If you only have a short time to ride, but want to pack in the absolute best stops in the American Southwest, look no further than the EagleRider Southwest Explorer Motorcycle Tour. You will be the envy of your friends and family as you pack a lifetime worth of memories in to eight incredible riding days.


Day 1 Las Vegas, NV – Arrival (0 mi/0 km)

Viva Las Vegas! Let us know if you’d like to do some sightseeing in ‘Sin City’, and we will be happy to arrange a few extra days at our tour hotel for you. Tonight you’ll have a chance to meet your fellow riders and guide team at a detailed Orientation Meeting, followed by a great meal and some cold drinks at the tour’s Welcome Dinner. Be sure to get some rest tonight – the ride of your life is about to begin!

Day 2 Las Vegas, NV – Kingman, AZ (155 mi/248 km)

Grab your Harley motorcycle from EagleRider Las Vegas and let’s hit the road! We’ll see great views of Hoover Dam on our way to lunch in the historic, old west mining town of Oatman, Arizona where wild donkeys still roam the streets. Oatman marks the beginning of our journey along Historic Route 66, which we’ll enjoy over the next few days. Tonight we’ll have some fun and kick back in the Route 66 town of Kingman where cold beers and giant steaks are calling.

Day 3 Kingman, AZ – Grand Canyon National Park, AZ (185 mi/296 km)

Get your kicks on Route 66! The perfect motorcycle riding day lies ahead, along the longest and best-preserved stretch of the original ‘Mother Road’ that still exists. As we cruise through towns like Hackberry, Peach Springs and Seligman, you might feel a sense of going back in time: with the vast, open landscapes surrounding you, and long freight trains rolling by, it will be easy to imagine what auto travel on America’s Main Street was like in generations past. If you have ever dreamed of witnessing the sunset over the rim of the Grand Canyon, your dream is about to come true. The view of this astounding sight will leave you speechless and awestruck!

Day 4 Grand Canyon, AZ – Monument Valley, AZ (160 mi/256 km)

Start your day with a journey along the South Rim of the Grand Canyon before setting your sights on another iconic Southwest destination: Monument Valley. We’ll continue riding across the majestic Arizona landscape, and end the day with a tour of this Natural Wonder of the World. If conditions and weather allow, we may even be able to arrange dinner and some evening entertainment, with a live performance of traditional music and dance by our friends from the Navajo Nation. It doesn’t get any more authentic than this!

Day 5 Monument Valley, AZ – Canyonlands National Park & Moab, UT (170 mi/272 km)

It’s starting to feel a bit like a dream now, as each day seems to be better than the next. Our tour of famous US National Parks continues, adding our third and fourth parks in the same place. Words often fall short of describing such wondrous cliffs, mesas, and buttes – you must see it to believe it! We will spend two nights in Moab, amidst the red rocks, black night skies, and brilliant white stars. This truly is the beating heart of Utah canyon country. Slow yourself down, relax, and feel the pulse of the Great American Southwest.

Day 6 Moab, UT – Exploration Day (0 mi/0 km)

Moab is home to several kinds of outdoor activities: hike the trails in either Arches or Canyonlands National Parks, rent a mountain bike (or a dirt bike or quad!) and tear through the wilderness, take a Hummer tour across the slick sandstone rocks, go kayaking on the Colorado River – or just hang around the pool for the day. Tonight is a time to recharge your batteries and get ready for the fantastic, final leg our motorcycle tour!

Day 7 Moab, UT – Bryce Canyon National Park, UT (270 mi/432 km)

We are going to get an early start today, as we have plenty of miles, as well as gorgeous scenery, to cover today. First up is Capitol Reef National Park; followed by the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, both in central Utah, on some of the prettiest backroads in the USA. Our stop for the night is Bryce Canyon National Park, which has the most bizarre rock formations (called hoodoos) you will see on the tour. This day will go down as one of the great motorcycle riding days of your lifetime!

Day 8 Bryce Canyon, UT – Las Vegas, NV (240 mi/384 km)

On our final morning together, feel free to join us to witness a stunning sunrise over Bryce Canyon or relax with a cup of coffee in the lodge before we start our journey back to Las Vegas. Our main highlight today is the spectacular landscape of Zion, one of the crown jewels of America’s National Park system. Vibrant red and white rock walls and cliffs stretch thousands of feet toward the sun overhead, as we cruise through the river valleys of this astonishing place. After a final ride through the desert of southern Nevada, we’ll return our beloved bikes and head to the hotel to get cleaned up before our crazy dinner and celebration tonight. This has been an unforgettable ride together, and tonight we’ll share stories, experiences, and new friendships that will last a lifetime.

Day 9 Las Vegas, NV – Departure (0 mi/0 km)

Depart any time or let us know if you need an extra night or two. All that is left now is to decide where we are riding together next year! Safe travels home, see you next time!
