European Tours 

Alpine Spectacular

Join us for this tour of a lifetime through some of the most breathtaking regions of all Europe. Challenge your riding skills and your camera skills as we traverse mountain passes one after the other, See the inspirational castles, the postcard towns and bustling cities. From lush green valleys to snow capped  glaciers, on four lane Autobahns and single track shingle roads, this tour has it all and more.
A fully escorted tour, with bike, accommodation, meals, mapping and guidance all the way.
Running in early September, when the crowds have all gone home, and before the snows start to close up the passes, this is definitely the time to see this region in all its glory...spaces are very limited as we like to keep the group small, so don't delay on this one.

The tour starts and ends in Prague where we have bikes waiting for you, you simply fly in and make your way to the hotel where you will be met by your guide.

For those who wish, we will arrange an informal meeting on the evening before the tour start to allow you to meet your fellow travelers and guide.
For those of you who prefer to use your own bike, there is the opportunity to ride out to the tour start point with us. This will then become an extended tour where we also take in the best of the German and Swiss tour routes, and return via the lower Swiss/French alps, forming a 2 week tour . Please note, this will only apply as an extension of tour 1 (unless demand dictates otherwise)
Dates:
Tour 1 Saturday 2nd September to Saturday 9th September

We suggest that you plan your arrival in Prague for sometime on the day prior to the tour start date, this will allow you to rest up and perhaps see some of the beautiful city before the tour begins. The tour starts after an early breakfast on day one, we will take you to the bikes and get all the relevant paperwork out of the way before a short briefing on riding in Europe and the days route.
