The Switchback Challenge is a 7-day Adventure designed for riders who wish to maximize their time riding the great motorcycling roads of the Alps while minimizing hotel changes. Riders will depart Munich for Pfunds, a municipality of the district of Landeck in Tyrol, Austria. Pfunds, located only 5 kilometers from the border with Switzerland, will be the Adventure Center they will call home for four consecutive nights. Riders will enjoy a 4-night stay in the “biker friendly” Hotel Sonne.. Luggage will have arrived at the hotel by the time the first riding day is done. For the next four days a local tour leader will lead rides through Austria, Switzerland and Italy, ensuring that riders enjoy the very best riding the Alps has to offer. After four nights in Pfunds, riders will return to Munich for the final celebration dinner. The Switchback Challenge is ideal for single riders or for couples traveling two-up. Non-riding companions (or companions who do not wish to ride every day) can opt for an enjoyable day at the hotel/resort.
