The rugged beauty of Baja!

Join us for this adrenaline-packed dirt bike adventure through Baja’s rugged beauty. You will visit some of the iconic stops of the famous Baja 1000 off-road race. Traveling through the sparsely populated landscape will make you soon realize that the middle of nowhere is more beautiful than you ever imagined.

This ride will leave you breathless!

This off-road round tour starts near San Diego and leads you through the fascinating scenery of northern peninsula Baja California in Mexico. The route takes you through Jeffrey pine and oak forests, high mountain meadows, desert chaparral and cactus forests, along the deep blue sea to heights of the Sierra de Juárez up to 5000ft above sea level. Enjoy the breathtaking views and Mexican ambience. Since the peninsula is only between 26 and 149 miles wide in this area, we will ride from the wild Pacific coast to the quiet Sea of Cortez. This Tour is mostly on unpaved roads, some fun trails and demanding single tracks. With a little luck we'll even see one of the main attractions of Baja, the giant gray whales. Cacti of all shapes and sizes accompany us throughout this journey. The Cardon, with up to more than 65 ft in height and a diameter of 5 ft is the largest cactus in the world. We might even discover some ancient rock paintings or petroglyphs along this awesome route. We will end the days with some great Mexican cuisine, marvelous sunsets, and cozy accommodations.

Let us take away the headache of prepping a trip to the unknown!

This off-road tour offers a variety of terrain with a few pavement sections now and then. You must be at least an intermediate dirt biker to enjoy this tour; however, any expert street biker in good physical condition can manage. There are sections where we ride true single trails, other areas we will zip along curvy back roads or some past Baja 1000 race course sections. Rough and tough during the day, cozy and comfy at night... that's our motto! Each tour is accompanied by lead and sweep rider, equipped with tools, first aid kit, GPS, and satellite phone. A support vehicle carrying your luggage will meet you at designated stops along the route. Two-up riding is not possible.

Highlights:    Forest, Desert & Blue Sea, the Juarez and San Pedro Martir Mountains, Pacific Ocean, Beach Riding, Bay of Cortez, some Baja Race Course, Dry Lake Beds, Laguna Hanson, El Rosario, Cardón Cacti, Great Single Trails
