Lake Garda & the Dolomites

Tyrol, Austria, Europe

The Dolomites... the stunning granite peaks, fantastic roads, Italian hospitality and food and wine, picturesque mountain villages and ski resorts.... It really is picture postcard scenery - Italy with a Tirolean feel to it! Combine that with our friendly, long standing hotel partner who is used to catering for motorcycling guests and you have the ideal combination for a brilliant Italian tour. Our base for three nights is in the very heart of the Dolomites and surrounded by some of the most enchanting peaks of this mountain range. The village has a range of bars, restaurants and shops. Our three star hotel is very motorcycle-friendly and offers garage parking (you may wish to use the bike jet wash or drying room facilities) and is in a wonderful position beneath the famous Gruppo Sella mountain range. Breakfast is an ample buffet and for dinner it's a four course menu plus a salad buffet. There's a sauna and whirlpool for you at the end of a long day and massage facilities are available for a fee. Popular with local motorcyclists, you will enjoy a beer on the terrace overlooking the town while discussing the merits of the various motorcycle marques that you will see during the day. The picture of the Repsol Fireblade gives you the idea, but MotoGuzzis, Ducatis and BMWs are equally at home on the glorious roads in the immediate vicinity of our Hotel. From this base you can ride the Great Dolomite Road all the way to Cortina d’Ampezzo or take your choice of some fabulous passes and rides out directly accessible from the hotel. There are planned rides out into the Dolomites - a vast mountainous terrain offering dramatic landscapes of lowland valleys, secluded villages and precipitous rock faces - and the odd twisty road. The scenery really has to be seen to be believed... Lake Garda has many attractions... you can take a boat trip the length of the lake or take a lakeside ride through the many delightful villages that look out over its tranquil waters. Visit the castle at Malcesine, head off south to Sirmione and work your way back along the west coast of the lake past superb villas and period properties that take you back to the 1890s - a period of elegant extravagance. Explore the twists and curves heading north past Riva Del Garda into the Trentino Region to explore some great biking roads leading up to the ski resort of Madonna di Campiglio. Venice is but a short ride away and it would be a shame not to spend a day in romantic Verona the setting for Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet. Book a night at the Opera in the atmospheric surroundings of the Roman Amphitheatre at Verona - now that really is a once in a lifetime experience. We stay for four nights in a super three star hotel only a short walk from the northern shores of Lake Garda and the resort centre. We have two one night stopovers in Metz and Augsburg outward and Ulm and Metz on the return journey so that the daily mileages do not exceed 290 miles on primary routes. If you like riding your bike and want to travel to an interesting destination with fantastic scenery then this is the tour for you. Couples welcome - there really is something for everyone on this tour!
