Amazing road trips in Europe rely on two important factors: a great route and a fantastic luxury sports car from a top marque. Without those vital components, you might as well stay at home.
Finding the inspiration for a memorable road trip is easy. You may have watched a TV programme or read a travel article and noted the trip in your “Things to do before I die” bucket list. The best ideas for tours in Europe usually come from someone who’s been there and done it, so with that in mind, we have listed some of our absolute favourite, knock-your-socks-off, all-inclusive driving tours in the Alps that you might like to consider. As for a dream convertible sports car or luxury SUV, look no further than our fleet and take your pick.
2-Day Sports Car Tour in the Alps
We have put together an amazing driving experience for those who want to enjoy stunning Alpine scenery with all the challenges that twisting mountain roads have to offer.
Fly into Munich where your Porsche Sports Car will be waiting for you. Imagine putting a turbo-charged Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet through its paces, working the paddle shifters while climbing vertiginous ascents. If you want to feel the wind in your hair, you can’t beat the neat and nippy Porsche 718 Boxster convertible, or you may prefer a luxury SUV such as the head-turning (and super-fast) Porsche Macan GTS. Navigating steep-sided passes and taking each twist and turn in the road with precision, this tour is sure to appeal to any passionate driver. Whichever car you choose, with this group tour you can try different models as other drivers are always keen to swap cars during the trip.
Get the Most of your Chosen Wheels
However, this group tour goes further than just handing you the keys and wishing you a pleasant trip. You will meet other similar-minded motorists in the professional drivers’ briefing which will take you through every detail of your chosen sports car. It’s a unique opportunity to get the most from your chosen wheels without having to read the handbook or learn the hard way. As you start the ignition and rev the engine, your heart will thump with anticipation at the 600km driving adventure ahead.
Driving in convoy behind your team leader/guide, you will cross the Austrian and Italian borders as you head towards Merano along some of the most amazing roads in Europe. Share the journey and the thrills with your peers via walkie-talkies. Regular stops allow drivers and co-drivers to swap seats so everyone enjoys both the powerful drive and the dramatic snow-capped mountain scenery. There’s a stop for lunch before reaching your four star hotel in the afternoon where a relaxing spa and friendly conversation over a fine dinner await.
Next day after breakfast, hit the road through South Tyrol as you head to Garmisch-Partenkirchen for lunch. Your powerful sports car will allow you to enjoy the thrill of the open road on German highways that have no speed limit but insist on safe driving distances. Back in Munich, reluctantly hand back the keys and make plans to do a longer sports car tour with us next time!

3-Day Porsche Driving Tour in Southern Bavaria
Our personalised three-day Alpine Foreland Tour has all the thrills of the two-day Sports Car Tour in the Alps with two nights in the prestigious Relais & Chateaux Egerner Höfe. This exclusive resort with its renowned Bavarian cuisine and indulgent spa provides the perfect base for thrilling independent road trips. Two complementary body massages are included, along with a personal concierge service.
The tour includes a choice of suggested routes for you to enjoy at your own pace. Run through the full range of automatic gears in your Porsche 718 Cayman rental as you navigate the serpentine route up the Sudelfeld to the cascading Tatzlwurm waterfalls. Return via Lake Spitzingsee, enjoying every kilometre of the challenging route along the German-Austrian border.
As you head back to Munich at the end of the trip, there’s still time to drink in the splendour of the Tegernsee Valley after putting your sports car engine through its paces on Wallberg Mountain. This is Alpine driving at its very best!
Tailor-made Sports Car Tours from Munich
Why limit your road trip to three days when you could have even longer? We have full sports car driving tours that can be personalised to suit your requirements including luxury hotel accommodation in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy. Where better to hit the open road and escape, at least temporarily?
