  • Day 1-2: San Francisco & Yosemite National Park

    Bid San Francisco a reluctant farewell and head east through California; this sure is one good looking state! You'll know you're getting closer to Yosemite with the scenery outside your window getting better the closer you get to the national park. Once inside you'll have the opportunity to hike or bike through the extraordinary landscape of glacier-carved granite monoliths and spectacular waterfalls. Keep your eyes peeled and your cameras at the ready for some incredible wildlife sightings. You're often not the only ones exploring the park with bears seen frequently in 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; whatever activities you get up to in Yosemite, you're sure to have a blast.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 3-4: Las Vegas

    It's time get down and dirty in Sin City. Feel like a total boss as you cruise the Las Vegas Strip in your very own stretch limo. Party the night away in some of the best nightclubs around or, if that's not your bag, take in the thrills of the world's craziest roller coasters perched at the top of the Stratosphere. The shows, the the clubs, the all-you-can eat buffets; the Neon City's hottest spots are sure to impress. Just remember, `what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!' If you're still left wanting more, take a helicopter flight down the Strip to see the neon lights from above then for something a little different you can even have you own Vegas wedding! (Don't worry though, it's not for real!)!
    Accommodation: Hotel included in tour price

  • Day 5: Grand Canyon National Park

    As natural wonders go, the Grand Canyon is up there with the best of them! Luckily enough for you, you get spend loads of time exploring the park with your fellow Trekkers. As soon as you lay your eyes upon the vast canyon before you, there will be no words that can describe just how epic this place is. From sunset to sunrise the Grand Canyon will leave you inspired and wanting to see more of this desert wonderland. Keep your feet firmly on the ground or swoop above and see the Grand Canyon in all its glory on an optional helicopter flight. A hike along the South Kaibab Trail will lead you to the very aptly named `Ooh Aah Point' where you'll experience what it feels like to be in the canyon and see all of the its sheer awesomeness up close and personal.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 6: Route 66 & Colorado River

    Just down the road from the Grand Canyon is an opportunity to pick up some awesome road trip souvenirs in Seligman, the birthplace of the original Route 66. This town captures the very heart of life on the road. Once you've had your fill of pure Americana, it's time to cruise through the vast, cactus studded desert of Arizona before ending the day with refreshing dip in the Colorado River. It's your final night with your new found friends, so get that campfire roaring and the s'mores toasting.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 7: Los Angeles

    Fresh from nature's most dramatic sets, you've stepped right into Movieland itself.
