Staying in tents is not your cup of tea? Then the Hub Riding concept may be just up your alley.
While tents and free roaming for many is an integrated part of motorcycle travel, quite a few of us are getting accustomed to a higher level of comfort. Yes – we are talking hotels. But in this case, rather special hotels. Not your average by-the-road motel or chain hotel. No, here we are talking of really special hotels at really special places.
“De Historiske” – The Historic Hotels – is a group of special, old and magnificently situated hotels in Norway. The group has created a new concept – Hub Riding – where they suggest a route for you as a motorcycle rider, and – lo and behold – the routes even interlinks the hotels in The Historic group. Of course it is a marketing and sales thingy. However, you are of course not obilged to stay at their hotels to enjoy the routes. If you choose to do so, The Historic Hotels are truly situated at wonderful spots, and each of them carries quite a history. We have stayed at several of them (typically after payday) and enjoyed the sites, the food and the differentness of these special places. Fun fact: The Hub routes are named after motorcycles, e.g. Route KTM, Route Ducati etc.
