The Great American Southwest Tour explores the very best of the American southwest, starting in Las Vegas and riding the canyon lands of Utah, Colorado, Arizona and Nevada.
The tour visits the bucket-list USA areas of Zion National Park, Bryce National Park, Arches National Park, Hovenweep National Monument, Mesa Verde National Park, the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, and Route 66.
This is not only an extraordinary tour of motorcycling bragging rights and life-changing experience and scenery, but all areas visited are laden with natural history alongside a glimpse into the old and wild west intertwined with modern-day American culture.
The riding through this part of the continental United States is world class, and the tour can be amended each day as the group feels in respect to taking both paved and unpaved dirt and gravel routes, and so participants should be open and experienced to riding on both.
