Our weekend adventure is about to start!

Day 1: From Seefeld to Lienz




Welcome to our Honda Alpine Tour which will take us in 3 days from Seefeld in Tyrol first to Lienz in East Tyrol and then via Bolzano in South Tyrol back to our starting point.

Our first day of riding starts in the beautiful Tyrolean village of Seefeld and takes us first a short distance to Germany where we made a short stop at the Sylvenstein reservoir. We then followed the Zillertal south and tackled our first pass, the Gerlospass. 

After lunch, we headed for the highlight of our day, the well-maintained Grossglockner Panorama Road, which took us up to the Edelweissspitze at 2572m above sea level in perfect weather, before continuing on to our hotel in Lienz.

Everyone is very excited at the briefing in the morning.
This is the route of the day.
Honda is very present.
All bikes nicely lined up at our first stop.
Our first stop for today, the Sylvenstein reservoir.
Coffee stop. Look at the scenery.
With over 300 meters, the Krimml Waterfalls are the highest in Europe. In September, however, the tide was low and there was hardly any water to be seen.

Day 2: Lienz to Bolzano

The perfect day

Today was just a perfect motorcyle day. We started of in Lienz and then went straight to South Tyrol and into the motorcycle paradies of the Dolomites. There you not only have amazing roads with corner after corner but also the most spectacular mountain scenery you can imagine. Furthermore we had a day with perfect weather, dry and sunny but not hot like on a mid summer day. What more could you wish for.

Day 03: Bolzano to Seefeld

A good end


Our last riding day started in Bolzano and led us back to Seefeld where we started a few days ago. With the Penserjoch and the Jaufenpass we enjoyed two more nice riding roads in Italy, before we crossed via the Timmelsjoch back to Austria.

Daily briefing in the old town of Bolzano.
