California Extension CBE

California   |  Nevada

Discover the most beautiful and famous roads, landscapes and national parks of the Southwest of the United States of America.

If you want to see the best of the Southwest in less than two weeks, then this is the tour for you! We have packed the blue-green Pacific, the red-brown desert and the clear blue sky into one great trip.

From bustling California, with its beautiful coast and palm trees, we ride east into some of the best scenery on the planet. National parks like the Grand Canyon, Arches, Bryce and Zion are the highlights of this tour, but riding the famous Route 66 and seeing the lights of Las Vegas sparkle in the distance are just as memorable. If you have ever dreamed of riding an endless highway with no traffic, you will find it here! You will also find great and twisty motorcycle roads with turns perfect for every taste!

If two weeks of unforgettable experiences is too little for you, then you might like to extend your tour by taking the California Extension, which includes visits to California’s Sierra Nevada, with its famous Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks!

California Extension

This Edelweiss motorcycle tour is a trip which does not skip any of America’s western highlights. While riding from national park to national park, one can see almost all of the natural wonders to be found in this area. Antelope Cave is just one of the big ones. There are others along the route, each and every day. This tour is also very relaxing without getting boring at any time. Endless curves and great scenery let a motorcyclist‘s heart beat higher. Also, we spent some time in the shimmering metropolis of Las Vegas and Los Angeles and enjoyed some great time shopping around. I think I will do this tour again to be able to soak in even more of the fantastic highlights and moments we were allowed to experience on this tour.

About America

Though we have travelled parts of Southern California on other trips, we chose this part of the world again. Las Vegas is truly a fascinating metropolis and the buzzing atmosphere is something everyone should experience at least once. Leaving Las Vegas, we dove into the endless vastness of the country and its beautiful valleys. Our route led us through the California mountains and on to the Pacific Coast, where San Diego awaited us. We especially enjoyed the curvy backroads at the end of our tour. The trip made us want to do it all over again.
