What’s new in the Edelweiss 2011 program?
In our standard program you will find many new and exciting destinations. These are the new destinations in 2011.
**SCANDINAVIA **– We have often had requests to expand our Scandinavian destinations further afield than the Touring Center in Alesund. So now we are offering 2 new touring routes. Eleven days discovering THE VIKING EXPERIENCE (page 52/53) from Göteborg via Oslo, Stavanger and Bergen to Alesund. Experience a fascinating world of forests, fjords, mountains and glaciers. This tour offers everything. True adventure is awaiting you on the journey to the North Cape – every motorcyclists dream. Experience with us on the ADVENTURE NORTH CAPE tour (page 56/57) the unforgettable impressions riding along the coast of Norway and along the Lofoten.
RUSSIA – Yes, we’re going back! Our first tour to Russia took place in 1988 and its time to return and discover the fascinating culture and history on our MOSCOW TO ST. PETERSBURG tour (page 36/37). We will spend plenty of time in both of these cities.
SPAIN/ PORTUGAL – Plenty of sun, little traffic, fantastic roads: These are just the obvious bonuses of this tour. On our ST. JAMES WAY tour (page 44/45), travelling through the northern parts of Spain and Portugal, you will have many touring delights. Mounted on your iron horse you can follow the pilgrims route and spend a rest day among fellow pilgrims in Santiago de Compostella. A further highlight in southern Europe is our ROYAL SPANISH VACATION tour (page 48/49). Enjoy royal days in historic hotels on the border between Spain and Portugal. This is a motorcycling delicacy for these who won’t miss that touch of luxury whilst touring.
SOUTH AMERICA – Our program on this continent is becoming more extensive each year. After our successful scouting tour in 2010 we have decided to go ahead with our ADVENTURE ALTIPLANO tour (page 62/63), a real adventure trip through the High Andes in Bolivia, Chile and Argentina. Of course you also have the opportunity to ride along the famous Ruota de la Muerte. Furthermore, we have changed our route on the ADVENTURE MACHU PICCHU tour (page 60/61) so that we spend 2 rest days in the amazing Amazona National Forest Reservation, Tambopata.
NEW ZEALAND – New Zealand is one of our Classic tours since many years. In 2011 you can take our long standing standard NEW ZEALAND tour (page 94/95) with an extension or try the new ADVENTURE NORTH ISLAND tour (page 96/97). Perhaps you’re more interested in our new BEST OF AUSTRALIA tour (page 92/93) where you can race along with kangaroos and other strange creatures.
A further highlight in 2011 in our co-operation with Ducati, offering tours on this exciting motorcycle around the world. There are six destinations: Spain, Portugal, Morocco, the Alps, Italy, USA and Australia where you can try the red devil, you’re sure to find the tour of your dreams starting on page 112.
