epic european motorcycle tour videos

Vercors Motorcycle Tour for 2 fantastic days and 3 nights.

Come discover the attraction of the Vercors that draws motorcyclists from all over.  Mountain passes, forests, gorges, dizzying balcony roads, charming towns.  The Vercors offers a diverse experience.

Minutes from downtown Grenoble, you’ll be stunned minutes from leaving your hotel.  Take in some great views of the Grenoble metropolis, and the other neighboring mountain ranges like the Alps, Belledonne or Chartreuse.

The Vercors hosted 1968 Winter Olympic Events and the Resistance leveraged the terrain to mount operations during WWII.

Be sure to enjoy some local specialties like fondues, raclette, tartiflette, local cheeses and cured meats.  You’ll not only be seduced by the heavenly riding, but the scenery will also work its magic on you too.

Many of our guests who’ve done multiple tours agree that you don’t need to ride across multiple countries in Europe to have a good time.  All of them say riding the Vercors was a great way to spend two days and a lot of them ride the Vercors before setting off on a one or two week tour.
