Day 1-2: Los Angeles, Colorado River & Grand Canyon
Mark the start of your California holidays with a short tour of Hollywood before leaving city life behind as you and travel through California to the vast cactus-prickled desert of Arizona. Spend an evening along the Colorado River before exploring America's premier national park, and witness for the very first time, the epic Grand Canyon. You'll soon see why this natural wonder attracts tons of visitors each year. Keep your feet firmly on the ground or soar above the stunning landscape on an optional helicopter flight. One thing's for sure, this place looks incredible from any angle, but to see it in all its majestic glory head over to the rim and watch the sun rise or sunset. Trust us when we say you'll never have seen anything so beautiful!
Accommodation: Camping included
Day 3-4: Las Vegas
Today you drive along a section of the original route 66 to the town of Seligman which stands frozen in time and is a great place to pick up some fab Route 66 memorabilia for your friends and family back home. Next stop is Las Vegas for the ultimate party pit stop! The Strip, the shows, the clubs; Sin City's glitziest and hottest spots are sure to impress as you cruise the Las Vegas Boulevard on an included limo ride! If heights don't scare you, head to the top of the Stratosphere to ride some of the world's highest roller coasters or take a helicopter flight down The Strip and see this neon city from the sky. It's also possible to get married in Vegas (don't worry, it's not legally binding unless you want it to be) so live for the moment and marry whoever (and whatever) you like!
Accommodation: Hotel included
Day 5-6: Yosemite National Park
Leave the desert behind you and head west through the beautiful Californian countryside eventually arriving in Yosemite National Park. Here you'll get the opportunity to hike or bike through the extraordinary landscape of glacier-carved granite monoliths and spectacular waterfalls. Once you hit the trails, keep your eyes peeled and your cameras at the ready for some incredible wildlife sightings. Bears often frequent the area and when the sun goes down listen out for coyotes howling amidst the pines and Sequoias. This is a paradise for any lover of the outdoors and whatever activities you get up to in Yosemite, you're sure to have a blast.
Accommodation: Camping included
Day 7: San Francisco
Today is the final day of your California holidays and your Trek adventure, but that doesn't mean the fun is over, oh no! Your next and final stop is the awesome city of San Francisco, famous for its waterfront full of tasty seafood and what is probably one of the world's most iconic landmarks, the Golden Gate Bridge. Explore the quirky bars and cafes where the beatnik generation hung out or grab a bite to eat in Chinatown. You'll never be bored in San Francisco, so grab your new found friends and say goodbye in style!
