Grand Tour Switzerland Motorcycle Tour

Posted By : Mike Owen/ 0 0

The Grand Tour Switzerland Motorcycle Tour will take you across the Alps, over & through the best that Switzerland has to offer.
For us motorcyclists, it offers a lot. Bucket-list mountain passes, pastoral scenery, the clanging of cowbells, chalets…cheese, and chocolate. You’ll marvel at the mountain passes, the serenity, the picture perfect postcard scenery. As a bonus you get a taste of Italy too, the Italian Lakes Como and the Stelvio Pass.

Grand Tour Switzerland Motorcycle Tour Review

Talk about putting “Grand” with a capital G into the Grand Tour Switzerland Motorcycle tour.

This tour was jam packed with mountains & mountain passes, many featured on the silver screen. If we weren’t charging up mountain roads, we were motoring through valleys passing postcard picture forests, streams, waterfalls, chalets and the like. Not only did we ride the best roads in Switzerland, we took advantage and did some in Italy & France.

The roads were challenging and were only asking to be ridden at a spirited pace. We were happy to oblige and indulge ourselves.

The riding & scenery were spectacular, but somehow we managed to dismount to enjoy some fabulous food. Meal after meal, the quality & variety was amazing.

Switzerland was the headliner on this tour, but we had to sample some of France & Italy while we were in the neighborhood.

The iconic Stelvio Pass went down hard. There were so many hairpin turns we lost count, so we just had to do it again.

After getting our fill of the Stelvio Pass, we toured the Dolomites. These mountains are so spectacular it’s easy to take your eyes off the road.

Now that our skills were sufficiently honed, and we were in mid-season form, we took on a number of “cols” featured in the Tour de France. Maybe not as well publicized as the Stelvio Pass or Grossglockner, but riding the French Alps is a favorite among European riders.

Galibier, Lautaret, Croix de Fer, Glandon, Ornon… we brought our “A” game to take on these monsters. All are top shelf roads and we were blown away by them all. Thanksfully we had delicious French cuisine to keep us fueled up.

The week passed almost as fast as we took on some of these phenomenal roads. Looking back on it we covered some serious ground and managed to accomplish so much that would make many fellow riders jealous.
