    “Beautiful scenery, vineyards, hidden gems, excellent roads and fine cuisine – The Islands of Sardinia & Corsica have it all and are a ‘must do’ for any motorcyclist”

    “The marina, citadel, old town and the views across the harbour and surrounding cliffs are the individual highlights of Bonifacio – but it is the atmosphere and Mediterranean ambiance that will stay longest in your memory”…

    “There is not in Italy what there is in Sardinia, nor in Sardinia what there is in Italy. This land resembles no other place. Sardinia is something else. Enchanting spaces and distances to travel-nothing finished, nothing definitive. It is like freedom itself”..

    “Life in Sardinia is probably the best a man can hope: twenty-four thousand kilometers of forests, plains, coasts dipped in a miraculous sea”…

    “Sardinia – home to beautiful white sandy beaches with crystal-clear blue water and a pleasant Mediterranean climate. Many tourists flock to Sardinia to enjoy the glorious weather on these beaches, which are perfect for sunbathing and swimming. But it’s not the main reason we are here, we’re here for its roads and mountains scattered around the island, through nature reserves, which make for exhilarating biking and is sure to be a hit”…

    “From their National Parks to the turquoise waters of their beaches, from their delicious gastronomy to their authentic people and villages – Sardinia & Corsica have it all”…


    Introduction – Sardinia and Corsica are rated as top destinations both for tourism and motorcyclists alike and their accessibility from the mainlands can be a double edged sword – difficult to get to but relatively quite when you do get there. Having toured the regions extensively as part of our ‘Tuscany & Corsica’ tours we’ve put together a fantastic itinerary. With ‘less is more’ being the basis for this particular tour we indulge in the very best the regions have to offer in terms of scenery, cuisine and local hospitality. In order to facilitate both riders and pillions we will base ourselves in key locations for a number of nights, both on the island of Sardinia and Corsica, which creates great flexibility in terms of local ‘off the bike’ activities as well as lots of great biking loops through rural countryside. Additionally it give participants the option of a “rest” day should they wish. The tour incorporates some very wellknown attractions along with some lesser known hidden gems and is certainly one of the biking highlights in Europe. Furthermore, for those looking to extent the duration of their trip there is an option to return your bike to our Memmingen base in Southern Germany at a later date allowing for further biking through, Tuscany Northern Italy, Dolomites, Austria, Switzerland, Black Forest, – Lake Garda, Lake Como, Stelvio Pass and much more.

    Straight into the good stuff. Strategically located on the northeastern corner of the Island we’re perfectly positioned to explore some of Sardinia’s finest roads and scenery.

    Days 3 & 4

    Today is all about the mountainous roads of Sardinia. 

    Day 5 – Arbatax to Bonfacio, Corsica

    Time to head north and say arrivederci to Sardinia for now as we head north in search of our afternoon ferry to Bonifacio, Corsica. Bonifacio is known for its lively marina and medieval cliff top citadel. The 13th-century Bastion de l’Etendard houses a small museum with exhibits on the town’s history. L’Escalier du Roi d’Aragon is 187 ancient steps carved into the cliff face. To the southeast, the uninhabited Lavezzi Islands nature reserve boasts granite boulders and sandy beaches. There is lots to see and do in Bonifacio and the surrounding area. “The marina, citadel, old town and the views across the harbour and surrounding cliffs are the individual highlights of Bonifacio – but it is the atmosphere and Mediterranean ambiance that will stay longest in your memory…

    Day 6 –  Bonifacio to Porto.

    An excellent days biking is in store with a mix of everything as we continue our journey north. The first part of the day starts off with fast flowing pristine roads and later changes to very scenic coastline which reduces our average speed.

    Day 7 –  Porto to L’Ille Rousse.

    Today we ride the most beautiful part of the Island along stunning coastal roads, over mountains and through gorges. It’s worth taking the time to enjoy and really soak it all up.

    Day 8 – Optional Ride-Out on the Cape Corse Peninsula

    Today is all about Cape Corse as we head north to explore the many picturesque fishing villages along the Cape Corse peninsula with stunning coastlines before meandering our way across the top of the island and back to our hotel in L’Ille Rousse

    Located on the northwest coast of Corsica Calvi is known for its beaches and crescent-shaped bay. A medieval citadel overlooks the marina from the bay’s western end, and is home to Baroque St-Jean-Baptiste Cathedral and cobbled streets. Restaurants line the harbour on the Quai Landry esplanade. Perched on a high hill a short distance inland, the chapel of Notre-Dame de la Serra has panoramic views of the area.

