Program

Day 1 - Saturday, June 22: Skyline Drive to Blue Ridge Parkway

The group will travel today on the Skyline Drive heading to the Blue Ridge Parkway. You will head for the Peaks of Otter Lodge where you will spend the night. Warning, the hotel has no radio, TV, or telephone but is extremely relaxing. You will arrive early enough for you to check in and still get a couple more hours of riding on your own. Dinner is on Great Eastern tonight.

Day 2 - Sunday, June 23: Peaks of Otter Lodge to Little Switzerland Inn

After a hearty breakfast, you will ride approximately 250 miles to the next destination, the Little Switzerland Inn. This is an outstanding location with great views. Ride the “Diamond Back” right from the hotel, or take a dip in the pool overlooking the valley below. Tonight, dinner is on Great Eastern.

Day 3 - Monday, June 24: Little Switzerland Inn to Gatlinburg, Tennessee

Good morning! Today, you will continue along the Blue Ridge Parkway for approximately another 100 miles before making your way to the Smoky Mountain National Park. There, you will ride through the park and make your way to Gatlinburg, where you will spend the next three nights. You're on your own tonight for dinner.

Day 4 - Tuesday, June 25: Tail of the dragon

Enjoy a Great Eastern breakfast this morning because today is the day you ride the tail (there are 318 turns in 11 miles and it is rated one of the top 10 roads in the country). You will make your way to Deals Gap (make sure you check out the “Tree of Shame”), and then turn you lose to ride the tail on your own. You will form up at the Harley Dealer and after ample time to shop, you will make your way back to your hotel. You’re on your own tonight for dinner.

Day 5 - Wednesday, June 26: Cherohala Skyway

Good morning everyone! Today, you are free to explore the area on your own or join Great Eastern Motorcycle Tours for a cruise to the Cherohala Highway. This 43 miles road is similar to the Blue Ridge Parkway with its many turns and outstanding vista views. You’re on your own tonight for dinner.

Day 6 - Thursday, June 27: Gatlinburg to Little Switzerland Inn

After a healthy breakfast, it is off to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Northbound. Traveling back through the Smoky Mountain National Park in reverse makes this ride a whole new road. Tonight, back at the Little Switzerland Inn, you will enjoy a Great Eastern sponsored dinner.

Day 7 - Friday, June 28: Little Switzerland Inn to Peaks of Otter Lodge

Today’s ride takes you to the north along the Blue Ridge Parkway, back to the Peaks of Otter Lodge. You will stop at Doughton Park for lunch (don’t forget to check out the gift shop). With lunch behind you, you will continue riding the Blue Ridge back to the Peaks of Otter Lodge for your last night together. Let’s meet tonight for a Great Eastern sponsored dinner and talk about your memories of this past week together.

Day 8 - Saturday, June 29: Peaks of Otter Lodge to Front Royal, Virginia

After “yet another” Great Eastern Motorcycle Tours’s breakfast, you will ride the last several miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway, which will take you onto the Skyline Drive.
