  • Day 1-2: Las Vegas, Route 66 & Grand Canyon National Park

    This morning you'll leave Vegas, but fear not you'll be back! For now, it's time to embark on one heck of an adventure, packed full of red rocks and canyons. Fill up your bags with tons of awesome Route 66 memorabilia in the little desert town of Seligman. Refuel at Delgadillo's Snow Cap Diner with an unmissable ice cream sundae. Then next up is the daddy of all canyons, the Grand Canyon - a creation that will leave you wanting to high five Mother Nature. As soon as you set eyes on this epic landscape you'll quickly see why this place is special to both locals and tourists alike. With two nights here you'll have plenty of time to explore this wonderland from the clifftop 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 the colours explode around you.
    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. It's the awesome landscape that people come for, but it's the incredible Navajo people that ensure Monument Valley will stay etched in your memory. Immerse yourself in the native culture on an optional guided jeep tour of the Navajo Reservation and backroads. Marvel at the sight of towering buttes and mesas which dominate the awe-inspiring landscape during the day. When the sun goes down you'll be swapping camp fire stories under a blanket of stars.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 4: Moab & Arches National Park

    En route to Moab stop at the viewpoint of Moki Dugway for a superb view of the road snaking down the mountainside, through the red-rock desert. Known for being the USA's adventure playground, Moab is next on your itinerary. Arches is called Arches National Park for a reason and as you start to explore you'll be amazed at the countless red rock formations that have been moulded by the elements and are 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. 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 two days will knock your socks off!
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 7: Goblin Valley State Park, Capitol Reef National Park, 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 Canyon National Park. This park has left many people speechless as they try to find the right words to describe this fantastic and unique place. Erosion is the culprit here as over time it has carved thousands of spires, fins and mazes into a weird and wonderful landscape of which you won't have 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

    Next up is Zion National Park, with its picture perfect rivers, waterfalls, narrow canyons, towering red-and-white cliffs and awesome hiking trails, it's a real stunner. Kick back and relax beside the gentle flow of the Virgin River or for the best views in the park hike to the famous Angels Landing which offers 360 degrees of the entire park. It's most definitely not for the faint hearted, but be brave and the incredible views will be yours to enjoy. If you prefer to take the low road, explore The Narrows with soaring walls, sandstone grottos and 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

    Trade in the wonders of the great outdoors for the contagious buzz of Las Vegas with its awesome clubs and glamourous hotels. Celebrate the end of a great Southwest adventure with an optional helicopter ride down The Strip. 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.
