Itinerary

Day 01: Arrival – Los Angeles, California

Welcome to Los Angeles!

After arriving at the Los Angeles airport and picking up your luggage (Baggage claim), please exit the arrival hall to the traffic island (outside) with the “red” sign with the writing “Hotel and Courtesy Shuttle”. The hotel offers a free shuttle bus service every 30 minutes. At the hotel reception, you will be met by one of our friendly tour guides.

When all tour participants have arrived, we will meet for a welcome greeting and refreshment, with introductions. The evening’s program will be getting to know each other and eating dinner together in true American style. Those not tired after the long journey may visit a local bar nearby.

Day 02: Los Angeles to San Diego (Riding day 1: 212 km/132 miles)

We will begin our Wild West tour! When everyone is ready on the bikes, we will embark on our 4,400 km long journey. LA will disappear behind us as we head south for a unique adventure full of history, excitement, and fun! This first Riding day will bring some city, some highway, and a wonderful Ride along the legendary Pacific Coast Highway 1 towards fun San Diego. We will slowly start tuning everyone into the California riding conditions and temperatures. In approximately 30 min, our first stop will be Long Beach, where we will make an extra security check of the bikes, equipment, and Riders before our tour begins for real.

Get ready for a tasty lunch at Ruby’s Diner in Laguna Beach. Milkshakes the old-fashioned way = highly recommended! After that, we will head straight to San Diego, where we will Ride to Historic Old Town, check into the hotel, and spend the rest of the day on everything this fun city offers: the USS Midway, Maritime Museum, Little Italy, Old Town.

Day 03: San Diego to Blythe (Riding day 2: 362 km/225 miles)

We will leave beautiful and fun San Diego to spend the day Riding on fantastic motorcycle roads: Historic Route 94 and 98, plus Old Hwy 80. The roads will be curvy and pass through spectacular scenery. Enjoy + have your camera ready!

Most of the day, we will Ride along the Mexico border, which is well-guarded by the U.S. Border Patrol. We will eat a Mexican lunch at a popular local diner in Calexico.

After our stop in Calexico, we will continue northeast through the Imperial Sand Dunes, an extraordinary experience. It’s like Riding through a sandy desert with dunes on each side of the road. We guarantee a very rare experience. We will stop in the middle of the “desert” before continuing to Blythe. In the evening, we will go to a local steakhouse and eat an authentic American steak.

Day 04: Blythe to Sedona (Riding day 3: 386 km/240 miles)

We will start the day with a transport leg through the dry prairie landscape before riding the spectacular motorcycle roads to Prescott. Hwy 89 is one of Arizona’s best motorcycle roads, and some parts are somewhat challenging but very enjoyable! We cannot highly praise this riding experience.

After a nice lunch in Prescott, we will continue Riding on fun & curvy motorcycle roads to Jerome ghost town. After that, we will Ride to the breathtaking natural preserve Oak Creek Canyon, where you will be surrounded by spectacular scenery and rock formations. This natural paradise might look familiar since many famous cowboy movies have been recorded here. Oak Creek Canyon is Arizona’s second most popular tourist attraction after the Grand Canyon. Our last stop will be Sedona, in the heart of Oak Creek Canyon, a unique Indian city with dramatic natural surroundings from another world. Sedona is known for its spiritual energy and a thriving cultural community.

Day 05: Sedona to Tuba City (Riding day 4: 306 km/190 miles)

This will be the tour highlight for many. Welcome to the Grand Canyon! We will start the day by Riding fun & curvy motorcycle roads on our way out of Oak Creek Canyon, passing Flagstaff, touching by Historic Route 66, before continuing through beautiful scenery. The helicopter base is just before the “entrance” to the Grand Canyon. Those who pre-ordered the helicopter tour will get an experience they will never forget. Hovering in the air over one of the world’s seven wonders and experiencing this natural wonder up close is almost magical. It is highly recommended! NB: Helicopter rides must be booked separately in advance.

After the helicopter tour, we will ride a short leg to the visitor centre to see the world’s most-watched Imax movie. When you see the film, it feels almost like standing inside the Grand Canyon. We will also eat lunch here. After that, we will Ride into the Grand Canyon and spend the rest of the day here. Be ready for this year’s vacation photoshoot. Afterwards, we will set course towards another famous natural phenomenon, Monument Valley, but make an overnight stop in Tuba City.

