Tour Information

Black Forest Self Guided Motorcycle Tour is designed for those who appreciate the finer things in life.

Covered with tall fir trees and spruces, the Black Forest is one of Germany’s most picturesque regions.

After a morning crossing to Calais, you’ll ride towards our first overnight destination in the Champagne Region of France.

The next morning you’ll continue our journey into the Black Forest, one of the most attractive biking destinations in Europe and often referred to as a paradise for motorcycle touring.

For the next three nights you’ll base yourself in the southern region of the Black Forest in one of our biker-friendly hotels, with an excellent restaurant and well stocked wine cellar.

From here you can explore Lakes Titisee and Schluchsee, just the place to treat yourself with a slice (or two) of Black Forest gateau. Take a ride to Feldberg, the highest mountain in the Black Forest, visit the historic town of Freiburg and the Roman spa city of Baden-Baden.

Also not to be missed, a day trip to visit Triberg the highest waterfalls in the region and an open air museum with the Black Forest’s oldest house dating back to the XVII century.

While you are there why not pop just next door and have an exciting toboggan ride (1400 m long) which will cause a scream or two, even amongst the bravest ones?

The Black Forest cannot be mentioned without making reference to the most famous biking road in Germany, the B500. This road is engineered in a true German fashion with fantastic surfaces and long cambered sweeping bends.

From the Black Forest you cross back over to the Champagne region where the last day before returning to UK will be shared between visiting an XVIII century chateau and a guided tour of one the region’s most famous champagne houses. At the chateau you’ll be shown around by the curator who has an extensive knowledge of local history and the champagne tradition.

If this sounds too good to be true, why not join this tour and find out for your self?
