3 days by Motorcycle just for girls in Piemonte, Verdon and Provence: our perfect tour for female bikers

The mountain passes, the spectacular Verdon Gorges, the lavender bloom in an unforgettable biking trip reserved for women motorcyclists

In this special Tour, designed for those who love to chew up miles in amazing scenery, we bring you up to France, in the Verdon natural park.

This is journey that we really love, a destination that surprises every time in front of spectacle of nature: the Verdon gorges, the Lake Sainte Croix, and, to get there, the mountain with its Alpine passes that are perfect for motorcycles.

Last year we did it in late August with some riders, and we loved it!

This year we have changed the time of year to take advantage of the lavender bloom that offers different landscapes, and the we have modified the route slightly to better enjoy the lake. 

They will be three days of wonderful motorcycle riding and fun, an all-female trip not to be missed!

Total kms: approximately 800

For us, the Just for Girls tour has become an unmissable event. 

Particularly by motorcycle, traveling together with other girls is a totally different experience. In our group, we wait on each other, and nobody gets left behing. We joke around, challenge each other and tell about ourselves. 

In our Just for Girls trips we experienced drivers and beginners, there are friends that already knew each other and others that met here.

We also have a Facebook group, Viaggio in moto tra amiche con Giroola, containing now more than 650 female riders, that we invite you to join

Thanks to this “Just for Girls” idea, we saw girls getting a motorcycle driving license, start riding after a hard moment, get the necessary courage to start traveling alone and to start a new phase in life.

And then, simply, we like to go, try out new things, travel, and doing it with other girls is totally different. We are We are waiting for you!

There is obviously no difference in requirements and technical skills in a “Just for Girls” tour compared to any other tour, the difference lies only in the company, which is all feminine!

Our motorbike tours are designed to be easy, relaxing and enjoyable. For this reason, we keep the number of participants so small (maximum 8), in order to adapt the rhythm and routes to the capabilities of the group. No one gets left behind, and that's why our motorcycle tours are suitable for beginners.

Driving will, however, be a significant part of the trip, so we recommend to self-assess your driving skills and endurance honestly before deciding to take a motorcycle trip.

This tour, however, does not require any exceptional driving skill:

  • The tour is divided into short and simple stages (averaging 170 km per day).
  • There will be for sure some tight roads with hairpin turns, so you should be able to steer the bike in these situations.
  • We will not drive too fast, we will enjoy the road, the curves and the landscape.
  • there will be fun and enjoyable roads during all the tour.

If you want Elena to help you evaluate better the required level of expertise, you can contact her via e-mail at elena@giroola.com , she will be happy to help!

Motorcycle Tour Giroola skill guide

This itinerary is about 800 km long, suitable for those who love to grind kilometers.

You can come to a tour with us using any kind of motorcycle.

There might be some stretch on a motorway for some reason, even if normally we stay away from those, so the motorbike needs to be over 250cc.

This tour will be entirely on paved roads, so you can join with your motorcycle, or with the one you like, it should only have good tires and be well maintained.

If you would like to rent a bike for the trip, we are at your disposal: mark it in your reservation or contact Elena by emal at elena@giroola.com and we will help you find the best ride possible!

Which motorcycle
Elena
Elena

Motorbikes are her thing. When she's not riding, she is dancing, country style.

Precise, strong, smiling and energetic, she's stubborn and never gives up. Expert in packing up for any trip, she's the one who offers you a spare toothbrush when you forgot yours!

Never without: dancing boots

Favourite quote: "Dance first. Think later"

Driving a motorcycle is all about freedom. We know you are an independent traveller, and we want you to enjoy these days without having to worry about anything and leaving you the freedom to choose and decide for yourself.

Our rule is simple: if an activity is planned in the tour, it's included in the price. 

Accommodation always includes breakfast, a nice moment to start the day together.

Lunches are also included in this tour: this way during the day it will be easier to organize the meals, to get back into the saddle straight away.

When you travel by motorcycle it’s nice in the evening to meet up with Elena, who is going to travel with you, will be happy to organize things for the group, according to different possibilities discovered during the day. You will also have the chance to spend some alone time. Freedom, as we were saying.

