every day. I opted for

every day. I opted for the Precious Dolomites tour instead as that included a scenic part of Italy I have always wanted to see. After booking, Edelweiss sent me a route-book, a map and two luggage tags. Every day’s riding is neatly described in the route-book with suggestions for rest stops and lunch recommendations. You have the option of a long and a short “The tour itself was really well organized. The roads we travelled on were spectacular and some of the most scenic routes were so far off the beaten track that I doubt you would ever come across them if you were putting together this tour yourself.” route every day. The longer route adds in a few scenic loops and they are well worth exploring. Having booked the tour, everything was handled and paid for online. Two months before the tour started, my son asked if he could tag along. All it took was a single mail to Edelweiss and all my accommodation was changed to twin accommodation. That is the benefit of booking through places like Edelweiss. It is hassle-free. Also, Edelweiss had an option for you to rent all your motorcycle gear, should you choose not to lug all your gear half-way around the globe. The tour itself was really well organized. The roads we travelled on were spectacular and some of the most scenic routes were so far off the beaten track that I doubt you would ever come across them if you were putting together this tour yourself. Taking the shorter route on some days afforded us the luxury of exploring the towns we stayed in. At the time I thought it would be nice if you could add in a rest day, as I wanted to stay a bit longer in one of the towns. With the new, expanded, self-guided tours you can do that now. If you are into your motorcycling, but your significant other is more into pedal-power, the Edelweiss might just have the solution. They offer e-bike tours through the most scenic parts of Austria. These bikes offer the rider some assistance with the pedalling effort and you cover around 70km per day. Would I book though Edelweiss again? Most definitely. In fact, for 2020 they have added more tours to their itinerary and I am already eying one called Twisty Tuscany!
