Tour Itinerary

Welcome to Los Angeles. On the eve of this incredible journey you will meet up with your fellow riders for an orientation meeting at the hotel as we prepare to ride through some of the greatest and undisturbed desert roads left in North America. Your tour guide will provide you a thorough overview of what to expect in the coming days and answer any last minute questions you may have. I’m sure there may also be cold drink or two to be shared.
After our welcome breakfast we pick up our motorcycles from EagleRider. Shortly after we are on the road cruising south along the California coastline to the border at Tijuana, Mexico. About an hour after we have entered Mexico we will reach our final destination for today, the bustling port town of Ensenada. Tonight we will enjoy a delicious gourmet dinner made fresh from the local catch. Watch the sunset over Ensenada Bay and it won’t take you long to realize you are on the cusp of something special.
We head south on Mexico Highway 1 leaving the busy border towns behind as we ride south. We dive deeper into Baja where Cirio trees and giant Cardon cacti begin to appear alongside the road. We enter the Vizcaino Desert, one of the most fascinating desert regions on this continent, and experience expansive views of boulder formations, rugged hills and dense desert vegetation. We arrive in Catavina just in time to watch the desert sunset behind huge boulders and Cardon cacti. We have a long ride tomorrow so be sure to get a good night’s rest.
Today we cross the state line from Baja Norte into Baja Sur. You will notice a change in landscape as we ride over several 3,000 foot summits, past flat topped volcanic cones and cactus covered hills into the charming pueblo San Ignacio, an authentic desert oasis located at the bottom of a wide arroyo with date palms and a natural spring fed pond where we overnight.
Ahead of us this morning is the massive ‘Volcan Las Tres Virgenes’ which tells us the origin of recent lava flows around us. We descend Devils Grade, seven miles of switchbacks that take us down to the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez. Winding along the shores beautiful Bahia Conception, one further scenic delight of Baja California, with deep-blue waters, volcanic islands and isolated beaches. In the afternoon we reach Loreto which is the oldest Spanish settlement along the West Coast. The town offers a picturesque central plaza, shopping and a selection of excellent restaurants.
Today we ride along the base of the Sierra de la Giganta Mountains and then rapidly climb up to the summit past hat-shaped mountain peaks crossing the peninsula back to the Pacific Coast. We reach the Santa Domingo Valley and move back across the peninsula until we reach the small fishing village of Los Barriles on the Sea of Cortez. Take a walk on the white sand beach and see for yourself that this is one of the prettiest towns in Mexico.
Enjoy a well deserved rest day in the picturesque seaside fishing village of Los Barriles. Watch the sun come up over the calm blue waters of Sea of Cortez or take this opportunity to sleep in. There are many daytime activities available in Los Barriles. Go sport fishing, rent an ATV and ride miles of beaches, go stand up paddle boarding or kayaking, get pampered in the Spa, or simply relax at the beautiful beachfront hotel pool.
Under the shadow of Cerro del Venado we roll into San Jose del Cabo and down the coast of Bahia San Lucas which was a favorite hiding place for pirates who laid in wait for Spanish treasure ships in the 16th and 17th century. Today our destination is the popular resort town of Cabo San Lucas and we are here to enjoy it all. Just before arriving in Cabo we get a view of ‘Land’s End,' the southernmost tip of the Baja peninsula! Tonight it is time to say good-bye to your newly-made friends and the amazing land through which you have just traveled.
We hope you enjoyed your tour of Baja Mexico! Whenever you are ready for your next grand motorcycle adventure please let us know – we will be happy to ride with you again! Hasta Luego, amigos – EagleRider Motorcycle Tours

Baja South Tour - 20/11/16

I asked Stefano Trampetti who I could email to say how happy I was with the Tour and Stefano as our guide in particular - he gave me your email address .

Stefano made a tremendous effort right from the start to answer all our questions and make us feel comfortable for the ride ahead .

This was a fantastic experience and I will be talking about it with my biker buddies recommending EagleRider as a tour operator and explaining to them how smoothly everything went - and to ask for Stefano if possible to make it even better !

Stefano and EagleRider were simply first class and 5* all the way !

In those immortal words ' I'll be back ! '

Thank you and Well Done !

Taking the Eagle Rider Baja Guided Tour Southbound turned out to be about both the destination and the journey. One never really knows what to expect when arranging travel tours online, but this tour exceeded expectations in all ways. First, the personnel at Eagle Rider LA where fantastic. Their attention to contract details and assuring that my arrangements were as specified mean that my start was hassle free. The first night meeting with our guide Jeff Homer was warm and friendly. Jeff and his crew are tourism professionals and know how to make everyone feel accepted. Meeting the other riders over cocktails provided a great opportunity to make introductions. As we headed out the first day, and everyday thereafter Jeff briefed the group on the details of the day’s ride. This included the mileage to each rest stop, gas stops, and lunch stops. We always knew what kinds of roads we would experience, where we would be eating lunch. As a Baja resident Jeff seems to know every local eating spot along highway 1 and everyone one we experienced seemed to be better than the next. His fluency in Spanish made his interface with the locals easy and comfortable for all of us. Who knew that fish tacos from a food truck could taste so good? Our farewell dinner as a group The fourteen hundred mile journey was a balanced mixture of mountain twistys, open flat desert plains, and local villages. Jeff was always conscience of the group’s safety and was able to provide a challenging lead pace, while making sure that we all arrived at destination with a story to tell about the day’s experience. The ride each day was of comfortable length, but sufficient enough to create a longing for a beer with the group at rides end and a comfortable hotel for the night. Our hotel experience never disappointed. Each night’s accommodation had its own unique flavor reflective of the location. We truly had a mission oasis in central Baja, and a seaside resort on the Sea of Cortez.
