DAY 1 & 2 - Calais to Germany

Leaving the Eurotunnel our journey begins in France. We head for Luxembourg for our first overnight stop. Our second night stop over is in Munich in Germany. A brief stop with an evening free to stroll around town, eat out or just relax and unwind in your hotel before day 3 when we ride through Austria and along one of the most famous roads in all of Europe, the Grossglockner Pass (weather permitting).

DAY 3 - Grossglockner Pass Austria

THE MOTHER OF ALL BIKING ROADS
If you haven’t heard of Grossglockner Pass, then look it up. It is stunning, mesmerizing and breathtaking. The Grossglockner High Alpine Road is the highest surfaced mountain pass road in Austria. It connects Bruck in the state of Salzburg with Heiligenblut in Carinthia via Fuscher Törl and Hochtor Pass at 2,504 m. It is a toll road but it is worth every single Euro!
A memory that will last for a long time!

We stay just inside the border this evening in Austria, which, lines us up very nicely for tomorrows scenic day

DAY 4 - SLOVENIA

A DAY FULL OF SCENIC INSPIRATION
Today we head into the Julian Mountains on the Austrian and Slovenian border as well as take the opportunity to ride through Vršič Pass. The Vršič Pass, with an elevation of 1,611 metres, is a high mountain pass across the Julian Alps in northwestern Slovenia. It is the highest pass in Slovenia, as well as the highest in the Eastern Julian Alps. A day truly worth looking forward to!
We also stop briefly to admire Bled Castle on Lake Bled and we make time to capture memories and photos of the surrounding beauty, namely the Grintovec and Karawanks Mountains.
This, in addition to some spectacular roads, you’ll be sure to have a breathtaking day. We stay the night in the city of Ljubljana

DAY 5 - CAVES & WATERFALLS

Leaving the city, we head south through Slovenia alongside the Notranjski National Park and on to Postojna Cave where we will have the opportunity to have lunch, relax for a while and enjoy a tour of the beautiful cave (caves tours must be booked in advance).

In the afternoon we ride to Plitvice Lakes National Park, where we stay the evening after exploring the magnificent waterfalls. It is a long day today and a lot is packed in but the conversations over dinner will be worth it!

DAY 6 - The Adriatic Coast

We continue our journey south through the Zadar County, hugging the Bosnian border and pass through valleys with a brief stop a the Visovac Monastery eventually heading west back towards the coast. We follow the coast road around to Split and rest for the evening in our hotel

DAY 7 - Rest Day

Today is as relaxing or as adventurous as you wish, spend the day in the town of Split, a town on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, it is known for its beaches and the fortress like complex at its centre, Diocletian’s Palace, erected by the Roman emperor in the 4th century. Once home to thousands, its sprawling remains include more than 200 buildings. Within its white stone walls and under its courtyards and galleries are shops, bars, cafes, cathedrals, hotels and several houses.

There are many small islands in the bay of Spit which you can also explore. Or head for the stunning seaside port of Omis, a beautiful small town between Makarska and Split

Hvar is a city and port on the island of Hvar, part of Split-Dalmatia County, Croatia. The municipality has a population of 4,251 while the city itself is inhabited by 3,771 people, making it the largest settlement on the island of Hvar.

Šolta is an island in Croatia. It is situated in the Adriatic Sea in the central Dalmatian archipelago, west of the island of Brač, south of Split and east of the Drvenik islands, Drvenik Mali and Drvenik Veli

Or why not take the opportunity to go river rafting, an amazing experience. (let us know if you wish to participate in this activity so we can book in advance) https://raftrek.com/tour/cetina-river-rafting/

DAY 8 - Adriatic Coast Road - D8

When riders talk about Croatia and Slovenia they always mention the Dalmation Coast road and that is exactly what is on the menu today! We head north on a 250 mile journey, a relatively long day with plenty of miles and lots of curvy roads alongside beautiful turquoise waters edges (some are motorway and dual carriageway) but the best bit is riding alongside the coast. The road is an abundance of twists, turns, straights and moderate hairpins all with a stunning view. We rest for the evening in Koper

9

DAY 9 - DOLOMITES

From Koper in Slovenia we head through Italy and continue through the northern Italian Alps and ride across the Italian Dolomites as we go. We finally cross back over into Austria, through Innsbruck and back into Germany, resting for the evening on the border with Austria. Germany being economically better priced and it’s beer being unequivocally better flavoured, its a warm welcome from our days riding!

For me an extremely important element of an adventure such as this is how the tour guide is and I have always found Chris approachable and understanding

I enjoy the pace we travel at and if I feel like going at another pace, then I do so, without worry. It was also fortunate to share this journey with a wonderful group of people, all in all a really good trip. Would also add the hotels were very diverse and the more enjoyable for this
