Enjoy the highest mountains, the most beautiful lakes and the many passes of the Alps.

The Alps are the fantasy of every motorcyclist and with a fairly long tour like this one you get a very good impression of it. The most important alpine countries are on our itinerary, Austria, Switzerland, France, and Italy. This is where the highest passes, the most spectacular roads, and the most magnificent panoramas await you. Here we collect passes like other people collect stamps, the crème de la crème of the world‘s best motorcycle roads is waiting for us, hundreds and hundreds of hairpin bends, one more beautiful and more fun than the other. For an experienced motorcyclist, this is the ultimate pleasure!

We start in Tyrol, not far from the Edelweiss headquarter, cross the whole of Switzerland, and finally arrive in France, where we circumnavigate the eternally snow-covered mountain giant Montblanc. After that, we enter Italian soil to enjoy orchards are in full bloom and the smell of the world‘s best espresso. Did somebody say paradise? Could be right here, perhaps in the middle of the incomparable Dolomites where we spend a rest day before we continue and return to Austria, where the oldest panorama road in the world is waiting to take us up the Grossglockner. This stretch is so fantastic and the mountain world around us so breathtaking that one could suspect paradise right here. At the end of the tour we all agree, for motorcyclists, paradise is everywhere where there's beautiful scenery and winding roads. Like here.

Unforgettable Alps tour

Everything was perfect about the tour, the hotels and their locations were exceptional, the food at the hotels was delicious, healthy, fresh and plentiful, the staff at the hotels was always friendly and helpful and provided whatever requested - a special kudos from me to the owner/manager of the Bergland for turning on the heat in our room that first night when everyone, including my husband, thought I was crazy...BUT HE DID. I'm still very grateful to him...and he was there smiling and accommodating when we returned for our last night! It was a very warm and welcoming touch. The route itself was so exciting, beautiful, challenging and exhilarating that the days, and trip, were over before we knew it. The points of interest were amazing and very well explained with time taken to enjoy them. We have to tell you - in our opinion, your most prized asset is Axel. He is everywhere, taking care of everyone, all the while smiling and happy and always had time to answer any questions and be with us at meals and becoming a part of the group. He didn't just disappear. He wasn't just a tour guide, he was our friend. He has the patience of Job, dealing with the various personalities of the group but he took it all in stride. I never saw him angry or refuse anyone any request. The man is a jewel. Edelweiss and Axel are the perfect fit! I can see why he's so happy and successful - your part of the world is HEAVEN ON EARTH! We cannot really comment on Angela since she had to leave our group so early on. But while she was there, please be assured that we absolutely have no complaints about anything she did or said. Also we got to meet Daniel for a short time and he was most helpful. Thank you for a wonderful, all around experience that we'll remember for a long, long time. Thank you, Janet and Brian Hyver New Orleans Louisiana

The Ultimate Alps Tour

The most important aspect of travelling is the journey. And Edelweiss Bike Travel made sure our participation in the Ultimate Alps Tour is a memorable one. The tour was not just wonderful because of the quality bikes, we stayed in great hotels, could experience challenging routes and travel with people who have the same attitude than we do. And the tour guides were great too. We had an outstanding trip experience and have collected so many postcard-like pictures which are saved on our cameras and in our mindes. Well done Edelweiss – keep up the good work and excellent customer service. We will be back soon!
