Leaving 8th June 2020 from Dover - Prices Start at £2100
Day 1: Meeting at 9am sharp at the Dover to Calais Ferry we embark the Ferry and make our way straight to France via the short crossing. This allows us time to go through a few of the finer tour details whilst we cross. After disembarkation we begin to set our path into Germany heading towards Dusseldorf where we will catch a night train to Austria that will take our bikes with us as we sleep, Doing this negates us having to spend two full days commuting across country to get to where we want to be.
Day 2: Arriving nice and early into Austria on the overnight train, we make our way straight into some fantastic twisty roads heading Eastwards through central Austria as we head for Slovenia. Stopping overnight around the Villach area in Southern Austria we prepare ourselves for some captivating scenery on our way south towards Croatia. If time permits, we can take in the spectacular Grossglockner Pass. Imagine that! Day 2 and already you are into the World class biking roads!
Day 3: We start with a hearty Breakfast then leave heading south through Villach and Faaker See crossing the border into Slovenia and meandering toward the castle of bled (a castle in the Julian alps of the upper carniolan region of northwest Slovenia) just 55km from the capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana. With breathtaking views and the ability to take a boat trip to the church like building on the island in the middle of the Lake, with Bled Castle overlooking the entire Lake high up on the mountains, this is a sight well worth a mention on our tour. There is similar in Scotland it’s true, but the weather there is no match for Slovenia. After pondering over the serenity for a short while we continue to make our way south through Slovenia towards Croatia where there is so much to see and do. We aim for Karlovac as a destination for the night to sit and relax whilst discussing the beautiful sights of the day before we retire for the evening.
Day 4: After a great sleep in a fantastic location we get up and make tracks nice and early in the day to make the most of the progress through the countryside in Croatia on our way to explore the Plitvice Lakes. After some time here we make our way south via some little used back roads which offer some great twists and turns and open out into spectacular views too. This will feel like a fairly long day today after an early start due to spending a some off the bike time exploring the lakes. A seat time of only around 5 hours means it’s still a fairly easy day on the body and mind. We stop around the Split/Sinj/Trilj area for a well deserved evening of relaxation.
Day 5: Heading off refreshed and revitalised from yesterday’s serene viewings we continue to make our inland journey toward the ancient city of Dubrovnik where we will spend some time off the bikes and exploring everything on offer and allow ourselves a rest day from the bikes readying ourselves for the spectacular Dalmatian Coastal route back northwards over the next few days. Today is a fairly short day on the bikes giving us the afternoon to settle in and explore the beautiful city of Dubrovnik and its surrounding region.
Day 6: Here we have a Day off the bikes to explore further into Dubrovnik and its walled Ancient City. Famous for being the filmset of the majority of Game of Thrones we take you round and show you the places in the city, or, if you prefer, you can take an official guided tour from the locals. With some nice beaches and great restaurants nearby, you may wish to pack some swimwear to take advantage of the beaches on your day off. Perhaps a boat trip or a blast on a jet-ski is more your thing? Its entirely up to you for today
Day 7: Leaving Dubrovnik early, we begin to make our way up the coastal route towards split another old city with large outdoor markets and more GoT film sets. We stop for a bite for lunch here along the quayside with its many restaurants and eateries. After satisfying our hunger we continue on up the coast towards Zadar for dinner/drinks along with a good nights rest before tackling the rest of the enthralling road north back towards Slovenia.
Day 8: After a good breakfast we continue up the Dalmation coastal route back into Slovenia where we make our way to the Postojna Caves (This is approx a 3 hour stop off and is well worth the entrance fee (approx 30 Euros pp) to visit and view the caves). After we have been blown away with the cave tour on offer here we stay nearby for a relaxing evening, or if you prefer you may do the cave tour the following morning we can just see how time permits.
Day 9: After a great meal, nights rest and a bite to eat again for breakfast we continue our route through the remainder of the Triglav National Park and begin to make our way back to Innsbruck via some great roads. Today is all about the roads and enjoying the views that surround us. Stopping again near Villach as we make our way back to the night train from Innsbruck to Dusseldorf, marking the start of our return to the U.K
Day 10: Continuing through some of Austria's great road network, we pick up a final pass en route to Innsbruck. Having spent the day meandering through some fabulous twisty routes and snapping our final pics as memories, we set our sights on heading for the night train that will return us from Innsbruck back to Dusseldorf to retrace our trail back home.
Day 11: Once we arrive back in Dusseldorf on the overnight train, we regroup and begin to make our way back towards France via some autobahns and finally heading for Calais to complete our journey back in to the U.K. After boarding the Ferry we have a short time to say our goodbyes and relive the last 11 days of the finest biking you will likely have done before parting ways and returning to our respective homes to relive the tour all over again with our friends and loved ones which will likely leave them wishing they had come with you..
This is a must tour for any motorcyclists. The experience was awesome and haggis tours handled everything from start to finish with expert hands...
