Arrival Arrangements...

At the beginning of the trip you will want to fly into Jackson International Airport. We will be there to offer a shuttle from the airport to our first overnight location at the Natchez Grand Hotel

This hotel is located about two hours south west of Jackson MS and therefore we will have limited shuttle runs. If you plan on taking the Alpaca shuttle from Jackson International please coordinate your travel plans with the A-Team.

Renting a car: If you are planning on arriving before the Alpaca shuttle window, Enterprise might be a good alternative for you. They have a pickup location at the airport and a drop-off location in Natchez MS. 

Questions about the tour...

What kind of bike should I bring?

  • We recommend bringing a road bike or performance hybrid. All riding will be done on paved surfaces.

Can I drive my car to the start point?

  • You are welcome to drive and long term park your car at The Natchez Welcome Center for the entirety of the tour, however; there will not be an Alpaca Shuttle back to the starting point. 

What if I can't ride the whole thing?

  • If you have concerns about the daily mileage, most days we can provide you with a shorter alternate route.

Departure Arrangements...

You should make all departing flight arrangements through Nashville International Airport. On the last morning after breakfast at the hotel, Alpaca Shuttles will begin running to the airport and continue through the afternoon as needed. 

If you are planning on staying in Nashville and need to rent a car, we can get you to Enterprise from the hotel. Extended lodging and transportation plans must be made on your own outside the tour.
