For trips in far flung destinations we include bike hire in the price and for those leaving from the UK we can arrange hire too if needed.

Want to explore England, Wales, Scotland or Ireland? We’ve got you covered. Heading across the channel? Well as well as Western European destinations we also run self guided trips down through Morocco to the Sahara Desert, as far East as Romania and as far North as the Arctic Circle in Norway. For those looking to tour farther afield how about flying into the US and exploring the West Coast on one of our rental bikes?

Our Self Guided trips follow the same proven routes and stay in the same hotels as our Guided tours, you receive a highly detailed tour pack with all the pre tour preparation and advice you could wish for and GPS routes with daily stops for coffee and lunch as well as sightseeing options pre programmed in. We book your hotels, arrange crossings, meals and much more so you can just relax and ride and while you may not have one of our guides along for the trip the team in the office is only ever a phone call away.

Magellan Rider stopped on the side of the road

Have you ever come back from a trip and after speaking to other bikers realised you missed a famous road or sight? Do you want to go on a tour but don’t have weeks or months to set aside planning every last detail and ensuring you stay in great hotels? Maybe you’re new to touring and want to ensure you have a smooth trip with achievable daily mileages and nice stops along the way. Well our Self Guided Tours answer all these prayers and more.

Every year we help hundreds of riders, couples and groups of friends explore the world on their motorcycles. We are also the tour company of choice for many IAM, ROSPA and local bike clubs taking the hassle out of organising their group trips. If there is a trip you would like to ride and you don’t see it on our site then just get in touch as we offer many more options off the menu.

Hire your dream bike

If you don’t own or don’t want to take your own bike we can arrange bike hire for your trip. Select from our range of rental machines or if you’ve always dreamed of a special bike or something exotic just get in touch and we’ll try and source it for you.
