Route 66 Wild West 8 Day Guided Motorcycle Tour
Every rider dreams of riding their favourite motorcycle down historic Route 66! The Route 66 - 8 Day Guided Motorcycle Tour is designed for those who simply don't have the time to commit two weeks to the full ride from Chicago to Los Angeles.
What makes this trip great is that it takes in some of the best parts of Route 66 in California and Arizona, while also making stops in Palm Springs, Laughlin, Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park and, of course, Las Vegas.
You will see the famous Route 66 sights in Amboy, Kingman, Seligman, Hackberry, Williams and world famous Oatman, Arizona, and you'll do it all in the company of good friends on the saddle of your favourite motorcycle. This motorcycle tour runs separate of our Wild West group, but stays at the same hotels each night, which makes for a great party and bragging on who had a better day between the two groups! See you on 66!

Day 1 : Los Angeles Arrival
Please take the shuttle bus to your Los Angeles airport hotel. EagleRider’s representative will be present at the hotel lobby to give you information about the upcoming trip. Explore L.A.’s night life in Hollywood or Santa Monica or just get a goodnight’s sleep.
Day 2 : Palm Springs, California
Distance: 190 miles
After your Welcome Breakfast the moment has come. You'll transfer to EagleRider in Los Angeles to pick-up your bike. After orientation head south and ride the winding mountain road down to Lake Elsinore. Soar like an eagle through the roads of San Bernardino National Forest and further into Palm Springs, where you'll spend the first night.
Day 3 : Laughlin, Nevada
Distance: 232 miles
Today we take a loop through Joshua Tree National Park. Enjoy the amazing colours and fantastic rock formations! At Twenty nine Palms your trip gets legendary appeal, as we enter Historic Route 66 in Amboy, which is our road all the way up towards Laughlin. We cross the state line into Nevada and arrive in Laughlin, where we overnight.
Day 4 : Grand Canyon National Park
Distance: 245 miles
Continue your ride on legendary Route 66 into Arizona, stop for wild animals in Oatman and ride further on to Kingman, which is considered to be the heart of Historic Route 66, as it’s situated in the middle of the longest remaining stretch of the old Mother Road. From Kingman you head for Seligman, another one of the longest surviving stretches of Route 66, which heads off in a northern loop through the Hualapai Indian Reservation. After lunch continue your ride towards the majestic Grand Canyon.
Day 5 : Monument Valley
Distance: 170 miles
We spend the morning at the Grand Canyon to get some fantastic views. Then we’ll cruise along the South Rim for a few miles and leave Grand Canyon National Park at the East entrance. Now it’s off to the incredible Monument Valley. This is Navajo Country here and you are in for an authentic Navajo lunch today. The classic Wild West landscape of stark sandstone buttes and forbidding pinnacles of rock, poking from an endless expanse of drifting red sands, has an archetypal image. Only when you arrive at Monument Valley you will come to realize how much your perception of the West has in fact been shaped by this one spot. Such scenery does exist elsewhere, of course, but nowhere is it so perfectly distilled. We head for Mexican Hat, where we overnight. Get into an Indian spiritual mood tonight.
Day 6 : Bryce Canyon
Distance: 340 miles
From Kayenta we will ride up to sleepy Mexican Hat, briefly a frenzied gold-mining camp, which takes its name from a riverside sandstone hoodoo – it actually looks like a south-of-the-border sombrero. We ride on to the Valley of the Gods, where much of the movie “Thelma and Louise” was filmed, and cross the Colorado River where it pours into Lake Powell. Lake Powell has 1960 miles of shoreline, which is more than the entire Pacific Coast and 96 water-filled side canyons. We ride along the southern tip of Capitol Reef National Park, on to Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and roar on up to the Devil’s Backbone through the Escalante Wilderness en route to Bryce Canyon, where we overnight.
Day 7 : Las Vegas
Distance: 250 miles
This morning there will be time to visit the amazing Bryce Canyon before we continue to Zion National Park. Besides seeing the most beautiful rock formations found anywhere on earth, you are in for a most challenging ride here – the switchbacks of Zion! Compared to Yosemite and the Grand Canyon, Zion exudes a stronger sense of nature. From Zion it is only a short ride into the neon oasis of Las Vegas where you’ll return your bikes. Tonight get ready for a recap of this great adventure at a Farewell Dinner.
Day 8 : Las Vegas Departure
Spend the morning relaxing, gambling or exploring before your flight home. Unless you want to extend your holiday. Perhaps jump in a mustang and explore Utah or Nevada? Maybe fly to Hawaii for some time on the beach?
