Can a Vespa really be the right means of transport to tackle iconic Alpine roads like the Großglocknerstraße or the Timmelsjoch with their countless switchbacks? Well, our vespas have 300 cc, 20 HP and automatic, gearless transmission, which make them fit for any type of road. Because of their low weight – about 160 kg or 350 lbs – and small wheels you can handle your Vespa like... well, like a scooter! And have loads of riding fun.
Unlike our other scooter tours, this one is a tour where we relocate to a different hotel almost every day. Highlights include the one-of-a-kind city of Salzburg, Mozart’s birthplace, and the Großglockner High Alpine Road, which will put our scooters to the test. Remember: Lower speed means more time to look around and enjoy the amazing scenery. The Dolomites are the most spectacular part of the Alps and one of the most popular ones, but on our scooters we don’t mind the traffic, because Vespas have a built-in lane-splitting device. From Bolzano, the capital of South Tyrol and home to Ötzi, the ice man, we eventually return to Seefeld.