Day 06: Tuba City to Hanksville (Riding day 5: 399 km/248 miles)

We will start the day by Riding to Monument Valley, one of the world’s most photographed natural phenomena. Monument Valley cannot be described in words; it must be experienced. Up close, we will share the classic Wild West landscape of sandstone rock formations. Everything has a reddish shade and is beautiful to look at. Only when you are in Monument Valley will you understand how much this area has influenced your perspective on the Wild West. These natural surroundings are also in other places, but not as perfect as exhibited here. When we ride amongst these majestic rock formations, we are in the middle of the Navajo Indians’ area, so you must get the spiritual mood up.

We will continue to Mexican Hat, another natural phenomenon. Is it a sombrero or stone formation? Then, we will head north to Lake Powell and Utah’s national parks. This will be a Riding distance you will never forget. We will be surrounded by amazing rock formations and have a three-dimensional height perspective. We will ride through spectacular scenery on fun motorcycle roads all day. Today’s Riding will be one of the tour’s absolute highlights! We will Ride through Goosenecks State Park, Natural Bridges National Monument, Glen Canyon, Lake Powell, Goblin Valley, and Horseshoe Canyon.

Day 07: Hanksville to Hurricane (Riding day 6: 428 km/266 miles)

We will continue our amazing and spectacular Ride through Utah. The national parks will come one after another like beads on a string: Goblin Canyon, Capitol Reef, and Otter Creek State Park. Best of all will be our ride up and down the elevations of the Escalante staircase. We believe you will not be able to stop smiling! One of the tour highlights will be the magic of Bryce Canyon. Bryce Canyon’s rock formations will be difficult to describe, an experience on par with the Grand Canyon.

We will continue through Dixie National Forest to another great National Park, Zion. Besides seeing some of the world’s finest rock formations, the roads will be particularly curvy here – “the switchbacks of Zion”! Compared to Yosemite and Grand Canyon, Zion will radiate a more aesthetic appreciation of nature.

Day 08: Hurricane to Las Vegas (Riding day 7: 274 km/172 miles)

Get ready for another fantastic day! We will start by Riding through spectacular Zion. Besides seeing some of the world’s finest rock formations, the roads will be particularly curvy here – “the switchbacks of Zion”! Compared to Yosemite and Grand Canyon, Zion will radiate a more aesthetic appreciation of nature.

When we come out of Zion, it’s straight ahead to the neon-lit gambling oasis of Las Vegas. We will arrive at lunchtime, park the bikes, and spend the rest of the day exploring this exciting city. This evening, you can explore the famous “Sin City” alone. Enjoy! You will be in one of the most fun cities in the world.

Las Vegas will have amazing architecture, unique shows, casinos, and all kinds of entertainment. Vegas will never be boring! Most attractions will be within walking distance. We highly recommend a trip to Caesar’s Palace, Bellagio, MGM, Stardust, Treasure Island, The Venetian, Mirage, Wyatt, and The Fashion Show Mall (over 200 stores). At the Mirage, you can enjoy the evening volcanic eruptions every 30 minutes, turning the garden into a flame show. Inside the casino are rare white tigers. The water show outside the Bellagio is also a memory for life.

Day 09: Las Vegas to Lone Pine (Riding day 8: 401 km/249 miles)

We will head west out of Las Vegas, where the road will take us to Death Valley – the hottest place on the planet outside the Equator! There will be almost no shade anywhere, and the heat will be extreme – yet nature will be fantastic & exciting. We will eat an early lunch in the middle of Death Valley. Afterwards, we will Ride through a series of turns and mountains and find ourselves located more than 30 meters below sea level. We will continue west and ride Sequoia National Park to Lone Pine, where we will stay overnight.

Day 10: Lone Pine to Jamestown (Riding day 9: 386 km/240 miles)

We will start the day by Riding to Bishop, where we will enjoy a coffee and some delicious pastries at the local bakery. After that, we will Ride to Mammoth Lakes, known for mountain biking in summer and skiing in winter. We will continue north to Tioga Pass before we cross Yosemite National Park. We will ride through enormous granite mountains and curvy motorcycle roads. This will require some concentration until we approach the mother of the mother of all national parks. Yosemite will draw thousands of images and rise to dizzying heights. You will experience the beautiful, wild, tame, and abundant nature that spreads around you. We will enjoy an outdoor lunch in the open wild Yosemite scenery.

