In addition to exploring the beauty of Joshua Tree National Park, guests will enjoy a private cycling tour of architecturally-significant Palm Springs homes. These include the former homes of Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and the Kaufmann Desert House, a 70-year old masterwork of design and construction.
“This desert oasis is a perfect mid-winter destination,” says Trek Travel President Tania Burke, “with a unique opportunity to experience the high style of this retro town by bike.”
Guests will stay in an architecturally-significant setting as well, as they use Korakia Pensione as their base. This is a Moroccan villa originally named Dar Marroc that was built in 1924 and was the former hideaway of Scottish painter Gordon Coutts.
In addition to soaking up the mid-century modern elegance of Palm Springs, participants will have access to the region’s world-class natural resources.
Guests will visit a river in the desert at the Whitewater Preserve, take a hike on the Pacific Crest Trail, spend two full days in the stunning beauty of Joshua Tree National Park and marvel at towering palms and wildlife at a number of palm oases.
The five-day, four-night trip begins and ends in Palm Springs, CA and is priced from $2,999 per person. It is available January 21 – 25, January 28 – February 1, February 4 – 8, February 11 – 15 and February 18 – 22, 2018.
