Tour description

Yu book your flight, giv eus the deatils and on your arrival we await you and bring you to your hotel. The next day we get your bike and ride a few miles. On the first day of the tour, we get used to our motorcycle and warm up gently, our route runs over smaller passes, then along charming lakes, wild rivers, plunging waterfalls, medieval castles and between high mountains and sharp, dramatic alpine peaks. Its a hassle-free trip, we did plan enough time to enjoy the magnificent panorama and make stops at some must-see sightseeings. By the end of the day, we’ll reach the canton Grisons, where we taste some Bündnerfleisch (air-dried meat), Capuns, Tatsch and Maluns with applesauce and for dessert a nut pie, all typical local specialities.

The second day, a magnificiant day-ride awaits us, where we might also learn a few words of Romansh, the fourth language spoken in Switzerland. It is one of the Rhaeto-Romance languages, believed to have descended from the “vulgar Latin” spoken by the roman occupiers in “Raetia”, today’s Grisons, in the years between 58 BC to 400AC. The third day, we definitely leave our hotel to get over the Swiss border, into the Tyrol. The owner/motorcyclist of the 4* hotel will await us with a surprise! We may unpack as this will be our “Base Camp” for the next few days. Daily tours are planned from this ideally placed hotel in the middle of the Alps; Alps pur-, Secret Roads-, Smugglers-, Spaghetti-, No-Name Valley- and Glacier-Tour. You choose a tour and enjoy the freedom and the thrill of climbing mountain roads on your motorcycle and to fall in love with great views from some of the highest passes in Europe. Should you or your partner want to have a break from the motorcycling touring, then you have again the choice between the Spa area, a massage, a mani-and, or pedicure, a facial, swimm in the heated outside pool or take advantage of the many activities this magnificient 4* hotel has to offer.
