LISBON, Portugal, April 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Portugal Motorcycle Tours announced it will host an exclusive and limited VIP motorcycle adventure tour with bestselling author and global motorcycle explorer Allan Karl. Karl will ride his motorcycle and guide a small group through the remote and often forgotten region of Portugal's north and the Douro Valley. Limited to just 10 motorcycle riders and their passengers, the tour takes off from Lisbon, Portugal's capital city on July 22, 2016.
The seven-day tour is planned and managed by Portugal Motorcycle Tours, the leading motorcycle tour firm in the country. "We are extremely excited to bring Allan Karl and his motorcycle to Portugal," stated Miguel Oliveira, president of Portugal Motorcycle Tours. "Allan will ride with our guests and share stories of his global motorcycle adventures and guiding fellow riders through the sweeping roads, delicious regional food, and historical wines of Portugal."
Perhaps most well known for his three-year solo journey around the world by motorcycle, Karl is the author of "FORKS: A Quest for Culture, Cuisine, and Connection," his bestselling book that chronicles that journey through stories of adventure, inspiring photography, and recipes from each of the countries he traveled. "I love the people, food, and roads of Portugal," said Karl, "This is an incredible opportunity to experience Portuguese culture and cuisine while connecting and riding the best roads in Europe."
The week-long tour begins in Lisbon and heads north along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean to Porto and the mouth of the Douro River where for centuries estates and houses have crafted Port wines and cuisine inspired by the freshest seafood. The ride continues through the Douro Valley, through remote towns, and forgotten villages. Riders will visit Tras-os-Montes, a remote region frozen in time, and to Minho, near the border of Spain and home to Vinho Verde.
Riders on the exclusive tour are provided with BMW GS adventure motorcycles. The all inclusive tour costs $9,673 for riders and $7,594 for passengers, and also includes all meals, and accommodation at 5-star hotels. The tour is limited to just 10 motorcycles.
