Alps and Lakes (CAL 1701)

Friday, May 26, 2017 | Paul Kustermann / James Ashton | Europe

Alps and Lakes and lots of sunshine. A perfect mix for our guests from America, UK & Australia.

Day 5 (Kaprun to Erding)

The last mountain pass for the tour: The Sudelfeld pass
One of the last lakes we pass back to Erding, and also one of the smallest; the Wiesensee

Day 4 (Kaprun and Großglockner)

Pauls group on their way through Defreggental and up to Staller Sattel
James' group starting out through the Felbertauern Valley
A herd of Gallowy Cows on the way past the "Prägaten"
Two worlds, two philosophies, one and the same desire: BMW vs. Harley Davidson
James and the 'two up' team in Hinterbichl
Yep it's cold - but it has to be for a glacier to survive! That's Franz Josefs Glacier on the left side
Still a lot of snow on the Grossglockner High Alpine Road - best to stay close together to conserve body warmth!

Day 3 (Gmunden to Kaprun)

A beautiful start at the side of the lake
Time for a memorable moment - the whole group together
What colors, what magesty, what sublime beauty!
Arriving at Attersee, a "sound of music" moment. "The hills are alive with the" spirit of motorcycling.
Cafe Zauner... a truly royal delight!
Here a view of the promanade along the river "Traun" in Bad Ischl
... and the Kaisers Palace
And the infamous town that the Chinese found stunning enough to build a replica of: Hallstatt
One of those famous Edelweiss Picnics. Yippee
Nearly home for the night in Kaprun. In the background "Kitzsteinhorn" and tomorrow the majestic Groß Glockner

Day 2 on the road (Salzburg to Gmunden)

Lining up to hit the road...
Rod taking a walk above the snow line at the "Eagle's Nest"
James, the tour guide for the day, super excited about the spectacular views from the Eagle's Nest
A view of the Eagle's Nest from the summit above - so great to be able to explore this significant WWII era structure in it's almost untouched state. And the views are to die for!
The gang lined up at the Eagle's Nest - what a great stop!
One of the many lakes along the way
Our destiny for the day... a charming hotel right on the lake - with swans to greet us

Day 1 on the road (Erding to Salzburg)

Ligned up and ready to start!
Paul, the guide for the day with all his faithful follows ready to ride!
Nick on a fantastically colourful bike!
Idealic view from Herren Chiemsee
And suddenly, out of nowhere, this palace just pops out of the woods
A view from the Palace
The Chiemsee-Group at the fountain
Leaving the Palace with smiles and memories
...another happy couple
Photographing the photographer for that infinte "mirror" effect
On the boad heading back to mainland
... uh Huh
Tourguide in trusted company
This is what helments do when you leave them alone!
Tanja enthrawled by the city, crossing the bridge over the river Salzach.
Jan enthrawled by Tanja
Finally at our Destiny for the day, Mozart's place of birth.
Fortress and a man on top of the world... Hallmark of the City
Ready for a sit-down classy dinner at St. Petersstift - the oldes restaurant in Europe!!!
With a Mozart concert and opera performance to boot...!
When in Salzburg...
The fortress by night... on our way home at the end of a wonderful evening.
Our Hotel "The Golden Theater"
