Overland Tours are a new adventure series in the Classic Bike Adventure program. Each tour lasts at least three weeks and covers multiple countries. Our Overland Tours are unforgettable adventures that combine the most spectacular landscapes and sights off the beaten path – at an unhurried pace and supported by an experienced team on the ground. A succession of local guides share their expertise and language skills to give you insights into their respective home countries, while your English-speaking motorcycle tour guide accompanies you for the duration of the journey. Our Overland Tours are adventures where anything can happen, and we say: bring it on! We take ferries, paved roads, trails, switchbacks and rugged mountain roads. We ride through high-altitude valleys, over alpine mountain passes, through steppes, deserts and salt flats. We spend the nights in unusual places – in caravanserais, yurt camps, monasteries, with local families and even in tree houses. We’re always looking for that very special experience. And we always go the extra mile to find it.
On our Munich-Tibet Overland Tour, we travel more than 12,500 kilometers. We follow the ancient Silk Road, ride to Everest Base Camp, and cross the Roof of the World on our way to Lhasa – a journey that has a prime place on the bucket lists of many riders. And while adventure is at the heart of the journey and part of the package of every Overland Tour, safety is a major priority. A support vehicle with a mechanic is always nearby, so we can stay cool and flexible – no matter what might arise. If you’re free to embark on the journey of a lifetime, adaptable when faced with the unforeseen, and interested in exploring different cultures and adventures, then you’ve come to the right place.
