Tour Overview

California's Finest Biking & Hiking Vacation

Experience this otherworldly Southern California bike tour recognized by Conde Nast Traveler’s list of “8 Bike Tours Around the World that are Anything but Boring.” Hike and bike through a region that showcases towering mountain ranges and unusual desert landscapes.

Along with the presence of striking Joshua trees, for which this national park was named, Joshua Tree National Park features expansive vistas and unusual rock formations which draw climbers from around the world. Southern California’s towering San Jacinto Mountains form an impressive backdrop to the valley floor in Palm Springs. The palm canyons of the Santa Rosa foothills where you will hike, provide shelter for herds of bighorn sheep.

Though Palm Springs had its heyday during the mid-twentieth century when it was one of the most fashionable getaways for movie stars and celebrities, the recent decade has seen it have a dramatic resurgence in popularity. The area’s Mid-Century Modern homes are fetching top dollar and downtown Palm Springs features a number of excellent restaurants, hotels, and a growing arts scene.

Our Palm Springs and Joshua Tree National Park bike tours feature distinctive accommodations in Palm Springs and Borrego Springs. Summer rains portend glorious wildflower blooms in late fall while the combination of select accommodations and breathtakingly diverse scenery form the ideal framework for this exciting and unique Southern California bike trip.