We will end the day by riding to a fun old mining village, Jamestown. On our way to Jamestown, we will ride on twisty & challenging motorcycle roads. We are confident you will have a big smile on your face. But please Ride very cautiously!

Day 11: Jamestown to San Francisco (Riding day 10: 356 km/221 miles)

When we Ride out of Yosemite National Park, we will ride on great motorcycle roads. We are confident you will have a big smile on your face. When we are out of Yosemite, we will continue west to Sausalito and Golden Gate Bridge, where we will take the time to enjoy the view of the bridge and beautiful San Francisco. Afterwards, we will ride across this famous bridge and into San Francisco, where we will stay near the Embarcadero and all its attractions.

Day 12: San Francisco (Fun and Explorer Day)

When you wake up in funny San Francisco, you might understand why Frank Sinatra left his heart in this city. The city will be a funky, individualistic, and surprisingly small place – indeed, the most liberal city in the US.

San Francisco will have a European feel, and you will have many more opportunities for sightseeing than it is possible to adapt to our short stay here. Make sure you visit Fisherman’s Wharf while dropping by small shops and street cafes famous for some of the best seafood dishes in the world. Feel free to hop on one of the city’s famous “Cable Cars, ” a moving landmark and the heart of this amazing city! Other good options are the prison island Alcatraz (must be booked in advance), harbour cruises, Chinatown, and Lombard Street (one of America’s curviest streets). Those who wish can take a road trip to Napa Valley and taste wines.

Day 13: San Francisco to Monterey (Riding day 11: 192 km/120 miles)

Get ready for some fantastic Riding experiences – this day will be one of the tour’s definite highlights! We will Ride on the legendary Pacific Highway 1 by the spectacular coastline and experience our first taste of one of the most amazing motorcycle roads in the world. There are stunning views of caves and rock formations and many opportunities to take great pictures. We will also stop by the famous biker bar “Alice’s” and ride through Big Basin Redwood State Park, which is packed with curvy & narrow motorcycle roads and the famous wide Redwood trees. We will make several stops along Pacific Highway 1 and the Redwood forest before we head to Monterey.

Monterey will be home to the world-famous Laguna Seca Automobile (known as the motorcycle racetrack). When we arrive at this spectacular seaside city, we will spend the afternoon along Cannery Row, packed with beautiful hotels, shops, and restaurants. We will eat dinner at the famous Fisherman’s Wharf.

Day 14: Monterey – Solvang (Riding day 12: 339 km/210 miles)

We’ll say it again: it will be hard to believe that nature can be more beautiful, but today’s ride will take your breath away. We will Ride the highly appraised Pacific Highway 1 with mountains on our left side and the Pacific Ocean on our right side. As we continue past the Big Sur, you will feel the warm California sun and delicious salty sea air on your skin. There will be several miles with fantastic views and incredible formations where the Santa Lucia Mountains meet the Pacific Ocean, creating one of the most beautiful stretches of the California coast. Today, you will enjoy a delicious warm breeze and a spectacular sunset.

We will Ride through the beach resort Pismo Beach to the “Danish” city, Solvang (sister town of Aarhus), where we will live in a Danish Gjæstgiveri, eat at a Danish Brewery restaurant, and eat breakfast at a Danish bakery. We can even go behind the scenes to greet the Danish baker.

Day 15: Solvang – Los Angeles (Riding day 13: 238 km/148 miles)

We say goodbye to Solvang and continue our wonderful trip to southern California, home of the Beach Boys, Hollywood, and some of the most beautiful scenery in the country. We will stop for lunch in Santa Barbara, referred to by many as America’s Riviera because of its climate and geography, similar to the French and Italian Riviera.

Having digested Santa Barbara, we will cruise down Pacific Coast Highway 1 to the famous Neptune’s Net biker restaurant & Malibu. After that, we will head straight to Los Angeles. We will return the bikes, remove our boots, and replace Riding gear with light summer clothing. We will spend the afternoon in the vicinity of the hotel. We will also have a farewell dinner together and prepare for the journey home.
