The winding roads of England and Wales are the terrain of this motorcycle tour - so riding fun is guaranteed. You have a whole day to explore the typical English countryside of Cotswolds with its small cottages and villages before heading for Wales. You will reach the beautiful coast of Pembrokshire and through the Brecon-Beacons and Snowdonia National Parks. This means that steep coasts, secluded bays and barren mountain landscapes are just as much on the agenda as lush green valleys and pastures inhabited by sheep. The landscape and the attractive route are the main focus of this trip.
A journey of almost 1,800 km through England and Wales is on the agenda. The daily stages are moderate with max. 310 km and allow breaks and stops. In the Cotswolds you have two nights in a row, which allows you a day trip without luggage. The road conditions are generally good to very good. The tour can be booked in two different accommodation categories - with accommodation in hotels or bed & breakfast.
