WONDERS OF THE WEST
This all paved Wonders of the West motorcycle tour features six days of exploring iconic destinations in southern California, western Nevada and parts of Arizona. Ride through Death Valley, visit Las Vegas, and gaze down over the rim of the Grand Canyon all in less than a week! Open spaces, old west history, Route 66, and the opportunity to ride below sea level are just some of the highlights on this itinerary. Discover The West at a time when temperatures are just about perfect for riding during the spring and autumn in Southern California and Nevada.
- This trip pairs fantastically with our American Southwest Adventure in October. Take both tours back to back!
