The roughly 6-mile Country Tour follows Fredensborg Canyon Road, a route along which tourists can spot plentiful wildlife. Alternately, the 5-mile City Tour wends through the Danish city of Solvang, following the town’s river and passing by the city’s landmarks. Both tours close with a wine tasting at the Lucas & Lewellen Vineyards Tasting Room, voted the best tasting room in the area by readers of the Santa Ynez Valley News.
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 a wine tasting.
All tours include a mandatory orientation on Segway use, all the necessary equipment—including a helmet—and a guide.
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.
