If you can't get enough of curves and switchbacks, then you will love this tour, however, you should not underestimate this tour in any case. Good driving skills are a must for this fantastic tour. This tour has it all: winding roads, technical switchbacks, beautiful hairpin turns with breathtaking scenery across the Alps and Dolomites. We ride from Edelweiss HQ south to Lake Garda. Then we head back north through the Domolites until we arrive back at Edelweiss HQ.
Prepare for long days of riding on the best roads the Alps and Domlomites have to offer. Truly a roller coaster ride for the bravest riders among you.
And off we go, enjoy!
Our first stop on this tour is the winter sports resort of Kühtai with the pass of the same name, which offers a perfect introduction to alpine motorcycling.
In the afternoon the driving highlight of the day follows, the fantastic Kaunertalstrasse. This offers an almost perfect mix of curves, straights and breathtaking views over the Alps and leads us up to the glacier.
Today the Stelvio Pass awaits us, the second highest pass in the Alps. The 48 hairpin bends of the north ramp of the pass demand all your driving skills and your full concentration. An absolute highlight for every motorcyclist! After the successful conquest of the Stelvio Pass, the Passo di Gavia and the Passo Tonale are waiting for us as a "little encore".
We leave South Tyrol and drive on to Trentino. From now on there is only pure Italy!
Winding roads through vineyards and apple orchards lead us to one of the deepest gorges in the Alps, the Sarche Gorge. The beautiful drive to Monte Bondone proves with what passion the Italians build roads.
This rest day is something very special. We will drive south to Lake Garda into a completely different world. It will seem as if you are not in the Alps, but on the Mediterranean Sea. The route first follows the shore to Limone before climbing steeply up into the mountains for the first time. At the highest point we enjoy the view over the lake. When you take off your helmet after the next 800 curves at Lake Idro, you will hardly find a fellow rider who doesn't have a satisfied grin on his face.
Today's route offers a special challenge for motorcyclists: seven passes with countless hairpin bends and curves will literally make you dizzy. Rather unknown passes like the Duran Pass and the Cereda Pass are on the program. The unbeatable advantage: There is hardly any traffic. Plus a landscape like something out of a picture book.
For the really tough guys, this route offers everything your heart desires. After a few kilometers on well-maintained roads, we turn onto the Würzjoch, an unknown single-trail pass with a great view. Then we continue over the Jaufenpass to the Timmeljoch, where the highest motorcycle museum in the world unfortunately burned down in January 2021 and is currently waiting to be rebuilt. But even without the museum, the Timmeljoch, our last pass on the way back to Edelweiss HQ, is a driving and scenic highlight.
