  • Day 1-2: Las Vegas & Grand Canyon National Park

    It's time to leave the bright lights of Las Vegas behind you as you embark on one heck of an awesome adventure packed full of red rocks and canyons. Stop for a view of the Hoover Dam before hitting the iconic Route 66's quirky little town of Seligman for an unmissable visit to Delgadillo's Snow Cap Diner. Next up is the daddy of all canyons, the Grand Canyon - a creation Mother Nature should be proud of. As soon as you set eyes on this epic landscape you'll quickly see why this place is so special to both locals and tourists alike. With two nights here you will have plenty of time to explore this wonderland from the cliff top trails down to the deeper depths of the canyon to Plateau Point. For the ultimate Grand Canyon experience take to the sky on an optional helicopter flight and see the mighty canyon from above. If you want to be amazed whilst keeping your feet firmly on the ground then make sure you watch as the sun sets or rises on the canyon and watch in awe as the colours explode.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 3: Monument Valley

    On the road again and off to one of North America's most iconic landscapes, used as the set for countless Western movies, including the recent remake of The Lone Ranger. Immerse yourself in the native culture on an optional guided jeep tour of the Navajo Reservation and back roads. As you marvel at the sight of towering buttes and mesas which dominate the awe-inspiring landscape during the day, wait till the sun goes down and you're swapping camp fire stories under a blanket of stars.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 4: Moab & Arches National Park

    Known for being the USA'S natural adventure playground Moab is next up on your itinerary. Arches is called Arches National Park for a reason and as you start to explore you will be amazed at the countless red rock formations that have been moulded by the elements dotted all over the park. Delicate Arch is what everyone comes here to see and you'll be truly amazed as you witness the iconic red arch against the backdrop of the bright blue western sky.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 5-6: 4x4 Backcountry Desert Adventure

    This is what you've been waiting for, the ultimate adventure experience. If you're searching for unique desert solitude this is it as you travel from Moab, Utah across Green River Desert to the Maze District of Canyonlands National Park. This two day backcountry 4x4 adventure is what `getting off the beaten track' is all about. Along the way hike to Horseshoe Canyon and see if you can spot some unique rock art. Feel like you have stepped into another world as you explore High Spur slot canyon, you'll want to have your camera fully charged as High Spur is said to be one of the most photogenic slot canyons in the area. There is no doubt about it these next two days will knock your socks off.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 7: Bryce Canyon National Park & Kodachrome Basin State Park

    Stop by Goblin Valley State Park, so-called thanks to its weird goblin-like rock formations, and the petroglyphs at Capitol Reef National Park en route to Bryce National Park. This park has left many people speechless as they try to describe this fantastical place, where erosion has carved thousands of spires, fins and mazes into a weird and wonderful landscape of which you will have not seen anything like before. These bizarre creations are known as "Hoodoos". As you move on to Kodachrome Basin State Park you'll continue to be amazed at the surrounding landscape, as the name suggests this park is packed full of colours and as the sun sets it just gets better.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 8-9: Zion National Park

    Kick back and relax beside the gentle flow of the Virgin River, cutting its way between sheer red rock cliffs. For the best views in the park hike to the famous Angels Landing which offers 360 degrees of the entire park, it is definitely worth the effort. If you prefer to take the low road explore `The Narrows' with its soaring walls, sandstone grottos, natural springs, it truly is a unique experience with great views of Zion from the valley floor.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 10: Zion National Park & Las Vegas

    As you trade in the wonders of the great outdoors for the contagious buzz of Las Vegas with its awesome clubs and casinos. Celebrate the end of a great southwest adventure with a helicopter ride down The Strip and see the bright lights from above or simply chill out and relax by the hotel swimming pool, after all you deserve it after all that canyon action.

    This tour ends at our gateway hotel at approximately 17:00 hrs. We can book you post-tour accommodation at our gateway hotel if required. If you are planning to fly tonight, please do not book a flight that departs before 21:00 hrs.
