Bosenberg Motorcycle ExcursionsFrench & Swiss Alps tour narrative

Alpine regions offer motorcyclists more riding adventure and excitement than any other region in Europe. Choose this tour for riding the western Alps, select our Classic Alps & Dolomites tour for the eastern Alps or choose our Burgundy & Swiss Alps tour for a gourmet ride of a lifetime. Your ride has more curves and the natural beauty more rugged and open. The western Alps are less developed than their eastern relatives, but the riding adventure is arguably better. Of course, the French cuisine has no counterparts anywhere in the world...

Everywhere you ride, there is something to delight the senses. Charming half- timbered cottages with window boxes bursting with colorful flowers...dark, quiet woods, fragrantly scented with pine... fairy tale castles around many curves and always beautiful scenery. Start your ride by winding along the Rhine river and through the vineyards and hills of Rhinehessen.

Discover the Suedliche Weinstrasse and enter France by passing through the Maginot line. Join the Route du Vin and stay in a colorful Alsatian wine village. Ride south through vineyards and colorful towns.

Visit Gruyeres and sample some cheeses bearing the town's name the world over. Explore the water fortress of Chillon, where Lord Byron's "Prisoner of Chillon" was incarcerated. See Mt. Blanc, the highest mountain in Europe.

Ride the Gorge des Eveaux, the Aravis chain and passes Col de la Colombiere, Col des Aravis and Gorges de'l Arondine. Challenge the Col de la Forclaz, Col des Esserieux, Col de la Madeleine and Col de la Croix.

No matter which way you plan to ride, Alpine vistas, rushing rivers, cows grazing on high pastures and villages of flowered chalets welcome you. Even the most ardent sport riders take time to enjoy the flowers. Enjoy a full 3 day stop in the charming village of Megeve.

Travel the "Route of the Grand Alps" and "Olympic Valley". See Albertville and site of the 1992 winter Olympics. How about a day trip to the cosmopolitan city of Geneva? Or why not ride a loop around Lake Geneva with stops in the medieval village of Yvoire or the spa town of Evian or resort of Montreaux?

Dozens of French Alpine passes present themselves to you. For starters how about the Col des Granges, Col de Restefond, Cormet de Roselend, Col de Vars, Col de l'Iseran, and the Col du Mt. Cenis. If you look hard enough, you just may see the ghost of Hannibal and his elephants, who scaled this same pass 25 centuries ago.

Challenge the Grimsel and Furka passes with their superb sweeping curves and unforgettable vistas. Stop by the Fritz Egli garage in the town of Bettwil. Considered by many to be the best engine tuner and frame constructor in Europe, he calls himself simply "a mechanic".

Ride the Black Forest High Road with its hills and curves, open meadows and green valleys. With luck you may hear a real cuckoo or more likely purchase an authentic smaller version of the Black Forest's most famous product.

See the "Student Prince" university town of Heidelberg. Visit the Altstadt (Old City) with its historical center. Your tour is almost over as you mount your steed one last time, ride the cobblestone streets and enter the Autobahn for a short and fast ride towards Frankfurt/Main.
