Mediterranean Alps Extreme 4SA

France   |  Italy

The charming French Riviera, Cinque Terre and the Mediterranean Alps are waiting for you!

Looking at a map of the French Maritime Alps will give you an idea of the riding that awaits you and your motorcycle! You will notice the number of passes and curves, leaving only one question to be answered: Will there be enough time to cover all of this most attractive European motorcycle paradise?

“Curve collectors” can add a good number to their collection. Climbing some of the famous French Tour de France passes like Col de Turini, which is also known from the rally Monte Carlo, you will get an idea of what the cyclists must stand. We are looking for a different pleasure – enjoying the flow of curves on our bikes! A quite different ride awaits us at the picturesque Cinque Terre and the French Riviera, which are connected by the famous Via Julia Augusta, along the Ligurian coast. Experiencing unique cities like Monaco, Nice and Genoa complete the amazing ride between France and Italy.

Mediterranean Alps Extreme

In our opinion Edelweiss Bike Travel is a first-class motorcycle tour operator with very qualified personnel. We have done six tours with Edelweiss already in different countries and it doesn't matter where you choose to ride, you won't be disappointed. Beautiful, interesting and exciting daily routes have been part of all tours as well as tour guides who were experienced riders and who did care so much about the needs of the various groups. We are already looking forward to another tour with Edelweiss.
