A motorcycle tour to Alsace also gives you the opportunity to ride over the border into Germany to explore the Black Forest – another favourite area with motorcyclists.

When is the best time to go?

Arguably all seasons offer something very different for an unforgettable motorcycle tour, however if you want to avoid the crowds try planning your motorcycle tour slightly out of the holiday season. Spring and Autumn will still offer plenty of fantastic scenery as the seasons change, and much like Summer can still offer seasonably warm weather throughout Europe. April – October will be your best times to plan a motorcycle tour in Europe.

Don’t forget we also offer night-time and early morning sailings on all our routes, should you wish to hit the open road a little earlier in the day!
