Alps Extreme 4AE

Austria   |  Italy

Motorcycle touring on small hidden roads through the heart of the Alps!

For more than 3 decades we have toured the Alps, the most attractive motorcycling region on our planet. All this time, we saw areas we wanted to explore and sights we wanted to see, but did not dare because of the riding conditions; we thought they were too tough for our Edelweiss motorcyclists from around the world.

But we know there are riders who want to experience those bigger challenges. So, we designed a Ride4Fun tour that fulfills all these longings: tough riding, long days, challenging roads, riding up to incredibly high mountain passes and spending the nights in hotels with local flair, where the view is unobstructed all the way to the glaciers, the pastures and the moon and the stars. As all Ride4Fun tours run without a luggage van, we carry our valued belongings on the bikes, the usual way for touring people.

We start in Innsbruck, Tyrol and ride all the way south on beautiful and challenging roads to South Tyrol in Italy, and then back through East Tyrol to Innsbruck. We cross famous alpine passes like Stelvio Pass and then take hidden, very narrow, very challenging passes like Passo Duran. Here we breathe Alpine air and history like we’ve never done before!

Testimonials

Alps Extreme

Greetings Edelweiss staff: I want to take some time now to say that it was a total dream come true last week experiencing the Alps Extreme motorcycle tour with Anthony Fairweather and Manuel Reheis. I first read in RIDER Magazine 1980 in the classified section about Edelweiss motorcycle tours. Of course being only 17 years old, that was a dream. Last week that dream came true. The two tour guides were as splendid as they can be. Professional and fun ... that is a nice package mix. They actually complement each other with their personalities and riding styles: Safety first and fun next. You have two great persons in your company and please let Anthony know that I will be his Wingman anyplace/anytime. Best safe & fun ride wishes to both Manu and Tony on future tours.

Alps Extreme Custom Tour

I am quite sure that everybody in our group has the same feelings as I do regarding our Alps Extreme Special Tour. Despite the bad weather that showed no mercy towards us, we had a great time and enjoyed every minute of the trip. Tony and Björn were so nice and helpful and made all of our lives much easier, adapting the tour according to the possibilities throughout the day. We all hope to get together again on a new tour with you guys and this time we will hope for good weather. Enjoy your summer as we are going to enjoy our winter.

Alps Extreme

The Alps Extreme tour runs through some of the most beautiful and challenging roads you can find in the Alps. You’ll ride hours and hours through breathtaking landscape, devouring hundreds and hundreds of curves and hairpins every day. If you like to ride your bike on twisty mountain roads and you are never tired of doing it all over again, believe me, this is your tour! You will discover famous mountain passes like the Stelvio, the Gavia, the Großglockner and many, many others. The most interesting aspect of the tour is that the route often takes almost unknown roads that only locals (or the Edelweiss tour guide) can find. This means that you’ll ride (and see places) that probably you'll not be able to discover if you ride by your own. In this regard, please, accept my suggestion: Don't be lazy and use the so-called 'rest day' to follow the tour guide through the great roads that brings you from Levico Therme to Lake Garda and then to Lake Idro. Trust me, you'll not regret this choice. Ok, I'm telling too much. However, I want you to understand that, if you'll take part in this tour, you'll ride in a kind of amusement park for bikers. This is definitely NOT a tour for rookies. You need to have a good riding experience to handle that kind of roads safe and sound. The tour guide Manuel did a great job guiding us safely to the next overnight stop (thanks Manuel) and the group was just FANTASTIC - I was lucky to have had such a great bunch of people on my tour, with whom I could share this amazing experience. The hotels were pleasant and offered a relaxed stay and food was great also. Last but not least: The setup of the tour was easy, thanks to the very competent and polite Edelweiss staff. It's almost like having a personal assistant (thanks Viktoria for your patience) that helps you finding the right arrangements for your trip: Flights, shuttle service, extra nights and anything else one could look for. If you like to ride your bike along the most amazing roads all day long - don't hesitate doing the Alps Extreme tour and enjoy.
