The Ultimate Alps Tour CUA

Austria   |  Italy   |  Switzerland

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

If there is a place on earth that‘s made for the eye, the camera and our bikes, it is surely the Alps. We have chosen the very best of those roads and selected the choicest hotels. We know this region very well, it is our home, and we offer it to you.

We’ll pick up the motorcycles in the Edelweiss hometown of Mieming and enjoy the first challenging mountain passes on our way to Pontresina, Switzerland. From there we explore more of the wonderful roads the Swiss Alps have to offer until we reach Brunnen. The road to Brunnen is pure color drama, and the town, with its view of Vierwaldstättersee, is the climactic encore of that drama. The next day we’re off to Zermatt, where you can watch in awe as the setting sun colors the snow-covered Matterhorn a deep crimson. Weather permitting, of course.

And yet, Lugano, in Italy, is even more spectacular, so that’s where we’ll go next. Then we head to the Val di Sole and on to Klobenstein/Bolzano, through the Dolomites, mind-boggling in their beauty. If you could take only one motorcycle trip in Europe in your life, this is the one we would suggest.

Testimonials

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!
