Self Guided Motorcycle Tours

Booklet and mapsFor those who wish to choose the length and timing of their vacation or ride only in the company of close friends, we will be happy to organize a self guided tour that will best suit you in terms of number of days, distance, and things you would like to see or do. You can choose one of our itineraries from the Guided Tours section, or we will design a tour especially for you.

After we learn your preferences, we will plan your itinerary and book your hotels so there is nothing left to chance. You will receive a comprehensive tour booklet, detailed maps and route sheets.  Our careful planning and preparation means you won’t have to worry about missing the best roads and sights.  We’ve chosen the best accommodation and the nicest restaurants for you to enjoy. This is the prefect opportunity for solo riders, couples and friends or clubs to travel at their own pace with more flexibility!

Many of our customers decide to combine two of our different itineraries. Than if they want, we add or remove a day or two. We know the area very well and are always happy to help with suggestions.

Here are a few suggested routes that we have put together for our customers in the last couple of years. The routes here are not described in detail, we just want to show you that almost anything is possible with custom tours. If you want to have a better picture of what you will see and experience on these combined tours, you'll need to go through the itineraries of our Guided Tours where all the destinations are described in detail. With each tour you'll also find a few options on how to change it according to your preferences.
