We have also extended it by three days. In doing so, we have not limited ourselves to Croatia and Slovenia, but are also moving into Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The journey leads us from Germany over some of the most beautiful mountain passes in Austria first into the Slovenian Alps. From there we continue to Croatia, where we visit the Plitvice Lakes and ride south on the beautiful coastal road. A detour over the mountains takes us right into the heart of Herzegovina, where we visit the famous "Old Bridge" in Mostar. Back in Croatia we will have a look at Dubrovnik and Split and of course the coastal road between these two famous old cities.

We have also thought of something special for the return journey. From Split we take the night ferry to Ancona in Italy and travel through the Apennines, the Dolomites and the Timmelsjoch back to Germany.

Tour itinerary:

Day 1: Arrival in Bad Reichenhall.

Departure at 7.00 a.m. from the Geismühle West service station (A57), joint journey via motorway to the intermediate hotel near Bad Reichenhall.

Individual arrival possible

Day 2: Via Nockalm Road and Vrsic Pass to Slovenia.

Via the Radstädter Tauern and the Nockalm Road our way leads first to the south of Austria. From there, we travel over the Vrsic-/Werschetz-Pass to Slovenia and to our intermediate hotel in Bovec.

Day 3: Through the mountainous hinterland to the Plitvice Lakes.

Today's stage leads us, mostly over small and winding side roads, through Slovenia into the mountainous hinterland of Croatia and to our next stopover hotel in the Plitvice Lakes National Park.

Day 4: Plitvice lakes and coastal road.

In the morning we explore the beautiful nature and impressive landscape of the Plitvice Lakes on foot and by boat. In the afternoon, we will take the historic Josephina road and the Vratnik Pass down to the coastal road along the Croatian Adriatic Sea. We follow this road to Starigrad Paklenica, where our next intermediate hotel is located directly at the sea.

Day 5: Over the mountains to Mostar.

Today we ride over the mountains from Croatia to Bosnia-Herzegovina. The destination of our today's stage is the city of Mostar, which gained sad fame during the Bosnian war due to the destruction of the Stari most (Old Bridge) built in the 16th century. In the meantime, the bridge, which is well worth seeing, has been rebuilt, thus restoring the traditional connection between the Christian-influenced western and Muslim eastern parts of the city.

Day 6: Over the mountains to Dubrovnik.

Today's stage leads us over some mountain ranges of the Dinaric Alps back down to the Croatian Adriatic. Our intermediate hotel in Dubrovnik enables us to explore the old town of the city, which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and is often referred to as the "Pearl of the Adriatic".

Day 7: Day of rest.

Today we will have a rest day, because motorcycling can be exhausting.

On this day there is the opportunity to explore Dubrovnik extensively.

Day 8: Via the coastal road to Split.

We only have a little more than 200 kilometres of coastal road behind us before we reach our stage destination Split. This leaves us plenty of time to have a good look at the "capital of Dalmatia". In the evening we board the ferry, which takes us via Nach to Ancona in Italy.

Day 9: From Ancona to the Apennines.

From Ancona we first ride west into the Apennines and then on small and very curvy roads through the mountains to the north. Our intermediate hotel is the beautifully restored Palazzo del Piano that was converted into a hotel.

Day 10: Through the Apennines.

Today's stage also leads us further over the mountains of the Apennines in a north-westerly direction. The little roads are so curvy that every now and then there is the desire for a straight line longer than 50 meters. Our current intermediate hotel is located in the mountains south of Modena, between the regions of Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany.

Day 11: Visit to the Ferrari Museum and ride to the Dolomites.

After visiting the Ferrari Museum in Modena, we take the motorway (toll!) through the Po Valley to Lake Garda. We cross this lake by ferry before we ride along the Lago di Valvestino and the Lago d'Idro to our intermediate hotel at the Lago di Molveno.

Day 12: Via Timmelsjoch and Hahntennjoch to Pfronten.

Today's stage leads us through the Ulten Valley to Meran and from there over the Timmelsjoch into the Ötztal. We continue over the Hahntennjoch and through the Lechtal to our last intermediate hotel in Kempten.

Day 13: Journey home.

After breakfast we will start the journey home together or individually.
