A frank word among bikers: We ride, depending on the tour, between 120 and 540 km per day, in the charming and beautiful scenery. The approximate daily number of kilometers you can take from the respective daily program. This may mean getting out early and arriving late on a few days.

The Southwest of the USA is waiting for you.

Tour itinerary:

Day 01 - Flight to Las Vegas

Flight with a renowned airline from your chosen departure point to Las Vegas (transfer possible). Upon arrival in Las Vegas, you will be met by your guide and transferred to a well-located mid-range hotel. The rest of the evening is at your leisure. Overnight stay in Las Vegas.

Day 02 - Las Vegas

The morning is free for you to explore Las Vegas on your own. After the first meeting in the morning, you can take a ride to the outlet mall or to the Harley-Davidson® dealer, or simply visit the first of the many hotel attractions or take a visit to the observation deck of the 350 m Stratosphere Tower to get an overview of the city. Your guide will be happy to help you with words and deeds. Overnight stay in Las Vegas.

TIP: If you like, you can end the day with a cozy dinner together and then, like the movie stars, be chauffeured on an optional stretch limousine tour along the Strip and into the Old Town of Las Vegas.

Day 03 - Las Vegas

The morning is free for you to explore Las Vegas on your own. Relax by the pool, go shopping and explore the Strip. Your guide will be happy to help you with words and deeds. In the early afternoon, you will pick up your bikes at our local motorcycle rental partner. You take the opportunity to ride a small round to get back to the hotel.

TOUR TIP: A helicopter flight over the Las Vegas Strip at night

Day 04 - Hoover Dam - Eldorado Gold Mine - Laughlin 255 km

Early in the morning you will start your Harley® tour through the Wild West. All the luggage you need for the tour will be loaded into the escort vehicle. If you wish, you can stop at a neutral store for motorcycle clothing in the morning in order to replenish equipment and any missing material. Afterwards you will start in the direction of Arizona. After a short ride you will reach the Hoover Dam with the Lake-Mead-View-Viewpoint and after a short walk you will go to the new Colorado Bridge, from where you have a phenomenal view of the dam. After stocking up on sandwiches for lunch, you'll head down into Eldorado Canyon. There you will find an open air museum (optional) around an old gold mine. This place has been the spot for many famous movies and commercials (e.g. "3000 Miles to Graceland" or "Breakdown" with Kevin Costner and Kurt Russel). In the afternoon you will reach the gambler's paradise Laughlin, the final destination of your today's stage, where you can refresh yourself right away in the hotel pool. Overnight stay in Laughlin.

TIP: Hold on to your wallet at the casino!

Day 05 - Route 66 - Oatman - Williams 310 km

In the morning you will leave Nevada in the direction of Route 66 and the state of Arizona. Along the way you will see several small western towns, like Oatman, which is always a stopover for many Harley® riders. This is also a reminder of the first settlers and miners in the West. The wild burros and also the real cowboys are looking forward to your visit. The Route 66 Museum in Kingman is on your way, as is the historic General Store in Hackberry. You'll cross the Hualapai Native American Reservation and catch your first glimpse of the western rim of the Grand Canyon. In the small town of Seligman you will visit the store of Angel Delgadillo, probably the most famous barber in the world. He is one of the co-founders of the Route 66 Association and is considered the father of today's Route 66. The end point of your stage today is the town of Williams, which still has much of the "Good Old West" left, with its historic houses and the old entertainment district, right on the Motherroad. You will spend the night almost directly on Route 66 and in the evening you will have the opportunity to dine directly on Route 66.

Day 06 - Grand Canyon - Cameron Tradingpost - Navajo Country 300 km

In the morning you start your tour day from Williams to one of the seven wonders of the world. There you will first have the opportunity to take an almost 1-hour helicopter tour of the breathtaking Grand Canyon. Then you will follow the scenic road along the south rim of the Grand Canyon. Interesting stops include Duck Rock, Grand View, Lipan Point and Desert View with its Native American watchtower along the way. Your late lunch stop will be at the old trading post at Cameron, in the middle of the Navajo Reservation. Overnight tonight is at a simple lodge in the Marble Canyon/Page area.

After leaving the town of Kayenta behind you, you will reach Monument Valley. Monument Valley is one of the few parks that is not under the administration of the US government. Since it is located in the middle of the reservation, the Navajo Native Americans have the lucrative say for the tribe. There you will have the opportunity to join the Navajos in their four-wheel drive vehicles for another exclusive tour of the valley. In the late afternoon you will reach Mexican Hat, which is located directly on the San Juan River. As you ride by, you will see the rock formation from which this place gets its name.

Day 09 - Grand Escalante - Bryce Canyon National Park 250 km

This morning we head up a nearly 3,000-foot scenic road toward the Grand Escalante Staircase. After crossing the boar's neck, it's "Take a deep Breath".

In the afternoon the tour goes to Bryce Canyon National Park. This park is famous for its unique red sandstone formations, which glow in golden and red colors, like fire, especially at sunrise and sunset.
