Tour Information

This tour to the Austrian Tyrol offers the very best of the Alpine hospitality. The high mountain passes, dramatic views and the peaceful valleys make this a great motorcycle tour.

Your tour will start with a short channel crossing. A leisurely ride across Belgium will take you to your first overnight stop in Luxembourg. Your second stopover will be in the Black Forest.

A family run four star hotel is your base in Tyrol. It has modern and specious rooms as well as a fantastic restaurant. The hotel overlooks an alpine valley surrounded by the pine forests and mountain peaks. This idyllic spot will provide you with an ideal location to enjoy the panoramic views. A nice way to relax and reflect on the day’s events.

From here you will have the opportunity to ride into Switzerland, Italy as well as Germany. Day trips will also include rides over the local mountain passes. Such as Arlberg, Silveretta and of course Stelvio. The Piller, Ressia and the Glacier road are also a good choice. It is also possible to arrange a ride out with the hotel owner. For independent riders there is a great selection of maps as well as road books. The hotel staff will be happy to assist you in choosing the best ride. The weather changes quickly in the Alps so please keep yourself informed.

On your rest day you can enjoy the hotel facilities. These include a swimming pool and a spa. For the outdoor enthusiasts there is a tennis court and a fleet of e-bikes available for hire.

The secure underground garage has a jet wash and bike repair facilities. The hotel is also the official BMW testing center. For a fee it is possible to hire a brand new bike.

Finally you will return back the UK via Germany and France.

Please note for those with longer journeys alternative crossing can be arranged.
