It still is a secret tip of connoisseurs, but it is named alongside the legendary Route 66, the Great Ocean Road and the South African Garden Route. We are talking about the Grand Tour of Switzerland! Because the country is so diverse in its natural beauty and cultural sights, you can either choose to participate in the West Loop or the East Loop or combine the two. Either way, seize the chance and ride along the Grand Tour of Switzerland.
The West Loop takes you from the vibrating city of Zurich to the picturesque West and South of this amazing country. We will cover the Swiss Alps and even get a glimpse of the Swiss Matterhorn. Along the way we literally cruise along deep-blue tranquil and palm-lines lakes to the highest mountain passes. The Grand Tour of Switzerland is predestined to be explored on a Harley-Davidson®, so this is that we will do. And each morning another day full of fun and adventure awaits us on this uniquely set up route. The theme of this tour: simply enjoy life and ride along!
