So you don’t have much time, but yearn for escape and adventure? This original motorcycle tour, lasting just a few days, takes you by Royal Enfield into the Himalaya, through the areas of Kumaon and Garhwal. The mesmerising roads of Uttarkhand wind through a sumptuous setting. Picturesque little villages, Hindu temples, pine forests, terraced crops, and unbeatable views of the mountains. Hungry for strong sensations, you’ll rack up hairpin bends on steep cliff-edge roads and the occasional bumpy trail, in a region as yet barely explored.

The riders' opinions

Karl
A once in a lifetime experience!

“Made the 14 day Rajasthan rumble and it has been an amazing ride. We had breathtaking moments, crossing small villages and having chai teas with locals. Amazing hotels and sightseeing. If you a bike enthusiast and like exotic travels, you should do this trip. The guide and local staff managed it, not being a touristic thing.”

Bern Lazareff
Great experience in the Himalayas, …

“Great experience in the Himalayas, thanks to our very professional guide, Bernard, who shared his extensive knowledge of the local culture, showed tremendous patience and understanding; although some riders were definitely not quite on the level, he managed to include them without hampering the group's progress, bravo! Thanks to his deep sense of humor and many anecdotes, the evenings also were a delight, and we felt welcome when meeting his many friends. Can't wait to do another tour with our special guide.”

Vintage Rides SrI Lanka

“I was born in Sri Lanka but I was taken to parts I didn't know existed. Excellent knowledge of which routes to take to avoid the sometimes hellish traffic. The bikes were great fun : this is despite me being 125 kilos on a 350 - impressed ! They seem to be constantly reviewing their hotels which can only mean a better experience I would recommend this company to my biking friends”
