Tour Information

This is a splendid tour of relaxed discovery, high mountain passes, dramatic landscapes, peaceful valleys and the very best of the alpine hospitality.

Your holiday starts with a short channel crossing and a leisurely ride towards your first overnight stop in Luxembourg followed by a second stopover in the Black Forest region of Germany.

Your destination is a four star traditional chalet style hotel where you’ll be welcomed by your hosts Charly and Karin, keen motorcyclists them selves, will ensure that you experience the best of warm Tirolean hospitality and your stay in their hotel is a memorable one.

The hotel is situated at the very beginning of the Kaunertal Glacier Road overlooking an alpine valley surrounded by the thick pine forest, green alpine meadows and towering snow caped mountain peaks. This idyllic spot provides you with an ideal location to enjoy the panoramic views over the surrounding mountains and to relax and reflect on the day’s events.

The legendary reputation of the Weisseespitze as a “Perfect Biker Hotel“ comes from their philosophy “exclusive is inclusive” which is reflected in their professional presentation and the unique all-inclusive services.

All rooms are en-suite and you’ll enjoy your hearty buffet breakfast and fantastic four course evening meal in a restaurant that is decorated in a traditional Tirolean style. Every afternoon there is also complimentary afternoon tea, coffee and cake in a hotel’s guest lounge served just at the right time as you return from your day trips.

From here you’ll have the opportunity to ride into Switzerland, Italy or even Bavaria in Germany if you fancy it. The day excursions can include rides to the Arlberg pass, Silveretta pass, Stelvio pass, Piller pass, Ressia pass and the Weissseespitze Glacier. While you are staying at Weisseespitze it is possible to arrange a guided ride with Charly or if you prefer to explore independently you may choose your rides from a great selection of maps, road books and tourist information leaflets.

If you prefer it you can park your bike and rest for a day or two and enjoy the hotel’s facilities that include tennis courts, swimming pool, spa, beauty and massage room and bar.

The secure underground garage contains bike jet wash and repair facilities if required. The hotel is also the official testing centre and for a nominal fee it is possible to hire a brand new BMW motorcycle.

With further two overnight stops you’ll return back to the UK via Black Forest and Aube region of France.

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