11 day motorcycle tour of Austria
This is a Point-to-Point tour with two 3-night locations in the mountains. It features spectacular rides exploring some of Europe’s highest mountain passes.
Tour duration: 11 days /10 nights.
Explore the mountainous heart of western Europe, beginning with rides through France to rest in Champagne overnight, and on the second night a stopover in the Black Forest in southern Germany. On the third day you will ride over the Reschen Pass, the first of many spectacular mountain roads, to arrive at your first three-night location, a traditional 4-Star hotel, in a picturesque village at the heart of the Austrian Tyrol.
Motorcycling in the Austrian Tyrol
The Tyrolean hotel is very comfortable, and all rooms have en-suite facilities. The restaurant serves a large buffet breakfast and a four-course evening menu, with additional salad and dessert buffets. After a day’s ride relax in the garden, on the terrace or in the hotel bar, or perhaps take a dip in the indoor swimming pool or visit the sauna and solarium. Massages and beauty treatments are also available at a supplement.
Situated in a village close to Austria’s mountainous borders, you can ride in all directions into Germany, Switzerland and Italy. Explore some of Europe’s best twisty, riding roads including the famous Bernina, Brenner and Arlberg passes and the lesser known Fern, Ofen and Julier passes. Our partner MCi Tours, will prepare a detailed Tour Pack for you which covers all aspects of your motorcycling holiday. A wide selection of route plans is included for ride-outs to places such as the renowned Stelvio pass with its 47 hairpins, just across the Italian border.
Motorcycling in Zell am See
After leaving the Tyrol you will ride eastward to Zell am See, Austria’s scenic lakeside, mountain resort in SalzburgerLand. Here you will be based for three nights at a beautifully located 4-Star hotel. The proprietor is a keen motorcyclist and has suggested some great routes to our friends at MCi Tours, which have been added to your Tour Pack. From Zell you might head further eastward to visit ancient Salzburg or perhaps southward to ride the mighty Grossglockner mountain pass – the highest in Austria (2504m). All travellers on this tour in 2018 will receive a Zell am See-Kaprun Summer Card upon arrival in Zell. This provides free or reduced entry to many of the local visitor attractions.
