5 Best Motorcycle Routes in Europe

by Sarah B. Writer

Over the past 10 years, moto tourism has become very popular. A motorcycle gives travellers more freedom and the opportunity to explore new places more closely. That's why people buy more and more motorcycles. If you have it too and you dream about adventure, then we suggest reading this article. Yarkoweb has compiled the list of 5 best European routes for all motorcycle owners.

1) Transfagarasan

This place is deservedly called the most beautiful mountain serpentine in Europe. This highway located in the Carpathians connects Wallachia and Transylvania. You've probably heard something about this road as it has appeared many times in the Top Gear show. The highway was built in 1974, and it immediately attracted thousands of tourists who came to see beautiful landscapes, pine forests, and mountain lakes like Izvorul Muntelui.

The Transfagarasan is a unique road which contains challenging turns and plenty of adventures.

2) Transalpina

Another beautiful track located in Romania. The Transalpina is one of the most beautiful and longest motorcycle routes in Europe. In addition to natural splendour, riders will see huge dams holding back mountain rivers and bridges located at high altitude. The track was opened in 1938. Until that moment, it was used by Roman legions.

Please note, the Transalpina is available only in summer as it is narrow, plus you will meet many turns. In addition, when travelling in summer, you will see more landscapes!

3) Trollstigen

Have you ever been to Norway? This is a large and beautiful country with centuries-old traditions and roads that are great for travelling on a motorcycle. The narrow route with a length of 106 kilometres contains 11 extreme turns with low stone fences. They had been building Trollstigen for around 8 years, and it was finally opened in 1936. If you want to try this road, then choose a suitable day between May and October.

During the trip, you will see beautiful landscapes, Stigfossen waterfall, and mountain peaks. To attract tourists, the local authorities have established cafes and shops where you can have a snack and buy souvenirs. Do not forget to take a camera!

4) San Boldo Pass

The mountain highway located between Tovena and Trichiana has become a very popular tourist destination. Lovers of motorcycles and fast rides come here to improve their skills and enjoy the unique Italian flavour. The San Boldo Pass track is quite high (about 2,316 ft), so you will come across many sharp turns. Only throughout one segment with a length of 700 meters, a rider will overcome 7 turns!

The San Boldo Pass was built in 1938. Over 1,000 men and women worked hard so that you could try your bike here. In fact, the track is open 365 days but it may be closed due to bad weather conditions. Obviously, it is not suitable for feeble hearts and forceless hands.

5) Lacets de Montvernier

From the side, this road is similar to the famous descent in one of the areas of San Francisco. The Lacets de Montvernier is one of the most beautiful and at the same time dangerous roads not only in France but throughout the world. There is a 180-degree turn every 100-200 meters. The rise begins at an altitude of 505 m above sea level. The track is quite narrow, so you can travel on your motorcycle without restrictions.

In 2018, The Lacets de Montvernier hosted a legendary Tour de France event. This proves the popularity of the track among travellers and tourists. The largest number of motorcycle owners visits the mountain track in spring and summer. In autumn, it often rains, and the road may be closed.

All the tracks are unique...They give access to beautiful landscapes, amazing reliefs, and cool emotions. Choose your favourite place and refuel your motorcycle!
