Adventure, unforgettable moments, and friends for a lifetime!

Once we have picked our bikes and enjoyed a few days in Munich to get acclimatised, we head south for Mieming in Tyrol, where Edelweiss Bike Travel is based.

On the way there we will visit the world-famous Schloss Neuschwanstein and tackle the first alpine twisties of the tour. During the following days we will get to know the Edelweiss team, ride the Alps all the way to the Passo Stelvio, and then make our way via Salzburg to Budapest. On the way we will also pass through some of the most excellent wine regions Europe has to offer. A bottle or two might have to be sampled. Leaving the Hungarian capital behind us, we will head north and pass through Slovakia and the Tatra mountain range as we head for Krakow in Poland. After a wellearned break, it will be time to pay our respects as we visit the infamous concentration camp of Auschwitz. From there we turn west, heading for Prague, capital of the Czech Republic. A rest day will allow us ample time to visit the stunning historical city center and sample some of the fantastic pubs this beautiful town has to offer. The roads through the Ore Mountains take us back towards Germany. The old town of Dresden and the new city of Berlin are two of the many highlights of this section. After another rest day, we head east through Kolberg and Reszel. Poland will enchant us with its beautiful Baltic beaches, the Masurian Lakes and cosy evenings with hearty food. Vilnius marks our entry into the New Europe: untouched nature, pretty little towns, the historic capitals of the Baltic States are just some of the highlights of this route. We will spend a rest day in each of the capitals, giving us time to realize that we are crossing borders that 20 years ago seemed as solid and immutable as stone walls. Our road to St. Petersburg takes us across one of these borders. After completing some fairly intricate and strenuous border formalities, we will enter the largest country on Earth, Russia. Two days riding via Vyshny Volochok will take us to Moscow and give us our first glimpse of the grand scale of this enormous country and how the tour would go on riding to Asia. Participants finishing the European leg will leave Moscow, after an impressive rest day, to reach the final destination in the Latvian capital of Riga and end a fantastic section filled with a bounty of natural, cultural and culinary highlights.
