You’re greeted at the airport and transfer to your hotel. Make the most of this first day to explore the old town of Panaji: a fascinating blend of cultures and influences, with a Portuguese legacy.

D2 / Old Panjim - Dandeli - 165 Km

Your first day on the road: get to know your Royal Enfield and begin the adventure. We exit Old Panaji and cruise eastwards through Goa state. Across a small narrow road lost in the middle of the woods, we reach Mahevev Temple, the most ancient in Goa. We continue to ride in the mountains, within the borders of a protected natural parc, where we will stop for the night.

D3 / Dandeli - Badami - 210 Km

Day four begins with a tour of the outstanding site of Hampi which has Unesco World Heritage status: a vast archaeological complex which exudes huge charm on an early-morning discovery.

D5 / Hampi - 60 to 80 Km

Start today’s loop in the rays of the morning sun, a treat for the senses in the heart of this unique site. The wealthy princes of Vijayanagar built temples and palaces which were admired by travelers between the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries. Then enjoy your afternoon to ride a little more in the area with your guide, or simply relax.

D6 / Hampi - Gabadi - 265 Km

Dazzled by the discovery of Hampi the day before, we saddle up again today, this time to explore natural wonders! A day-long 125-mile ride on small roads through plantations to Bhadra Wildlife Sanctuary by the end of the day: the ochre hues of the plains and rocks of Hampi give way to stunning blues and greens.

D7 / Gabadi - Matthuga (Jogg Falls) - 190 Km

A day packed with emotion with your Royal Enfield! On the programme: you channel your inner Indiana Jones, searching for the lost fort of Kavalerduga, which boasts sublime views over the surrounding area; climb Mount Kodachadri, the highest local peak (1,300m/4,400 ft); ride a ferry across the lagoon... and round off the day in thrilling style at Jog Falls, the second-highest waterfall in India!

D8 / Matthuga - Palolem - 200 Km

Start along the Sharavati River, a downhill motorcycle worthy of the most beautiful circuits! Before that, an off-road experience - optional - that you will not forget, is offered. Finally, we indulge in the sound of the wind in the palms and birds in the seaside setting and relaxing along the coast. Walk to the beach with your feet in a small river, or laze in your bungalow, enjoy the change of scenery as you wish.

D9 / Palolem - Velsao - 60 Km

A short bike stage, but that will show you the most beautiful and wildest part of the Goa coast. Stop at a beach very little frequented, then a small ruin on the road, the old Portuguese fort of Cabo de Rama, planted on an impregnable cliff and all of whose surroundings have remained wild, which will offer you in one last view one more beautiful look on the coast. You’re transferred to Goa international airport, where our service ends.

The riders' opinions

Vintage Rides - Simply the Best.

“Having joined two tours in India previously with Vintage Rides I have no hesitation in booking a third and recommending this company as experts in their field to anyone contemplating a guided tour on the sub continent or the far east. Vintage Rides is a French company and as expected many of the riders are French speakers but it is not a barrier. I speak English and have only a little of the French language but I have been welcomed by both the tour leaders and the other riders without any problems at all. Communication is not a problem in the brotherhood off the bikers. The tour leaders know their stuff and take you to places off the well beaten tourist track, always mindful of one's safety. The support team for mechanical issues that can occasionally arise with the robust Royal Enfield 500cc Bullet bikes and for transport of luggage and local knowledge remove any concerns, just sit back and enjoy the ride.”

“Very professionally run with experienced guides who, through their local knowledge, can get you to out of the way places the average traveller would not have access to.”

Best trip. Ever.

“Excellent, almost effortless trip. We were looked after well. The route was a wonderful combination of easy riding and modest challenge. The staff was tolerant beyond any reasonable human's capacity. Lodgings both exotic and comfortable. A better trip can not be imagined.”
