ABOUT EDELWEISS BIKE TRAVEL
Edelweiss Bike Travel has provided the world with the finest choices in motorcycle and scooter touring around the globe since 1980.
Since our company’s inception, we’ve increased the variety of experiences available, making Edelweiss the undisputed
leader in guided motorcycle tours the world over.
Never before have there been so many different opportunities to be a world traveller. You can join our Around the World
motorcycle expedition and circumnavigate the globe in a single stretch. You can choose to explore planet Earth, continent
by continent, by doing sections only. Or you may decide to add pieces to your personal world tour puzzle by taking several
Edelweiss tours over the years. Whatever your approach may be, we offer excellent choices for everyone!
And it’s not only the vast array of countries we enable you to explore, we also provide you with the latest and most-desired
motorcycles. The hotels, chalets and resorts we stay in are carefully selected to suit our clientele and Edelweiss tour
guides are famous for their expertise, helpfulness and friendliness.
So with our more than 34 years of experience we are providing motorcycle and scooter travelling at its best!
Up to now, more than 34,300 customers have been on an Edelweiss tour
somewhere in the world and have experienced the benefits of the
world’s leading motorcycle touring company.
LONG TOURING EXPERIENCE
30+ years of experience in motorcycle touring worldwide you can rely on.
We have recognized over the years that the single most important aspect of guided
motorcycle tours is the safe ride. In addition to some tours, we offer an optional
supplementary, one-day training – the Alps Riding Training.
HIGH TOUR QUALITY
Whether you choose to join us in Europe to ride the Alps, to discover the land
of the long white cloud – New Zealand, to experience the African continent on a
motorcycle, or to ride on the spectacular roads in Thailand, the high standard
of our services will always be the same.
Our Edelweiss policy is very clear about one thing: you don’t have to stay with
the group during the day’s ride on nearly all tours. You are free to ride the
route of your choice every day in a little group of your own or you can join
the tour guide and benefit from his knowledge and experience.
YOU RIDE FREE OF LUGGAGE
A support vehicle accompanies most of the tours (according to the tour category),
which allows you to ride free of luggage and to bring along enough clothing to
feel comfortable during your whole vacation. On most of our tours you will be
pleased to find your luggage already in your hotel room after a full day of fine riding.
After a great day of riding everyone enjoys the amenities of the comfortable
hotels we have chosen for our tours.
THE BEST TOUR GUIDES
Our multilingual tour guides are known for their professionalism and enthusiasm.
He or she is a pro in every respect. Edelweiss tour directors undergo a very tough
selection process and only one out of 20 applicants qualifies for the job. The
training is extensive and starts in the classroom. The tour director level is
reached only after three full seasons of learning the art of being helpful,
friendly and fun to be with, all day and every day, in addition to
the number one goal: safety!
LATE MODEL MOTORCYCLES
You can choose from a wide variety of late model motorcycles from
different manufacturers. Most of our motorcycles have ABS, saddlebags,
and heated grips – you will get detailed information about the motorcycle
accessories from your Edelweiss travel agent.
CAREFUL TOUR PREPARATION
We work on improving tour details year after year – you arrive, ride and
enjoy, from day one. As a rider you will get a tour information package
before the tour starts so you can prepare yourself for the tour accordingly.
The information will contain a road map and the tour book, as well as the hotel information.
