Departure from Rome or Milan with British Airways flight and arrival in Denver. Free transfer to the hotel. Denver has the charm of an urban city and at the same time the mystery of the Old Wild West. Located just over 1 kilometer above sea level the capital of Colorado was one of the first settlements not to have been built in a navigable body of water or close to a functioning railway. Here a grain of gold was discovered which led many avid seekers to settle there although such a large gold discovery had never been made, William H. Larimer arrived in 1859 and devised a plan for the city. Today the city of Denver is a thriving commercial and financial center but the light it shone at its dawn has not yet gone out.
Collection of the rented motorcycles and departure from Denver in the morning to the Rocky Mountain National Park. Here the Mountains cast their gaze into the wonderful landscape at their fee, with pine and coniferous forests and fields of wild flowers that create a spectacular panorama. The park is home to American deer, mule deer, beavers, coyotes, river otters, moose, Rocky Mountain sheep and many singing birds. Trail Ridge Road, west of the park is considered one of America's largest scenic state roads. It was designated All-American Road in 1996, one of the top 6 in America. The exhibits at the Alpine Information Office at the Fall River Pass about 3.5 km above sea level illustrate the life of the Alpine tundra.

You can enjoy a full day on a motorcycle starting from Rapid City for a trip to the Badlands National Park and the nearby town of Wall, for a visit to the Wounded Knee Museum.

Departure from Cody to Yellowstone National Park. It was the first national park in the world and the example model on which national parks around the world were created. One of the main attractions of the park is a famous geyser, the Old Faithful, named for its punctuality and predictability; its eruptions always last from 1 to 5 minutes and reach up to 25 meters in height. Yellowstone is also home to herds of wild buffalo, the country's largest nature reserve, a huge lake, the Continental Divide, around 10000 hydrothermal attractions and over 1500 kilometers of trails. Why not explore the park's interesting sites and hydrothermal attractions by walking on the comfortable wooden walkways? The wildlife of Yellowstone is as spectacular as the hydrothermal attractions. Thanks to the remote location of the park and its large size the animals roam free and have the opportunity to live in a natural environment just like their breed has lived for centuries. Elk, buffalo and American deer are the animals that mostly populate the park.
Overnight stay in Yellowstone.
Another full day to spend in Yellowstone National Park. Established in 1872 it is the first national park in the United States. Located between the states of Wyoming, Montana and Idaho it is an area that covers approximately 9000 square km. Wonder of nature, it houses an infinite variety of mammals, about 67 species, 330 species of birds and numerous types of fish that make it one of the main sanctuaries of the world's fauna. It also hosts 7 species of conifers and around 1000 species of flowers.
The park contains approximately half of the world's hydrothermal capacity; there are over 10,000 hydrothermal sources, including over 300 geysers.
Wild animal lovers will be fascinated by the opportunity to spot grizzly bears, deer, elk and wild sheep. The most famous inhabitants of Yellowstone are the majestic bisons, also called buffalos, which have lived in the park for over a hundred years, fighting hunters and resisting the hunger of the winter months. Today there are 3500 specimens. Overnight stay.
Today you will drive through Yellowstone Park in the direction of Jackson Hole where you can pass in front of the Grand Teton Mountains. This mountain chain is about 65 km long and on average there is a snowfall of almost 5 meters. The 4197 m high Grand Teton is the highest peak in the chain. The mountains, often covered with snow are spectacular, it is worth stopping at one of the many views to take some photos.

The surrounding woods were between 1820 and 1840 a popular destination for hunters of skins. The popularity of these lands had new vigor at the end of the 18th century, when horse thief William C "Teton" Jackson chose them as his hiding place, giving a new radiance to the cowboy tradition typical of the area.
Overnight stay in Riverton.
Departure from Riverton to Laramie where the western tradition is still alive and permeates the atmosphere, so much so that history buffs can also beat the paths of the famous outlaws who preyed on cattle herds, attacked banks and trains. In Hainer, Kid Curry and the famous Sundance Kid and Butch Cassidy were part of the group called The Wild Bunch, the "Wild Pile". Their first hideout was "hole in the wall", a desolate valley in north central Wyoming which took its name from the crack in the cliff for which you entered. It was hidden by a very high wall of red rock, reachable through an impervious gorge full of caves and narrow passages. Laramie's Wyoming Territorial Prison where Butch Cassidy was imprisoned, is now a very interesting museum.
