiatis. We cross the river Tagliamento and arrive in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region with an area of curves that make us dizzy. Overnight stay and dinner in our next 2-day domicile in Ravascletto.

Day 5: Round trip: through the mountain regions Friuli Dolomites and Carnic Alps (approx. 350km)

The next morning we start again without heavy luggage first over the "local mountain" Monte Zoncola towards the west. Over the Passo Larvadet and Sella di Rioda we turn south to Lago Di Barcis, where we have our lunch break. We now approach the Venetian region and the Dolomite massif with its beautiful peaks, then turn right to the Passo Tre Croci and via the Passo Zovo and Sappada we return to our hotel. Overnight stay and dinner again in Ravascletto.

Day 6: Over the Großglockner (Ö) back to Rosenheim (D) (approx. 300 km)

After breakfast we take the last "common" stage under our bikes. The path leads us along the most beautiful roads into the mountain range of the "Hohe Tauern". After the Plöcken Pass we are back in Austria and continue over the Gailberg Saddle and the Iselsberg Pass to the Glockner Group. The Großglockner is with a height of 3.798m the highest mountain in Austria. The toll road Großglockner-Hochalpenstraße winds its way up to the Franz-Josefs-Haus (2,363 m) on the Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe. A short detour to the summit of the Edelweißspitze at 2,572m is also worthwhile, because there the "Bikers Point" waits with a great panoramic view of the surrounding 3,000m peaks. Via Kitzbühel and at the foot of the "Wilder Kaiser" we drive along the Walchsee back to our starting hotel in Rosenheim. Here we let the evening end cheerfully, with many great impressions and memories ! Overnight stay, farewell and dinner in Rosenheim.

Day 7: From Rosenheim we go home to the Ruhr area (approx. 720km)

Unfortunately we have to say goodbye after breakfast today and start our individual journey home. Since the weekend is just around the corner, there might be a chance for one or the other passenger to add another night in between for a relaxed way home. We are looking forward to seeing you soon !
