Alps Deluxe

Monday, September 27, 2021 | Claudia Wenhart / Stefan Sykora | Europe

Thank you for traveling with us, we had a great tour, best weather and a lot of fun. Have a safe travel home and see you soon again.

Welcome to Seefeld

Alps Deluxe was advertised as a Mystery Tour some years ago and designed and scouted by our CEO Rainer. Today it started again with our welcome briefing and the bike handover. A great group with six riders will start tomorrow.

First riding day to Eppan

What a great riding day. We enjoyed every minute. Perfect weather, sunshine and a good mood.

Our route took us in the morning over Timmeljoch, one of the famous passes in the eastern Austrian alps.

Our second riding day from Eppan to Cisano di Valmarino

Our day started with a perfect breakfast in the "Red Room" in our Castle. All the food was prepared and presented perfectly. After our morning briefing we started in direction south-east to our next spot Cisone di Valmarino in the Prosecco area.

From Prosecco to Grappa

Today we went from Cisano di Valmarino to Bassano di Grappa. After some morning adventures we made it to Monte Grappa. Monte Grappa was quiet in the fog, but when we took off, sun came out and we could see the Military Monument.

After a curvy nice ride down to Feltre, we climbed up another nice pass with 28 switchbacks to Enego. A quick coffee stop on top and than back to our next destination Bassano. Before we went to dinner we visited the "Old Bridge" - Ponte Vecchio and had a typical italian aperitif on the bridge.

Delicious dinner

Verona is our next destination, where we gonna stay for two nights in a Agriturismo. Our route for today comes through Asiago - where the typical Asiago Cheese comes from - Passo del Sommo, Passo della Borcola, Passo Xomo and Passo Xon. A lot of curves for today. The "Road of 52 Tunnels" was a military mule road in World War I.

We left the Lago and went to Bormio

Today was our penultimate riding day through a beautiful landscape. We left lake Garda in direction southwest. Our first stop was Lago di Idro, we stopped for a quick foto before we climbed up our first pass for today "Passo Croce Domini". The weather was perfect and on top we had a good coffee and met some other motorcyclist. In Edolo a yummy lunch with typical homemade Gnocchi waited for us. Afterwards to enter into Bormio we took two different routes, one over Passo Aprica and the other over Gavia Pass.

Already our last riding day to today - time always goes by so fast. Weather is perfect and we will start directly with the backside of Umbrail Pass. After this - the pass of all passes STELVIO is on our list. 43 switchbacks are waiting for us to be climbed down. Our lunch spot will be in Glurns - italians smallest city with about 800 inhabitants. Its located on the old salt trade route. On our way back to Austria we will go to Lago di Resia (Lake Reschen) - famous for its listed church steeple of Graun peeking out of the lake.
