During your journey, you will stay in good quality hotels, which will be reserved before departure. The room will be in a standard twin / double room accommodation. You can opt for a private room for an additional single supplement. All rooms will include en-suite bathroom with shower or bath facilities, television, and air conditioning. Most hotels will also have a pool.
Upon arrival in Seattle, you will be taken to your comfortable airport hotel. You will have time to freshen up before the team leader gives a short talk on the practicalities of the trip and you have the opportunity to sip on a drink or two.
In the morning, the motorbikes will already be eagerly waiting at the hotel for you, itching to get on the exceedingly bendy roads in Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. In this mountainous region, you will find two 'sleeping' volcanoes; Mount Baker and Glacier Peak. The incomparable vistas will immediately give you that holiday feeling.
From Washington state, you will ride over Mount Spokane into Idaho. The mountain, with a peak of almost 6,000 feet, is one of the highest in this area, and its name stems from the Indian tribe, The Spokane, which means 'Children of the Sun'.
Your journey continues along the stunning - and in some places, 1100-feet deep - Lake Pend Oreille. This lake is filled to the brim with fish, especially rainbow trout. The area around the lake is also crawling with wildlife. You might get a glance of deer or moose, but there are also wolves, black and grizzly bears, and a vast variety of birds. Highway 200 and Highway 93 will take you to Hamilton.
Today will bring you more natural beauty; you will ride on to Bitterroot National Forest, which consists of woods and grasslands. You may spot a lot of wildlife here too; mountain goats, moose, and bears. Along the way, you will stop in the western town of Virginia City where Bonanza was filmed, ending your day just outside the entrance to Yellowstone National Park so you can head straight into it in the morning.
Yellowstone was first to be named a national park in America. It has a very diverse landscape of woods, pastures, geysers, springs, and waterfalls. You will find bison, all kinds of deer, grizzly bears, and brown bears. Be sure to bring plenty of empty memory cards and full batteries for your camera or camcorder, because today will definitely bring you some unforgettable moments.
You will carry on through the state of Idaho in all its unspoiled beauty. Tonight's accommodation lies in Twin Falls, but before you arrive there, you will get the chance to explore more spectacular waterfalls.
The endless plains of Nevada will exercise all your senses. Listening to music on your iPod or just enjoying the quiet, you will continue along Highway 50, also called 'the loneliest road in America'. Your destination for today will be Austin, Nevada. It is located in a stunning area at the foot of the Toiyabe Range.
Today, you will ride through ever-changing landscapes, desert as well as fresh forests. Finally, there will be more time to relax as you stay in South Lake Tahoe, bordering Nevada and California. As the name suggests, it lies at the southern edge of the dazzling Lake Tahoe.
Once more, you will explore a protected nature reserve, Eldorado National Forest which is situated amid mountainous terrain with a web of fish-filled rivers. Through the wine region of Napa Valley, you will ride on to San Francisco, arriving in the afternoon. Recommended tourist attractions are cable car rides, Fisherman's Wharf, China Town, or the notoriously famous Alcatraz.
Along the breathtaking Highway 1, you will leave the city behind you. Today will take you through Santa Cruz, Monterey, and Big Sur, among others. Before reaching Cambria, you will take a pit stop in San Simeon to watch elephant seals on the beach. They share their habitat with other wildlife, such as the funny sea otters.
Today, there will be another stunning ride along Highway 1. On the left side, you will see beautiful hills and mountains, and on the right side, a sheer cliff drops subjected to the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean. Your destination is the Spanish-Mediterranean Santa Barbara.
Your motorbiking skills will be tested today as you ride through Los Padres National Forest. They are fantastic bendy roads! You will stop for a rest in Ojai and continue on towards Los Angeles. After an emotional farewell with your motorbikes, you will have the opportunity to see Rodeo Drive, Sunset Boulevard, and Hollywood. Your team leader will gladly give you advice on what to see.
Bringing your trip to a close, you can choose from a variety of day trips. You can visit Universal Studios or Disneyland, shop till you drop in Santa Monica, or enjoy a lazy day at Venice Beach.
Early in the morning, you will be taken to the airport to catch your flight home unless you would like to extend your stay of course! USA on Wheels will gladly advise you on your opportunities and organize any additional wishes. Please email or call USA on Wheels for more information.
