My dream realized. “For many years I dreamed about Route66 USA and now I realized the dream” Hanne Våg of Norway says.

After crossing the United States on a Harley, she knows what sense of freedom means.
Like a shortcut to freedom
The history. Route66 was partially completed in 1927 as the first freeway of its kind. It connected urban and rural America from Chicago to Los Angeles, crossing eight states and three time zones. Like a highway the “mother road” serviced millions of truckers and roadtrippers for decades. Families who were forced to leave their homes during the Great Depression with few resources and a little hope. They motored west on Route66 in search of a better life. This “road of dreams”, symbolising a pathway to easier times, and cut across the country like a shortcut to freedom.
Safe journey. Our trip, we left Chicago towards LA with our experienced tour guides and organizers who have sent people in both directions for 15 years.
“If you plan to go on just one holiday in your entire life, you should do Route66. It shows the real America. Thousands have followed their dreams and driven with us ”, says organizer Arve Stallvik in Route66usa.info.
Grand Canyon and Texas
You experience the wealthiest and some of the poorest of the United States and above all real Americans. You get the best of Hollywood, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon and Texas. You’ll meet cowboys and those living in Indian reservations. You can see extraordinary scenery, desert, stay in hotels with outdoor pool and experience the sun every day.
“The journey is like driving through a 4000 km-long live museum with blue sky and perfect temperature all the way. You are safe driving with us and there is hardly any traffic on the roads. We are the world´s largest Route66-company and there is a reason why riders from China, Brazil, Germany and Scandinavia choose to ride with us”, Stallvik says.
