"Quite simply, the roads covered on the Mountains Tour are like the very best of Wales and Scotland with the Alps thrown in."

- Stuart Knowles, Birmingham, England

"The trip was one of a lifetime. The weather was perfect, the lodging was top-notch and the food was incredible...a top-notch operation with an eye on detail...Superb motorcycle roads, classic villages and magnificent scenery make the mountains of northern New England one of the best motorcycling destinations in the United States. The best part of the trip were the people we met and the friends we made. Dinner was always a time of lots of laughs, good cheer and reflection on our days ride. We had a blast and hope we can do it again sometime."

- Kooster & Melinda McCallister, New Jersey

"Thank you for the fabulous trip...so much fun and... so many awesome curves.  Thank you for an exhilarating, relaxing, and fun vacation! I can not wait for the next!! The trip itself was first class all the way. Even after you left in the evening the whole crew kept talking about how everything from the accommodations, the food, and the tour guides were spectacular." 

- Nathalie & Christopher Lestage, Boston, Massachusetts

"You have some of the best roads in the country right in your back yard."

- David & Ruth Anne Hannigan (inventors/makers of the famous 
Hannigan fairings, sidecars, trailers and trikes)

Superb motorcycle roads, classic villages and magnificent scenery make the mountains of northern New England one of the best motorcycling destinations in the United States. No rider has truly experienced the beauty of North America until he or she has ridden through the spectacular landscape of the Green Mountains, the White Mountains, the Adirondacks and the Berkshires.

The Northeastern Mountains Tours will show you why riders are so passionate about this area. You'll ride the roads that have made the region famous but you'll also be introduced to lesser known, yet equally superb, back roads through the gaps, notches and classic villages of northern New England. Both the riding and the views will stay in your memory for a long time. We’ll show you this area as only local riders who love it could do.   

During the spring, summer and fall, the weather in New England is excellent for riding. On hot days, there will be various places where you can stop to swim in local lakes, streams, rivers or gorges with waterfalls. You might choose to visit the Indian Motorcycle museum or an exotic car museum, tour the Ben and Jerry’s ice cream factory, visit the former home of Norman Rockwell or enjoy an historic New England village.

"Thanks for a such a wonderful tour. We both really enjoyed it, and are looking forward to doing more with you. The group size was perfect, the accommodations lovely, the food something to really look forward to each evening, the mix of people just delightful, the roads a great mix of challenging and simply enjoyable, and to top it all off, Rob and I became noticeably (at least to us!) better riders ... primarily by following you! We feel very lucky that our first experience with a touring company had so many wonderful elements, and attribute it to all your hard work, attentiveness, preparation and extensive local expertise. Thanks for making it such a success."

- Holly and Rob Berkley, Summit, New Jersey

You can explore to your heart's content because the hassles have been dealt with; you won’t have to end the day early to look for good food and lodging. Instead, after a great day of riding, you'll sit down to an elegant dinner and then have time to relax by yourself, or with new friends, inside the inn or out on the porch under the stars. You'll fall asleep later in a luxurious New England bed room, wake to a full breakfast and head out to enjoy more superb riding.
