Our tour starts with an afternoon Eurotunnel crossing to Calais before heading South-East through the Nord Pas De Calais region. Using the main motorway network we make our way to the first overnight stay of the tour after crossing in to Belgium.
We continue South the next morning through Belgium, Luxembourg and in to Germany for an overnight stay at our lovely four star hotel set within the Rhineland – Palantine region.
Today we head south through Rhineland-Palantinate, Baden Wurttemburg and in to the Black Forest, where we have an excellent family run hotel, offering secure parking and its own bar and restaurant.
From our hotel we head South through the beautiful Black Forest and down towards Switzerland. We cross the border, visiting a famous tourist spot, then using national routes we cross over in to Austria to the south of Lake Constance. We have a well situated hotel in Austria with ample parking and its own on site restaurant.
Today we head South and travel through Liechtenstein before crossing once again in to Switzerland. Our route today includes the Fluelapass, before we head North East through stunning Swiss scenery and cross back in to Austria for our next overnight stay. Our beautiful hotel gives us early access the next morning, to some wonderful motorcycling roads and three excellent passes.
Leaving the hotel we travel through beautiful Alpine scenery, entering the Timmelsjoch pass almost immediately and at its summit, crossing in to Italy. Please note there is a toll at the summit. It really is all about the stunning scenery today as we follow on to the beautiful Jaufenpass and then the Brenner pass, leaving Italy behind us and crossing back in to Austria. From Innsbruck we head North for Germany and the stunning Bavaria region. Our destination for the next two days is Garmisch Partenkirchen. famous for holding the International ‘World of BMW –Motorrad days’ and we will experience what the event has to offer on both Friday evening and all day on Saturday, with over 40,000 people in attendance each year.
There are trade exhibiters, motorcycle parades and stunt shows, along with classic boxer sprints and GS off road demonstrations. Everyone has a choice of either soaking up the atmosphere in the town of Garmisch on Friday evening or going up to the showground to do the same with live music and beer tents. Our 4* hotel is centrally located in Garmisch, allowing us easy access to the town or the showground. The event and all it has to offer is close by, without having to move the bikes from the security of the hotel parking. This really is an event for all enthusiastic motorcyclists, whether you are BMW owners or not.
Day two can be spent at the show, or visiting the Zugspitse (Germany’s highest mountain) or riding out and exploring locally in the area. Again a choice of what to do on Saturday evening, with entertainment at the showground including live groups, enormous well stocked beer tents and the food outlets, or a night in the town at the bars and restaurants, Garmisch can cater for everyone’s requirements.
Today we leave Garmisch behind and journey North, travelling out of Bavaria on local routes before picking up the motorway and heading towards Stuttgart. It is primarily motorway miles today, although we will break this up to the north of Karlsruhe. Our family run hotel for the evening is set in the Saarland region and has been used by Missed Adventures over the past 5 years.
The final push north this morning and on towards Calais for the Eurotunnel return. There is the choice if required on this trip of the Hull to Zeebrugge and return ferries as some have already opted for. (note: the pricing listed is for Eurotunnel return only – Please call us if you require the Ferry crossing) Using the main motorway network and travelling up towards Calais for the return on Monday 8th July. Participants on the overnight ferry will all travel on together, via the Brussels ring road and up to Zeebrugge for our departure at 19.00, arriving on Tuesday 9th July in Hull.
