Eastern Europe Guided Motorcycle Tour

Tour Information

In order to maximise our time in Eastern Europe once again we’ll be using the overnight motorrail services.

Our first destination will be in Slovenia. We’ll stay in a three star hotel situated in the Triglav National Park. A small alpine hamlet overlooking a peaceful valley and surrounded by dramatic mountain peaks of the Julian Alps.

Next with the beautiful Karavanke mountain range behind us and river Drava as our guide we enter the Panonian Plains of Hungary. Our base is the little spa resort on the shores of Lake Balaton.

Our furthest destination on this tour is our hometown in Serbia. This is a historic town built by Austro-Hungarian Empress Maria Teresia during the 18th century. Our accommodation is a four star hotel in the town center.

From Serbia we’ll cross into Croatia and river Drava, our guide once again, will take us to Zagorje region of Croatia. Our base is another spa resort located in the forests of Zagorje hills.

The next morning, we’ll follow winding roads through the Zagorje Hills towards the breathtaking Plitvice National Park. After the visit to the park our journey continues by descending in the direction of the Adriatic coast and to our next overnight destination, a four star hotel located near a small fishing port.

Our final destination in Croatia is the costal resort of Porec. On our day off we can visit the remains of the Roman amphitheatre in Pula, the old town of Rovinj, Hum (the smallest city in Europe numbering only seventeen residents) and the medieval hilltop town of Groznjani which is also an artist colony.
