Welcome to Austria!

The Austrian Indian Riders proudly invite you to the first "Austrian Indian Tour" . A tourlenght of 240 miles with breathtaking mountainroads and over snowframed passes, green meadows and thru shadespending woods, ridden at two days. We stay at beautiful hotels and will enjoy typical austrian food. A tour - service car will ensure that everyone returns savely and with his Indian.

Just to answer the most asked question: The Way between Lofer (End of Tour) and Bischofshofen (Start) can be easily driven by motorcycle (45mls). On the other hand, I offer a transfer with our car on sunday, to pick up trailers parked in Bischofshofen...
