Tour Overview

This unique tour starts in the cosmopolitan capital of Catalonia, in Barcelona. On our second day we head into the mighty Pyrenees Mountains towards Andorra. We quickly get into the deep forest on the east side of the Pyrenees. We spend the first three days on the north side of the mountain range on winding roads along a breathtaking landscape and over amazing mountain heights and fantastic rock formations.
We climb the Pyrenees in the saddle of our beloved machines, the beauty of this landscape is breathtaking! As soon as we reach the west side we come to the elegant city of San Sebastian. With two nights there we have time enough to taste pintxos, Basque tapas and the typical white wine Txakoli and relax at the “Playa de la Concha” the mussel bay. Back to Barcelona it goes along the south side of the Pyrenees where the roads lead into valleys. We follow the rivers and enjoy the landscape where water has created new forms through the erosion for millions of years. In the Pyrenees every motorcyclist will be fascinated by endless, winding and fantastic roads, as well as the great landscape, valleys, gorges, rapids and spectacular viewpoints. Of course we will also enjoy the delicious regional cuisine.
