All about the FTT Continental 5-11 September 2019.

We always look forward to our Group Tours but the 2019 FTT Continental tour has got us very excited. Not only will we be driving on the highest roads in Europe in the Swiss Alps, this tour also includes some of our favourite routes through France and Germany.

After spending the first night in a lakeside hotel on the edge of the Champagne region we will head to the Black Forest and the B500, the road famously used by Ducati test riders.

For 2 nights you will be based in the foothills of the Swiss Alps near Lucerne. From here you will be able to complete a loop including the Susten, San Gotthard, Nufenen, Furka and Grimsel passes. We are confident this will be one of the best days you have ever had in your car!

To make sure the journey home will not be an anticlimax you will also spend time in the fabulous Vosges Mountains.

On each day you will be able to follow a direct route so you can relax at your hotel and visit local places of interest, or choose a longer all day option to make the most of the excellent roads available. Our custom satnav files and detailed maps will enable you to concentrate on enjoying your car and the scenery instead of worrying about which way to go.

The survey we conducted after the 2018 FTT Continental confirmed a tour to the Swiss Alps would be popular. To maintain the high standards we aim to achieve the number of places on this tour is limited so please complete the booking form as soon as possible or contact us if you have any questions.
