Highlights Verlag Motorcycle Guide to the French Alps
The highest passes in Europe
Once you’ve wound your way up a French Alpine pass, you’ll usually be smitten by a certain notion. The notion that something special awaits you here in the western part of the main ranges of the Alps. The vista sweeps over very rough and solitary terrain. You get the feeling of being on another planet. The seclusion is intense, civilisation seems to be very far away. Motorcycling in the French Alps is clearly a unique affair. The highest passes in Europe, roads with the most curves in the Alps, fascinating nature - this region is a must for every motorcyclist. To make this trip as pleasant as possible, we have released our 'French Alps' volume. It contains ten selected day trips, the classic climbs such as Galibier, Restefond/Bonette and Izoard as well as insider tips such as Saisies, Sarenne and Allos. Each route is shown on the original RV map with a scale of 1: 300,000. In addition to an exact route description, you can expect a lot of information and interesting facts about the country and its people. And of course we have listed great biker hotels and comfortable campsites again as in each of our travel books.
