Lombardy - a unique motorbiking paradise

Wonderful roads as far as the eye can see and bends, bends, bends! 

We start our tour in the German Allgäu region, departing from the lovely town of Nesselwang. On day 1 we cross the Alps and arrive at our base hotel in Lombardy.

The Oglio River has carved the Valcamonica Valley deep into the Alps. At the southern end of the valley is the Lago di Iseo embedded in a charming landscape. Here we have the opportunity to explore an impressive alpine landscape from the Hotel Oasi Verde in Prestine as our base. On narrow paved roads leading through alpine pastures and forests, from Passo Crocedomini there might also be sections with some light gravel, we ride to Lago d´Idro via the Passo Maniva. Little known but strikingly beautiful is Passo del Vivione. And once again bends, bends, bends! The tour continues through the Bergamasque Alps to the Lago di Como and on to Mandello del Lario, the home of Moto Guzzi.

Join us for some great riding fun cruising through the innumerable bends of well-known mountain passes such as Splügen, Maloja and Stilfser Joch, and lesser known ones such as San Marco and Presolana.

In the evenings, chef Valerio, the son of our family-run hotel, will spoil us with traditional meals from the region.
