White Rose Tour 3 Dolomites & Alps
Mapsman have teamed up with fellow adventurers and motorcycle touring company White Rose Tours to provide a suggestion of additional maps and guides to accompany their tours for 2018.
To be expected from a quality tour operator White Rose Tours provide detailed turn by turn instructions and GPS maps for the tour but we believe it is always useful to have a map or two as well.
Our suggestions for this tour are:
Michelin National Map 730 - Austria
Michelin Local Map 354 - Trentino
Michelin Regional Map 552 - Switzerland South West
Michelin Local Map 328 -Ain, Haute-Savoie
Michelin Local Map 321 -Doubs, Jura

Fantastic scenery and great biking roads in the Italian, Swiss and French Alps
If you enjoyed last years Italian & Swiss Alps tour then you are going to enjoy this. The tour will appeal to experienced riders who enjoy the thrill of riding mountain passes which the Italian, Swiss and French Alps have in abundance. However, there will be routes plus two bases which will provide alternatives for those that like a more relaxed pace. The tour has a 2 night stop in the Dolomites and a further 2 night stop in Chamonix Mont Blanc, allowing you to unpack and enjoy day ride-outs.
Our first night will be on the French-German border from which we cut across the Black Forest to our 4 star hotel on the Austrian Border. From here it is possible to ride the Silvretta (2032M) and Timmelsjoch (2474m) on our way to the Dolomites. On departure we give a choice of routes, I am sure you have heard of them, you can take either the Gavia (2652M), or the one on everyones bucket list, the Stelvio Pass (Stilflersjoch) which climbs to 2757m, and has over 40 hairpin bends.
After a further night in Italy, we head westwards past the glitz of St.Moritz and over the Furkha Pass to our final 2 night stop in Chamonix Mont Blanc.
On departure we take one of our favourite cross-country routes through France for a final nights stay near Troyes.
This is an Escorted Tour which means that although the guide will be with you, you are responsible for doing your own navigation. We provide a Tour Pack which will include a full itinerary, suggested route directions, Gpx waypoints and hotel location. This system suits many people, as it allows them to ride at their own pace and style, either alone or in small groups. However, if you prefer, you may ride with the guide, who will act as your escort throughout the tour.
