Arizona Motorcycle Tour - Tour Itinerary
Arrive at Phoenix International airport and transfer to your hotel. Overnight.
This morning you will pick up your motorcycle and begin your exciting journey, which will take you through many legendary sites. From Phoenix you pick up Hwy 17 to Sedona – make sure to stop here, Sedona is a divine place! When you arrive you’ll see that the physical beauty combines the mountains of Vermont, the rocks of California and the clay of Georgia back roads. Perhaps the most popular stop for motorcycle riders is about 24 miles away in Jerome, an old mining town – now a weird destination…head on to Williams, your gateway to the Grand Canyon. Overnight.
This morning you enter Route 64 north, which will take you into the Grand Canyon National Park – time for some spiritual moments at the Grand Canyon – this magnificent site is far larger than anything you can imagine. Continue on Route 64, which is breathtaking in its desolation - that is until you reach Hwy 89 at Cameron. Turn left and head towards Page. You are in Navajo Country here – legend has it that this barren land was a bewitched place, where the trees died of fear. You overnight in Page.
From Page you take Hwy 89 west and cruise the Vermillion Cliffs and about 8 miles out of Page you will enter Utah. The scenery dissipates and the long straight roads change little until you get to the section of Grande Escalante – arches striped red, brown and white dot the landscape here. At Mount Carmel Junction you pick up Hwy 9, which takes you all the way to Zion National Park. Compared to Yosemite and the Grand Canyon, Zion exudes a stronger sense of nature. Here, you and your bike make immediate contact with the environment. Check out the Seven-Mile Zion Park Scenic Drive – a great ride! Overnight.
From Zion you head to Las Vegas. Take Hwy 15, which will take you all the way into Las Vegas. En route you might want to stop at the historic town of Mesquite, situated at the stateline of Nevada/Arizona. You will arrive into Las Vegas – the city steeped in excess – from the north. It’s probably a good idea to experience Las Vegas for yourself to get a fair idea of this place. After all it’s a playground for adults, a place where you can feel the same freedom you experience on your bike. Overnight.
You are leaving Las Vegas and head southeast on Hwy 147 towards Hoover Dam, one of the tallest dams ever built (760 ft). Designed to block the Colorado River and provide low-cost electricity for the cities of the Southwest – you should take some time to look at the site. Continue on Hwy 93 to Kingman. Kingman is considered the “heart of Historic Route 66” as it’s situated in the middle of the longest remaining stretch of this old “Mother Road”. You ride Route 66 up to Seligman, another one of the longest surviving stretches of Route 66, and further on into Flagstaff. Overnight.
From Flagstaff you take Hwy 17 and ride through Cococino National Forest. You might want to make a stop at Montezuma Castle to see the ancient Indian Cliff Dwellings. Continue your ride down south and head back to Phoenix, where you return your motorcycle and transfer back to your hotel. Overnight.
Today your exciting trip will end with your departure flight back home.
