The photo album
We are on our way to Garnisch-Partenkirchen to celebrate 90 years of BMW, with 33 passionate bikers.
By the 5th stage we had already conquered the hilly terrains of Iseran and of Stelvio, Umbrail, Fluelapass, Oberalpass, the hills of the Furka, Grimsel and Susten, the breath-taking Klausenpass and the reputed Austrian Silvrettastrasse.
The Alps loom over us and the photos are here:
The Great BMW Tour got under way this morning. Setting off from Val d’Isère in the bright sunshine! Todays’ program includes the Hill of Iseran, the lake of Mount Cenis, the Italian Piémont and Lake Maggiore. An evening on the patio of the hotel on the banks of Lake Maggiore and tomorrow a boat trip to take us towards Lake Como; But for now it’s time to fall asleep to the sound of the lake lapping at its’ shores…
We’ve just got back from our last recon to prepare the Great BMW Tour – Garmisch 2013 (29 June / 07 July) and it promises to be an exceptional trip to mark the 90th birthday of the German brand.
We’ll drive 1500Km through one of the most beautiful routes in the Alpes, the Great Lakes of Italy, across the highest mountains of Europe. France, Italy, Switzerland, Austria and Germany, an unforgettable expedition!
