Firstly, our 21 day Ultimate European Adventure brings you to the best of what Europe has to offer. Imagine a three week route departing Celtic Rider then taking a short ferry ride from Dublin Port to northern France, riding south through the French countryside, through Nantes, Bordeaux, Lourdes before setting off over the Pyrenees, meandering your way over the curvy, twisty roads, skipping into Spain, and then Andorra. From there you’ll make your way across south France, into Northern Italy and then into Germany, dotting in and out of Austria along the way. Turning West then into Switzerland, and darting across northern France. The towns and city’s that we have selected are second to none. From Calais you’ll take the 30 minute ferry to England, and skip across England into Wales, before returning to Ireland. You’ll take in old English villages, visit the D-Day landing sites and the US and Canada cemeteries, enjoy fantastic roads in France, ride over the World famous Passo del Stelvio in the Alps, breathe in the warm Tuscan air of northern Italy, experience beautiful UNESCO cities along the way, swim in the Mediterranean Sea, pop into the French Riviera, hit the cool fresh Pyrenees of southern France and northern Spain, with the option to tour the famous Wild Atlantic Way coastal route upon your return to Ireland.
