On the Figueroa Mountain tour, participants follow their guide up a paved road to the mountain’s peak, more than 4,000 feet above sea level. At the mountain’s summit, groups stop for boxed lunches and admire views of the Pacific Ocean.
The Solvang City tour wends through the Danish-style city of Solvang, following the town’s river and passing by its landmarks. Tour-goers wheel across the Santa Ynez River Sanctuary and weave through the ancient oak trees in Hans Christian Andersen Park.

Segway Tours of Solvang
In the olden days, cowboys explored the West astride their trusty horses. Segway Tours of Solvang puts a modern spin on this tradition, by organizing guided tours that explore Western terrain atop a more modern steed—the segway.
After a mandatory training session on segway handling, guides lead segway tourists on off-road jaunts through the Santa Ynez Valley, or up its highest peak, Figueroa Mountain. For a more urban experience, riders can explore the Danish city of Solvang, stopping to see a river sanctuary and the ancient live oaks in Hans Christian Andersen Park.
Some tours are paired with a wine tasting, which allows participants to sample multiple vintages without instead of sipping from jars of expired grape jelly. The company also offers tours in Colorado and Arizona, where explorers can drink in the sights and scenery from transport that ranges from Jeeps to hot-air balloons.
