This tour from day to day
WEEK 1 ---ARRIVAL IN ANCHORAGE AK - USA


On the first day you will arrive in Anchorage Alaska - USA. The tour guide will inform the whole group about the upcoming tour. He will also take care of all the necessary formalities. The drive from Anchorage to Wasilla is easy. We try to ride the gravelled Hatchers Pass Road, a great start to our tour in Alaska. Lunch in the beautiful town of Talkeetna. In the afternoon we experience our first Alaskan feeling,the Parks Highway with a drive close to the highest peak in North America, Denali (formerly Mt. McKinley). From here we head east and do some great driving on the Denali and Top of the World Highway. After a night in the cowboy village of Dawson City, we drive most of the way south. A visit to Skagway is not to be missed. This week is also the best opportunity to see the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights).

WEEK 2 ---CANADA


Time to see spectacular wildlife, glaciers and winding roads. From Canada, into the USA and back to Canada. The border crossings are very easy and do not cost us much time. From Watson Lake we drive back towards the Pacific and visit Steward Glacier, grizzlies, and much more. All with great scenery. From here we drive inland, climbing up towards Prince George. Even though we are heading south, the temperatures here are colder early in the morning and at night. We cross the Rocky Mountains and drive to Banff National Park. From Jasper NP we take the "Icefields Parkway", a 250 km road that is widely regarded as one of the most impressive road trips in the world. Arriving in Lake Louise, after 2 weeks on the bike, it is time to relax, enjoy a rest day and/or do some sightseeing.

WEEK 3 ---WYOMING & IDAHO

We enter the USA via small (gravel) roads and say goodbye to Canada. The first stop is a drive on the scenic 'Going to the Sun road'. The surrounding area is full of snow-capped mountains. From here we drive to a small village called Elk City and take a deserted road to the village of Salmon, the Magruder Corridor. We end this week near Teton National Park. Another highlight, as here is a great chance to see the American buffalo.

WEEK 4 & 5--- LAS VEGAS AND A SERIES OF FAMOUS NATIONAL PARKS

We arrive in dry and hot weather and visit the famous national parks such as: Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon, Zion, Death Valley, Yosemite and Sequoia. The drives in the last 2 weeks are absolutely gorgeous, with most of our driving through the parks. In between the 2 weeks, we treat ourselves to a well-deserved rest day in Las Vegas. (Or rest day, there is so much to do and see in Las Vegas that you might need another holiday). Just before we drop off the rental bikes in Los Angeles, we show you the last curvy roads downhill. Finally, with almost 10,000 km on the speedometer, it's off to the beach in sunny California.

Local circumstances could require adjustment of the route on site.

In Canada and the USA we visit a lot of national parks. There is simply too much to mention. And not to forget: the driving is simply fantastic and adventurous. We guarantee a 'once-in-a-lifetime' experience! Please note: On about 15% of the route of this tour (= 1,500 kilometres / 930 miles) we will be driving on well-maintained dirt roads.
