Autumn Glory

28 Sept – 3 October 2019

Our view: See the Ardennes forests and the Mosel vineyards in all their colours. Brilliant roads and great places to visit on a day off the bikes provide plenty for both riders and pillions to enjoy. There are some really twisty roads on this Tour so although one of our shorter trips it will only suit experienced riders.

The idea for this Tour came while we were researching the routes for running our new 5×4 (5 Nights in 4 Countries) – being the 4×4 Tour in reverse and with an extra night! The scenery was so lovely that we had to offer it as a separate Tour in its own right.

The Tour starts and finishes in Calais. The first day is a mixture of roads as we cross Northern France to our first hotel in the Ardennes department of France where dinner and wine is included tonight.

The next day we ride through the forests of the French and Belgian Ardennes with coffee & lunch stops before spending the afternoon riding the brilliant roads in Luxembourg where we stay our second night. This evening is at your leisure and there are several restaurants close by to choose from,

Day three sees us ride a mixture of twisties – including hairpins – and sweepers into Germany. The scenery alongside the golden vineyards and the Mosel River is just beautiful. We stay in Germany for two nights at the same hotel and dinner is included the first night here.

A day off the bikes allows you time to explore the region: take a boat trip on the Mosel River, take the cable-car for views over Cochem and/or visit the castle. Alternatively ride over to Boppard on the Rhine, visit the fairytale Burg Eltz Castle (just down the road) or try a lap or two of the Nurburgring! You won’t be stuck for things to do. The second night here is at your leisure and there are numerous restaurants a short stroll from our hotel.

Day five we ride some great sweeping roads to the prettiest coffee stop – still in Germany. Lunch is back in Belgium with a late afternoon arrival planned at our final hotel also in Belgium with a surprise in store (included in the price). Dinner is also included here.

On our last day we plan to ride for approximately an hour before having a coffee stop and then taking non-peage motorway back to Calais. An early afternoon arrival will allow you to catch a ferry/take the Eurotunnel back to the UK and reach home the same day.

This will be a fully guided motorcycle trip from the moment you arrive in Calais and with the addition of a luggage van you are able to ride unencumbered. The routes have been extensively researched to ensure that we always stop every hour and a half for coffee, lunch or fuel so riders – and pillions – will not be too long in the saddle. As we use our tried & tested “2nd man drop-off” marker system with a permanent tail-end rider there is no need for you to refer to road books, maps or GPS.

We stay in smaller, independent hotels, all with character, all are biker friendly.

Please contact us if you require any additional information – remember there are limited places on our Tours. Further information regarding riding abroad can be found on the Advice and FAQs pages on our website.
