16-day
motorbike tour
Every few hours the landscape changes. From the
sea and Mexican beach huts, through sand dunes
with gigantic cacti, to big masses of red rock among
a web of narrow lanes. Besides taking you through
famous national parks, this motorbike tour will lead
you to fairytale Las Vegas and typical Western towns
where time seems to have come to a standstill.
A first-class recommendation!                                       The 'small' root of a Sequoia Tree

there.

Today's advice is to 'ride slowly' so you do not miss any of the natural
beauty of the Colorado River, Marble Canyon, and the stunning Zion
National Park. The ride will further take us to Hurricane, where we will
enjoy a festive barbeque prepared by the group.
