  • Italian Alps & Moto GP

    Overview

    The Alps were formed over tens of millions of years as the African and European Continents collided and what we’ve been left with, is a mountain range that runs for 750 miles across eight countries and has 100 peaks that are over 4000 metres high.

    Neither Hannibal, the Romans, Napoleon or Adolf Hitler will have enjoyed their visit to the area as much as Vale Moto Tours…..none of them had bikes to ride did they?

    If you want to add, the Vosges Mountains in France, a night in Liechtenstein, the Stelvio Pass on the Swiss / Italian border, a bit of the Ducati Factory in Bologna, the San Marino Moto GP race, Tuscany, the Vercors in France and some gob-smacking biking roads into the mix, then this is the tour for you!

    This is the kind of tour where there is more emphasis on riding your bike and has been graded as Experienced Riders Only.

    Itinerary

    Day 1, Folkestone to Vosges

    Carving a route towards the Alps. We avoid motorways like the plague, but if we want to get to the good stuff as soon as we can, it’s unavoidable unfortunately.
    300+ Miles

    Day 2, Vosges to Liechtenstein

    A play in the Vosges Mountains over the Col Du Ballon and onto Liechtenstein. The Alps await!
    200 Miles

    Day 3, Liechtenstein to Stelvio and beyond!

    This is one of the big days. Crossing over the Alps and dropping down the Stelvio Pass (going up it is too easy). Riders will be able to see the view over each bend….and of course, there’s plenty of fantastic roads before and after it too.
    200 Miles

    Day 4, Hotel to Venice

    Leaving the mountains and heading for the coast…..via Lake Garda!
    200 Miles

    Day 5, Venice to San Marino

    A nice easy ride down the coast to our hotel.
    150 Miles

    Day 7, San Marino to the West Coast

    Our final day on the Italian roads.
    175 Miles

    Day 9, The Vercors

    Stunning scenery as we hug the cliffs along Combe Laval. It’s certainly not for the faint hearted! Take another route if you prefer, these are ‘never to be forgotten’ roads.
    175 Miles

    Day 10, North through eastern France

    Travelling north through the Rhône-Alpes and Burgundy wine region of France.
    205 Miles
