Darjeeling & Sikkim – High on History

Colonial hill stations, steam train rides, remote valleys, monasteries and views to the high, high Himalaya – and that’s before we start on the motorcycling! This tour combines the usual Blazing Trails back-up and support, carefully considered overnight stays and happy-rider routing with an adventurous edge and some surprises thrown in.

A highlight of the journey is colonial Darjeeling, with its bustling markets, the oldest railway in India and a blend of mountain cultures and religions. But it is the wild remoteness of Sikkim and views of the mighty peaks that will really stir the soul. With a landscape less visited, India’s least populated state has quiet roads, running through still forests and although road surfaces vary, meaning in some places the riding can be challenging, no trip through beautiful North East India is ever going to be dull.

Himalayan Foothills – The Bends go on Forever

Our Himalayan Foothills tour is designed to offer some of the best riding and natural beauty on offer, without breaking the bank or taking riders into the extreme environments that characterise our Ladakh and Spiti Valley tours. Travelling the minor back-roads of Himachal Pradesh's hill country, we will take in stunning views, experience rural life in the mountains and visit historic sites, both Indian in orgin and leftovers of the British Raj. This tour begins with a train ride to Shimla (including a ride on the famous Kalka-Shimla 'toy train') and from here on in, it's twisty roads all the way!

Shimla to Leh – Riding the World’s Highest Roads

 This tour is a full-on adventure, a journey taking you to wild places of incomparable beauty. It is also a challenge; a trip to the edge of beyond that takes in the Himalaya's five highest 'motorable' roads, all crossing 16,000ft (4875m) and including Khardung La, the World's highest. We will camp beside sparkling high-altitude lakes, cross deserts and scale the high passes to take in lifetime views over the biggest mountain range there is.

Our route is adventure all the way, a Himalayan odyssey traversing the magnificent Spiti Valley, before travelling the planet's highest roads into Ladakh.

The Blazing Trails team has been running Himalayan motorcycle tours since 2000 and it is this experience, allied to precise organization, that allows us to guide riders to such places. As with all our trips an experienced leader and support crew are with you every mile, providing expert guidance and mechanical or medical assistance if required. But despite our enormous local knowledge, a ride through the Himalaya is never going to be without its challenges and surprises...

Kerala – The Best of South Indian Biking

This outstanding tour covers some of the most scenic, exotic and diverse areas of southern India, from steamy coastal waterworlds to the cool air and uplifting vistas of Kerala's mountains. You will be riding through the pristine forests and jungle gorges of Kerala's many national parks and have the opportunity to spot many of the region's wild animals along the way. Highlights of this trip also include a night on the backwaters in a luxury houseboat and time to explore the historical trading port of Cochin.

If you want to experience the best motorcycling destinations that South India has to offer, with the level of back-up that only Blazing Trails delivers, then this is the trip for you.

Spiti Valley – The Adventure of a Lifetime

A tour here is to visit a place like no other and to call it a 'holiday', is to do the experience no justice whatsoever. Even to try and get close to explaining the sheer scale of this adventure, the raw, untouched beauty of its locations and the endless fascination of its peoples and cultures, carries with it a degree of futility, but we will blunder on nonetheless… Blazing Trails have been running Himalayan tours through the Spiti Valley since 2000 and it is this experience, allied to precise organisation, that allows us to guide riders to such places. As with all our trips an experienced leader and support crew are with you every mile, providing expert guidance and mechanical or medical assistance if required. But despite our enormous local knowledge, a ride through the Himalaya is never going to be without its challenges and surprises...