    Day 9 – L’Ille Rousse to Corte

    Inland today through some stunning gorges including the Gorges de la Restonica.

    Day 10 – Corte to Olbia, Sardinia

    Southbound once more, it’s all about Corsica’s rural mountains for a cross country route south to Bonifacio and our ferry back to Sardinia. Along the way we will share the road with the infamous wild pigs that roam the countryside and keep us focused on the road ahead. 


    Please note this is an outline route and may be subject to change. We will be providing a detailed itinerary pre-departure to include all hotel info and points of interest.


    As with all our guided tours we carefully select very good standard 3 or 4* hotels. Over the years we have built up a vast selection of tried and tested hotels around the world and we select hotels for their character and service rather than just on their star rating.  Hotel standards vary all over the world and a 4* in Africa or South America is not always the same as in Europe. In some more remote locations, we may use equivalent 3* hotels or the best available in the area, which could be a more family run establishment, with local character.

    Pre trip we provide you with Tour Specific Information that gives you detailed information about how to prepare and plan your tour, and what to expect when on tour.  These are a few FAQ that many people have. If you have any further queries or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.

    What bike is suitable to bring?
    Generally speaking we recommend adventure or touring style motorcycles as the most suitable.  However, sports, sport-touring and cruiser motorcycles may also be suitable subject to you being comfortable riding it for the distance and duration of the tour and that it has been properly prepared and adequately serviced with good tyres.

    What riding experience do I need?
    Generally speaking we recommend all participants to be experienced tourers in Europe and/or beyond. Obviously, some destinations are easier than others, as classified by our difficulty ratings, and should you have concerns please do not hesitate to contact us. It is your responsibility to ensure your motorcycling skills are up to the requirements for this tour. Obviously advanced riding skills increase enjoyment factor and reduce risk.

    Do I have to ride in a group?
    No!  We do not make you ride in convoy and we offer you the freedom to decide how you would like to ride. However, we find most people prefer to ride with the group without the need to navigate. We use either the ‘drop off’ or ‘buddy’ systems when group riding (depending on country and complexity of navigation); these are tried and tested systems of group riding and allow riders to ride at their own pace. Full details are provided at pre-trip briefings. Daily departure times are set every evening for the following morning depending on the days route and points of interest. If you prefer to ride on your own, we provide you with a map and route cards with recommendations for lunch or coffee stops and hotel information. We offer a very flexible approach with an emphasis on maximum enjoyment.

    Is this ride suitable for a passenger?
    Yes. Pillion passengers should be experienced tourers / travellers. 

    What is the average group size?
    Our groups are normally between 8 – 14 riders (some riders will have passengers). Most riders are from the Ireland, but we do also have overseas riders who may take part.

    What flights should i book?

    Please contact us for suggested flight paths, times and airlines.

    • In addition, you must have valid travel/medical insurance.
    • Visas as required Please ensure that you are fully aware of all passport and visa requirements and that you allow adequate time to obtain them.

    What will the weather be like?

    Depending on season / time of year we will advise expected weather conditions in the pre-trip information and also suggest the most suitable gear based on our experience. It is imperative that tour participants have suitably adequate gear. Please note our tour calendar is carefully planned taking into account the most suitable seasons / local weather for the destination. However, as much as we would like, we cannot always guarantee the best weather. Particularly considering the un-predictable climates the world has been experiencing.

    What about my health when I am abroad?
    You need to be physically fit and healthy and also take the necessary health precautions.  It is essential for you to consult your doctor or travel clinic for up-to-date medical travel information prior of travel, particularly if you have a pre-existing medical condition. Please ensure that you are fully aware of all official travel advice, local customs, current affairs, travel requirements and medical/travel advice. Please check with your GP regarding recommended inoculations. 

    Do I need Travel / Medical Insurance?
    It is a condition of you travelling with us that you are adequately insured.  Your insurance policy must cover you for the costs of any medical expenses, medical treatment or repatriation needed, due to injury or illness on this trip, including those that occur whilst motorcycle touring, either as the rider or a passenger.  It is important that your insurance company understands that the main purpose of your trip is motorcycle touring, using your own large capacity cc motorcycle or a rental motorcycle.  Your insurance must cover you for the full duration of the trip and for all countries we travel through.

    In addition, we strongly recommend that your insurance policy has cover for loss or damage to your personal belongings, delay at your outward or homeward point of departure, personal liability, overseas legal expenses and cancellation and curtailment. We do not refund your deposit simply because you failed to take out insurance in sufficient time. Some travel insurance policies do not cover motorcycle travel over a certain cc or for a prolonged duration.
