The Switzerland Tour
We will travel south from Zeebrugge stopping off to visit the War Memorial at Thiepval, in memory of the 36th Ulster Division that fought in the Battle of the Somme. Our first nights hotel is in the Champagne region of France.
We then have one long day, mostly on Motorways, to get right into the heart of Switzerland where we will stay for the next three nights in the same hotel. There will be day trips to ride over several famous mountain passes, visit an ice cave and various other attractions. If you wish to have a day or two off the bike exploring, shopping, riding mountain railways or cable cars (if they are running), you are free to do so too.
The Stelvio Pass in Italy (48 hairpins!), is the next destination on this tour. We'll travel east through the Swiss mountains, stopping overnight just before we reach the Italian border. The next morning we'll cross into Italy and storm the pass which is one of the highest in the Alps. We'll then cross the Italian/Swiss border a couple of times on our way to beautiful Lake Maggiore where we will spend two nights. Once again there will be mountain passes for those up to it, or if you wish to take a trip on the lake steamer, go shopping in the busy town of Locarno or just enjoy a few drinks beside the almost tropical lake you are free to do so.
The last part of this tour will have us traverse the Simplon Pass and ride close to Mont Blanc on our way back into France where we will spend a couple of days travelling north, back to Zeebrugge and the first of the two ferries to get us back to Ireland.
Some touring experience is essential for this tour as we will be covering something in the region of 2500 miles.

I highly recommend this tour. Amazing views and scenery with some great breathe taking roads. The tour included some visits to some nice little historical towns. The group was very friendly and welcoming. The tour was extremely well organised and professional. Thank you for a great time.