So, this tour will include:

  • assistance from Elena, that will be in the tour with you, will help you, will tell you stories, legends and facts about our Piedmont.
  • 2 nights in Bed and Breakfast in a double room, breakfast included (Single room supplement: 50 euros total)
  • 3 lunches
  • and many more surprises!

We plan to spoil you, so expect surprises!

And if you are thinking: it would be cheaper to just go with some friends! That’s true, however here you get someone that takes care of everything, in a small groups where no one is left behind, and who is at work so that you can have fun and not have to look down at the GPS at every intersection, concentrating on the driving! If you want to read more, we have an article on our blog explaining this: https://www.giroola.com/blog/5-reasons-go-motorcycle-trip-guide

We want you to savour the best of Italian hospitality, and we are not talking about fake-luxury hotels that all look the same. We will take you to places with character, authentic little B&Bs where you will sleep well and you will taste home made pies for breakfast, mountain lodges with stunning views, or particularly interesting hotels with a story to tell.

All rooms will have private bathrooms, and breakfast is always included.

We will choose for every departure the best solution considering the season and our guests' needs, and we'll send you the complete information via email before the start of the tour.

For example, one of our favourite places is La Ida Bed & Breakfast in Villareggia, our hometown, where our friend Sara, an architect and a painter, welcomes her guests with authentic kindness. 

La Ida

This tour is perfect for solo travellers:

  • we take care of everything
  • you are independent and can choose whether and when to share meals and your free time with the group
  • you get to know people from all around the world in a small group

We'll start with a coffee (yes, real espresso!) or a juice and pastry, get to know the group, and by the time we jump on board and start exploring you'll be among friends.

So, solo travellers are very welcome on our tours, and if you are ok with sharing a double/triple room with other members of the group we'll send you an email after the booking and you will tell us your preferences (e.g. girl ok to share a bedroom with other girls only, etc).

If however you prefer us to book a single room for you, it is available during the reservation process for an additional fee..

If there are no other solo travellers in your tour or if there is no possibility to match your preferences (or your roommates happen to snore too much!), your single room will be on us, no additional charge will be required.

Italian food fits all stomachs. So if you you are a vegetarian, or vegan, or you simply prefer not eat meat, there are plenty of possibilities.

Cereals and vegetables are the basis of the Mediterranean diet, and Piemonte is no exception.

We are the risotto experts (and it's gluten free), our most traditional dish has no meat ("bagna caoda", a delicious garlic and anchovies sauce, served hot with any kind of vegetable),we have dozens of typical kinds of cheese, and pasta with a simple tomato sauce, with crunchy breadcrumbs instead of Parmigiano is a vegan must-try.

Adatto vegetariani e vegani

The Special Verdon Itinerary starts in Carmagnola (TO) at 9 am

Our idea is to meet in a special place, central and easy to get to, and get to know each other in front of a croissant and cappuccino before starting our day together.

If you like, we can book you a room the night before in our small town on top of a hill, Villareggia, and Elena will pick you up in the morning to go together to the meeting point with the rest of the group, or you can find accommodation in Carmagnola directly.

If you want to talk with us about the details or getting more ideas about what to see and do in Piedmont before and after this tour, Paola  is at your disposal and she’s looking forward to helping you.

We will send you all the details about the meeting point before the tour begins.

Motorcycle tour ONLY WOMEN !!!

I did a three-day motorcycle tour in Piedmont for women only and ... what can I say ... it was wonderful! Our guide Elena was really good at calibrating mileage, places to visit, breaks. Very beautiful and varied roads passing from the mountains at the foot of Monviso to the hills of the Albese and Monferrato, among woods, vineyards, sanctuaries, characteristic villages, various attractions, tastings of local products, cooking lessons and even relaxation at the thermal springs. If I think back, it seems to me impossible to have done so much in just three days. The restaurants all excellent as well as the hotels. And then Elena is a great connoisseur of the streets for which you leave the streets of great flow to go into beautiful streets and little traffic. All very nice experience absolutely to recommend and maybe repeat. Even if you are Piedmontese, let yourself be tempted because you will be able to discover new and unexpected places and if instead you are not waiting for it, you will fall in love with this wonderful region! Thanks Giroola! (automatic translation by Google)
