Program:

Day 1: Arrival at the intermediate hotel.

Departure at 7.00 a.m. at the Geismühle West (A57) service station in southern direction for the joint journey to Weil am Rhein.

Individual arrival possible.

Day 2: Over the Gotthard pass to Genoa to the ferry.

From our intermediate hotel in Weil am Rhein we ride over the Gotthard pass to the ferry to Genoa.

In Switzerland a vignette is required and in Italy tolls may apply.

Day 3: From Olbia to the base hotel near Arbatax.

After our arrival in Sardinia we ride in a nice day trip from Olbia to our base hotel Arbatasar.

Day 4: "Ghost town" Gairo and Monte Perda Liana.

Today's day tour takes us to the "ghost town" of Gairo and along the smallest mountain roads around the striking Monte Perda Liana. We continue to Lago Flumendosa and through the southern mountain world back to the base hotel near Arbatax.

Day 5: Through the Gennargentu mountains.

Today we ride inland through the Gennargentu mountains to the former "bandit's nest" Orgosolo. We continue via Fonni, the highest mountain village in Sardinia, to Aritzo, where we have lunch in a typical agriturismo. Via Ussassai and Lanusei we then return to the base hotel near Arbatax.

Day 6: Day of rest.

Day at leisure ... to, for example, just relax on the beach or take a short boat trip across the Lagoon Lake Stagno di Tortolì.

Day 7: To the Gulf of Cagliari.

The southeast of Sardinia down to the Gulf of Cagliari is our tour destination today. The way there leads us through a paradise of curves along the coast, back we ride again through the mountains of the Gennargentu mountain range.

Day 8: Day trip to Santa Teresa Gallura to the ferry and crossing to Corsica.

It's goodbye to Sardinia again. But not without having made an extensive day trip through the centre of the island on our way to the harbour of Santa Teresa Gallura. In the late afternoon we will board the ferry that will take us to Corsica, where we will spend the night.

Day 9: Across the island to the base hotel.

Today we ride to our base hotel on Corsica, the La Lagune.

Day 10: To the west coast of Corsica.

Today's day trip takes us 'across the island' to Calvi, on the coastal road to the Gulf of Girolata, through the Spelunca Gorge and over the Col de Vergio back to the base hotel.

Day 11: Through the mountains of Corsica.

Today starts with the ride on the narrow headland between the Lagnunensee Etang de Biguglia and the sandy beach of Plage de Marana. After this "flat stage" there are "bends till the end" on our way to the mountains. One of the day's destinations is the panoramic road through the Valée d'Asco.

Day 12: Day of rest.

Day at leisure ... to, for example, just lie around relaxed on the beach or take a little walk.

Day 13: Across the island to the ferry.

As our ferry to Toulon does not depart until the evening, we have time for a day tour to the middle east of the island, whereby we will again ride on many little roads. The most south-western point is Ghisoni. In an elegant arc to the north-east we reach Bastia in the evening, where we board the ferry to Toulon.

Day 14: Through the Maritime Alps to the intermediate hotel.

From Toulon we ride via Saint-Tropez and Entrevaux, passing the Lac de Castillon to Castellane to our intermediate hotel.

Day 15: Through Vercors to Lyon.

Through the Département Drôme, one of the most beautiful areas of France, and the wild and rugged Vercors with its many passes, we will travel to the last intermediate hotel in Best Western Saphir**** in Lyon.

Day 16: Return home.

Joint or individual return journey to Krefeld or home.
