AVID MotoTours goes motorcycle touring

Although AVID MotoTours is a new company, it is led by an "old" face in the tour industry. Wanting to continue to lead people on motorcycle tours to see and experience North America and Europe, Karen Thomson has established this new company. Two tours are described here. Other tours include the American Southwest, the Colorado Rockies, the Alps, Central Italy and Southern Italy.

North American and European Tours; Guided Group Tours; Custom Tours; Self-Guided Tours; Custom Itineraries
Guided group tours include routing and information along with guided support. Your hotels & many meals are included in the tour price. Meet new friends or bring your own. Each night we gather to share the day and learn what is in store for the next day. In North America, use your own motorcycle by riding or shipping it to our start point, or rent one from one of the many available rental companies. In Europe we can provide rented motorcycles from a varied fleet.

Custom tours can be planned for groups of any size to your specifications. AVID MotoTours leads you to the best roads and scenery in the area you wish to travel and makes arrangements for you.

If you don’t want a guide, but need help with the routing, planning and arrangements contact us for a self-guided tour following one of our pre-established tour plans or have a custom itinerary made up just for you.

Volcano Ride – This tour covers the geologic history, great riding roads and scenery of the Pacific Northwest. It covers many of the volcanic features of the area including the awe inspiring Mt. St. Helens in Washington, California’s Mt Lassen, Oregon’s Crater Lake, and Three Sisters peaks. The tour runs between San Francisco and Southern Washington State. Variety is the name of the game from the Pacific coast to mountains to high desert plains and the Columbia Gorge. Come find out what you’ve been missing.

Big Sky – Montana, Wyoming and South Dakota hold hidden treasures below the Big Sky. We tour the Black Hills, Bighorn Mountains, Yellowstone National Park, Glacier National Park and many of the great Rocky Mountain roads. You can’t beat this for real Wild West fun.
