Expedition: Baja Siesta | 4/3 - 4/7

Expedition: Baja Siesta will be similar to our other Baja adventures but with a more relaxed pace and focus on family fun. We will be visiting a beautiful winery in Valle de Guadalupe for lunch and wine tasting in addition to exploring some of the most beautiful off-road trails in the world.

 

This is the run for you if have been wanting to bring your kids or introduce your significant other to off-roading in Baja in a more relaxed setting than our Raptor runs.

This run is open to all makes and models with some basics requirements. You can find there requirements here: Baja Siesta Requirements

 

We can’t wait to share what many of us feel is the pinnacle of off-road experiences.  Our focus for this event is to provide each participant the experience of a lifetime. This is much more than just plotting a course and chasing dust…  our goal is to let each participant discover for themselves the bit of Baja magic that can only be experienced… not simply described.  Our focus aims on ensuring a safe, relaxing, and fun run for all participants. We will guide you through in the safest manner possible while still allowing you to cut loose and experience true off-road freedom.

 

Expedition: Baja will begin in Wednesday 4/3 and end Sunday 4/7
