Our Self Guided motorcycle Tours

***We’re taking bookings now for 2021 and 2022 and while we aren’t running any Guided trips this year all is not lost for 2020. As some restrictions are starting to lift we are offering a curated selection of our Self Guided trips around the UK with departures from early September. These can easily be done, even in small groups, in a socially distanced manner. If you want to get out on your bike in 2020 please get in touch and we’ll run you through the latest options.***

Our menu of Self Guided motorcycle tours covers fantastic destinations from all around the world. Read more below about how our self guided trips work and use the filters to find your next trip. Magellan’s Self Guided tours give you the same great experience but on dates to suit you, on your own motorcycle or we can arrange a rental for you.

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, motorcycle rental if needed and much more so you can just relax and ride.

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. Fancy something on the other side of the Atlantic? How about a roadtrip in the USA, an adventure in Alaska or riding all the way across Canada?

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 advanced rider and local 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.

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. Hire a bike.

All our guides are experienced motorcyclists, have ridden the routes before and most speak multiple languages giving you the inside track on your adventure. Discover more reasons to choose Magellan.
