Tonight, you will meet your fellow riders and guides for dinner at a local landmark restaurant.

Day 2 - Winthrop (235 miles)

Today you say goodbye to Seattle and quickly make your way to some of the most beautiful back roads in the State of Washington. Highway 9 is a Northwest treasure that winds through the carnation and tulip fields as you head north towards the Mt. Baker and North Cascades National Parks.

In Waterton you can enjoy a quiet, serene afternoon and evening on the glassy waters of a crystal-clear lake.

Day 7 - Whitefish (146 miles)

What better way to welcome the group back to the United States than with a ride through the amazing vistas of Glacier National Park.

For motorcycle enthusiasts, it is simply an assault on the senses and offers some excellent riding terrain on one of the National Park’s oldest, historical roads – the Going to the Sun Road. Tonight you have the opportunity to explore the town of Whitefish and discover it’s markets, bars and live music.

Day 8 - Anaconda (240 miles)

As you leave Glacier National Park you’ll be heading southeast to explore Montana and find out why it is known as the Big Sky State!

Day 9 - Red Lodge (322 miles)

Today you will continue to explore some of the pioneering history of Montana, stopping in the historical gold-mining towns of Virginia and Nevada cities. If you haven’t felt it before, you will definitely feel as if you’ve stepped back in time to the old West. The ride will continue through the city of Bozeman, eventually turning off onto the small roads that climb towards the mountain town of Red Lodge. Get a good’s night sleep, as tomorrow you will tackle the Beartooth Highway and Chief Joseph passes!

Day 10 - Cody (114 miles)

Get ready to ride what many consider to be two of the top motorcycle rides in North America, Chief Joseph and the Beartooth Pass. There is simply no way to put into words what lies ahead today. You will cruise at a nice easy speed, stopping often to capture awe inspiring photos of the scenery and glimpses of wildlife. When this day is over you will all look at one another with a big grin and wonder out loud if today was all just an amazing dream. Tonight you will be staying in the classic western town of Cody, Wyoming, once home to Buffalo Bill Cody. After dinner you can walk down the street to enjoy some local history or head to the local Cody Rodeo to watch cowboys on bucking broncos and bulls. It’s the Wild West!

Day 11 - Cody

Today is your day to simply kick up your boots and relax in Cody. Incorporated in 1901, Cody is located 52 miles from Yellowstone National Park’s east entrance. Cody was founded by Colonel William F. ‘Buffalo Bill’ Cody who passed through the region in the 1870s. He was so impressed by the development possibilities of irrigation, rich soil, grand scenery, hunting and proximity to Yellowstone National Park, that he returned in the mid-1890s to start a town. Cody has many activities to offer – from white water rafting to experiencing the amazing Buffalo Bill or Cody Firearms museums.

Day 12 - West Yellowstone (178 miles)

Today will be spent winding your way through parts of Yellowstone National Park, stopping to experience the majesty of Yellowstone Falls and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Mammoth Hot Springs, Hayden Valley and all of its extraordinary wildlife. Tonight’s stay will be on the edge of the park in West Yellowstone, so you’ll be primed for more exploration in the morning!

Day 13 - Jackson (128 miles)

This morning you’ll ride through geyser country to have a coffee and watch the greatest geyser of all do its thing – Old Faithful! From here you’ll make your way along Jackson Lake and into Grand Teton National Park for scenic stops and lunch. Home tonight is nestled in one of the most famous and exclusive ski resort areas of the United States, Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Jackson is home to sprawling cattle ranches, celebrity estates and roaming herds of buffalo. Tonight, you have the opportunity to enjoy the vibrant nightlife of Jackson Hole.

Day 14 - Ogden (256 miles)

Your ride starts today with a descent through the twisty Snake River Gorge as you leave Grand Teton National Park. Lunch has been organised along the shore of the impossibly turquoise Bear Lake before you take a ride across the Wasatch Mountains through Logan River Canyon. This evening will be spent exploring the bars and restaurants of Historic 25th Street. With nicknames like Notorious Two-Bit Street and Electric Alley, this street was once home to brothels, political scandals and the ‘dark ages’ of gang rivalries so intense you couldn’t walk the three-block length in safety. Today, 25th Street is a mecca for travellers, art collectors, foodies and adventurers.

Day 15 - Salt Lake City (100 miles)

On your last day of riding you will continue the exploration of the Wasatch Mountains with its lakes, foothills, rocky peaks and famous ski areas such as Park City. A wonderful way to spend your last day on two-wheels together! Tonight, celebrate your adventure at one of SLC’s famous brew pubs where you can enjoy one another’s company one last time at a farewell dinner.

Day 16 - Farewell from Salt Lake City

Today your exciting trip will conclude here in Utah’s capital. You can add an extra night or two here if you wish to spend more time enjoying the sights. Otherwise, it’s off to the airport to catch your scheduled flight home.
