  • Day 1-2: San Francisco, Yosemite National Park (25-26 Dec)

    Come fog or shine the city of San Francisco is awesome and a tour of the `City by the Bay' is a great way to kick start your winter adventure. The scenery changes fast with the road twisting and turning until Yosemite National Park comes into view. What better way to spend Christmas than an included activity snowshoeing under frosted Sequoias and frozen waterfalls? There's definitely something quite magical seeing Yosemite decorated under a blanket of snow.
    Accommodation: Hostel included

  • Day 3: Route 66 and Barstow (27 Dec)

    You've probably dreamt of cruising down historic Route 66 on the great American road trip and you'll be doing just that as you roll into lively Barstow. Kick back in the heart of the Mojave Desert, the gateway to Death Valley National Park, and enjoy the desert view over a burger at Peggy Sue's 50's Diner.
    Accommodation: Hotel included

  • Day 4: Death Valley National Park (28 Dec)

    Trade your mittens and woolly hats for sunscreen and shades! Leaving early you visit one of the hottest places on earth, Death Valley! In this below-sea-level basin, steady drought and record summer heat make Death Valley a land of extremes. Towering peaks are capped with winter snow and rainstorms bring vast fields of wildflowers. Lush oasis' harbour tiny fish and refuge for wildlife and humans. Head down to the valley floor and take a walk on the salt flats where you can get creative with some cool perspective shots. Despite its morbid name, a great diversity of life survives in Death Valley and winter is the best possible time to visit.
    Accommodation: Hotel included

  • Day 5-6: Zion National Park (29-30 Dec)

    Onto Zion National Park, where a desert oasis is transformed by a blanket of snow. Again, the warm winter temperatures are perfect for exploring the canyon without the summer crowds. For the best views in the park hike to the famous Angels Landing which offers 360 degrees of the entire park (subject to weather conditions).
    Accommodation: Hotel included

  • Day 7: Las Vegas (31 Dec)

    Rolling into Las Vegas on a natural high, kick off those boots and throw on your best party outfit. If there's one city that knows how to party it's Vegas baby! If you're looking for the one New Year's Eve party you'll remember for the rest of your life, look no further. The Strip fills with revellers, fireworks explode over iconic hotels, the resort hotels and nightclubs are packed, the showrooms are filled with A-list entertainers and Vegas is more gloriously alive than you could ever imagine. New Year's Eve in Las Vegas is truly a world-class celebration, so have a blast and start your new year off in style!
    Accommodation: Hotel included

  • Day 8: Las Vegas (01 Jan)

    You're adventure comes to an end this morning, but why not add on some extra nights to spend some more time exploring `Sin City'.
